Brave Shine piano arr. Animenz ~ Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Brave Shine, from Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, music by Hisashi Koyama, piano arranged by Animenz, played by Richard Yang on Yamaha N1X with Garritan CFX VST.

Brave Shine is such a satisfying piece to play, with powerful chords, big bass, and very impressive arrpegio/scale runs. If you watch Animenz’s performance, he made the piece “look” a lot more difficult than it actually is. FYI, when I play, all the body motion is what’s minimally required to play the piece; I do not do anything extra for show. With that in mind, I do find it funny at times wathcing other people play piano with all the I-believe-made-up-emotions on the face, etc. These all take additional processing power that I don’t like to waste. In any case, the arrpegio / scale runs near the end are very difficult, but everything else is quite manageable. Hopefully my piano lesson can help you out.

As with all of my performances, I have my own interpretation, so the tempo, dynamics, etc may feel quite different from the original recording. Simply put, I play the way I like it.
