Featuring the music from games spanning Original PlayStation, PS2™, PS3™ and PS4™, the 80-strong Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be joined by the City of London Choir, complete with a spectacular light show. The programme includes music from The Last of Us™, The Last Guardian™, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves™ and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception™, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, LittleBigPlanet™ and Horizon Zero Dawn™, among others.
Presenting the show will be Jessica Curry, one of the leading figures in computer game music today, as well as being the BAFTA award-winning composer of the soundtrack to Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Jessica has also presented High Score on Classic FM, the UK’s most popular classical music station. High Score was the first series on British radio dedicated to video game music.
The concert will also feature the first use of EnCue at the Royal Albert Hall – a real-time programme note app that delivers media and content to concertgoers’ smartphones as the music unfolds from the stage.
