The Legend of Music: A look at the role of music and the Zelda Series (A Prelude)

Any fan of the Legend of Zelda series can tell you the role of music features just as much importance as Link, Zelda, and Gannon themselves.

It was a spectacle; a full orchestra and choir performing a five movement symphony and other selected pieces all synced to gameplay visuals. If you have the chance to go, I highly recommend it!
