A Trek Across A Composer’s Final Vision of Beauty

BT writes: Considering the humongous amount of music produced across the years, it’s no surprise that video games, alongside most other forms of media, have taken inspiration or more from existing scores and tracks. While there have been both subtle and obvious references throughout gaming, few are quite as clear as Eternal Sonata. Portrayed as the last dying dream of Frederic Chopin, the game takes place in a world based off both general music and Chopin’s life experiences. With that kind of musical background, it’s only natural that the songs for Eternal Sonata would be one of the, if not the most, important aspects of the game and the result is one massively impressive soundtrack. (Eternal Sonata, PS3)
