Then comes the epic fourteen minute “Final Fantasy VII Suite”. For the first time piano is introduced into the mix too. Going straight from Opening ~ Bombing Mission the piano and strings interact at a whole new level as the drama unfolds in something you’d see in a more daring piano collections. It then transitions into the Main Theme, and then afterwards starts pounding out lots of themes seamlessly. The great thing is that sometimes it’s just for a line or two before it starts pouring into another theme. I don’t want to spoil what is played but it’s a magnificent feat and a real tour de force.
The fast-paced playing in Green Hill Zone suits Sonic's nature. It has a light and fluffy feel to it that reminded me of the fun older Sonic games had that later ones don't seem to capture.
“Working Together” is another fast paced, rousing tune that I very much enjoyed, and it works particularly well for string quartet.
