Final Fantasy XI Piano Collections, music by Naoshi Mizuta and Nobuo Uematsu, played by Richard Yang.
FFXI Piano Collections, while the music appears fairly simple, there’s a lot more to it than I thought. All the pieces actually require a lot more attention to the touch and pedaling. The arrangement is unlike any of the previous Piano Collections that I recorded. While these pieces are not as memorable as the previous ones, there’s a satisfying sophistication in each of the pieces.
I recorded the Piano Collections (FFV…X-2) back in the 2020 December COVID lockdown. Then the Piano Opera from late January to late March. FFXI and FFXIII were recorded right after, from April to early May. FFXI took about 2 weeks from learning to recording.
