Complete Final Fantasy Piano Opera

Final Fantasy Piano Opera, music by Nobuo Uematsu, arranged by Hiroyuki Nakayama, played by Richard Yang.

Due to COVID and a lot more time at home, I spent about a month to record the complete Piano Collections from V to X-2. After that I discovered the Final Fantasy “Piano Opera”. I was thoroughly impressed by the variety, musical complexity and technical difficulty of these pieces and I decided that I must record them all!

On YouTube, other than the original recording, I haven’t seen any channel with more than ~10 pieces from the Piano Opera series. I might be the first amateur pianist to record all of these. I learned and recorded the complete series between late January to late March of 2021, roughly 2 months. It should be record time for learning 37 pieces at this difficulty. It’s unfortunate that nothing I play is perfect, but should be pretty close and enjoyable otherwise.
