Japanese composer Nobuo Uematsu is one of the most prolific video game music composers around. If his name doesn't ring a bell, all you have to do is listen to the music of the Final Fantasy series of RPGs. Yes, he's the man behind the distinct fusion of classical symphonies, rock, and new age sounds heard from Final Fantasy soundtracks.
Uematsu's music has been a large part of the Final Fantasy franchise's popularity, and once again we get to hear Uematsu's masterpieces in Final Fantasy III.
Square Enix has put up the Final Fantasy III OST page where fans are treated to a sample of fine music especially created for the game. All tracks are arranged by Tsuyoshi Sekito and Keiji Kawamori.
