To mark Bethesda’s huge Skyrim re-release, Senbla, in association with Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax, have announced the first ever orchestral concert dedicated to Jeremy Soule’s compositions from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The event will premiere at London’s Palladium on November 16. The entire concert promises to take the concert goers on a nostalgic journey through one of the most popular instalments of The Elder Scrolls’ franchise. The “Winterhold Philharmonic Orchestra and choir” will perform new arrangements of Skyrim’s best musical compositions which includes Far Horizons, The Streets of Whiterun, and of course, Skyrim’s main theme, Dragonborn. Not to mention the other surprised on the night.
The Skyrim Special Edition releases towards the end of this month (October 28) on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For those who aren’t aware, the remastered edition will come installed with add-ons that contain remastered art, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen space reflections and more.
Controversy followed after the recent announcement as Skyrim’s music composer, Jeremy Soule wrote a post to his Facebook page where he states that he has nothing to do with the event, nor had he known about it until the announcement was made.
“This is the first I've heard of it. For the record, this concert has nothing to do with me, nor are they are using any of my original scores. They had to transcribe whatever notation they are performing by ear from the recordings.”
“For my fans, I just want you to know what you're getting if you pay to attend this concert. Be wary." -Jeremy Soule
Tickets for the event will go on sale via Ticketmaster at 10am BST, 4th October with prices starting at £26.50.
