Live Concert Featuring Music from Skyrim, Oblivion, and Morrowind Opens in London on November 16th

Grab your passport, pack your bags, and set GPS for London! A live concert, orchestrated by Andrew Skeet, is being held at the Palladium Theater opens on November 16th in London. You can get tickets here!

Concert

Not only will Skyrim in Concert feature music from Skyrim, but it will also feature selections from Morrowind and Oblivion as well! Skeet has worked with music from the franchise before, including his version of “Far Horizons” on the album “The Greatest Video Game Music 2”.

But before you get too excited, there’s a detail to the whole story that might give you pause. Jeremy Soule, the original composer of the music from Skyrim is not at all pleased. His concern is that firstly, he was not informed and is not involved with the performance of music he wrote – and secondly, the music is transcribed, and likely is “fraught with errors”. Soule said that Skeet took liberties with his version of Far Horizions. Further, Soule feels that there is no regard for his hard work  or the franchise showcasing it.

Soule cautioned fans that they wouldn’t be getting the original piece, and that he had nothing at all to do with it. All in all this is a grey lining on what could be a pretty silver cloud.

Concert

It’s always exciting to have my favorite game put to live  music and I am hopeful that this performance is not disappointing. It is understandable to feel slighted and it’s hard to say whether or not this will celebrate Soule’s work, or dismiss it. We will see on the 16th!

    Of course it isn’t the original….. it’s an interpretation. There are plenty of examples of this all over the gaming community ie. “Video Games Live” concert and all the fan made music on sites like Newgrounds. Jeremy should be flattered that his creation can spawn many beautiful and powerful recreations. Yet it ussual comes down to money. Since Bethesda own the rights he may feel he isn’t properly compensated….. gotta read that fine print. I personal would love to see this show.
