If you’re a gigantic nerd like I am, you probably already know about The Legend Of Zelda: Symphony Of The Goddesses concert series that has been around for a couple of years and is currently on tour. You may not have known, however, that the 74-piece orchestra and choir would be performing live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week. But they did, on Tuesday night, and they were phenomenal.
The Legend Of Zelda: Symphony Of The Goddesses is, of course, made up of music from the classic The Legend of Zelda video game. And it’s always interesting to me how, although I am a massive gamer, even if I wasn’t I would still listen to The Legend of Zelda music as it is so beautifully written.
Something I can guess may be the case with others as The Legend Of Zelda: Symphony Of The Goddesses live performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has already received over almost 600,000 views in the less than 24 hours it has been up on YouTube.
During the performance, the orchestra played the main The Legend of Zelda theme as well as new music from the Nintendo 3DS game The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes, which is due to be released on October 23rd. It was rousing and emotional and cool, and do note conductor Amy Andersson even had the Wind Walker in her hand at the end of the performance.
Now watch and listen to the live performance in the video below. Isn’t that beautiful?
