We’ve all heard fan arrangements and performances of famous Zelda songs before, but this most recent production is truly one of the greatest.  YouTube user devinsupertramp has uploaded a video of Lindsey Stirling performing four minutes of familar Zelda melodies on the violin, complete with beautiful costume, environments, and even background orchestration.  Lindsey’s catchphrase, “Have you ever seen a violinist rock out??” is truly accurate–check out the video for yourself after the jump.

Released just yesterday, this video is a soon-to-be hit.  The entire medley can be downloaded at the artist’s website, here.  What better way could there be to gear up for Skyward Sword than by revisiting the music of the previous Zelda titles?  Leave a comment and let us know what you think of this performance.

  • I like the Hyrule Temple theme in there. 8)

  • Gerudude

    Damn she's so sexy. I imagine a couple of bokoblins suddenly popping up, and then her shootin' some arrows with her violin strings.

  • aeolus

    That was one of, if not THE best (if I've seen better I don't remember) fan medley I've ever seen! Not only was the arrangement really fresh and just down right awesome, it was incredibly fun to watch. I love it!

  • Pharamos

    I don't mean to be THAT guy, but sneaking into the Gerudo Fortress while playing the violin probably isn't very efficient. But anyway, this is awesome 🙂

  • Nick Pollard

    I think it is strange that the last notes of the medley were oF Saria's song when arguably the most iconic music is surely the theme and Hyrule field music. I thought the medley was great just an odd ending that is all.

    • Zany Zant

      Yeah, I know what you mean. But it kinda reminded me of the ending of Majora's Mask though, so I liked it.

      • Serina

        Between that and the way the main theme makes me think of Termina Field at certain notes, this really reminded me of my childhood playing Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask!

  • Jean D'eau

    Thats one hot Link!

  • Darkstar

    Awesome songs and performance! I wonder if this was filmed in Canada…

  • GoldenGengle64

    Wow… impressive music and filming! Nice video! 🙂

    • Zelda3607

      i DEFINITELY agree!:)

  • jmoods

    I kinda wish she would move less. Just seems kinda weird with all the ducking and weaving.
    Now that's not saying I don't wanna marry her! I definitely wanna marry her, don't worry.

    • But that's her shtick. Dancing while playing the violin. She was on America's Got Talent for it and everything. 😀

  • The Cozmologist

    I wish I could do something like this, but I'd have to carry my piano into a forest…

  • Silvalogs

    The MUSIC! I got shivers throughout 4 minutes and 8 seconds of this video

    (Not to mention the person playing it is hothothothothothothothothothothothothothothothothot)

  • Twilit_Dragon

    People on gamer websites always thinks nerd girls are hot, when it's very rare they are, I can't stand the violin.

  • dnls2e

    The performance and the landscapes were ok. The part of the medley I absolutely dislike is the mangling of Gerudo Valley, which should never be justified. Oddly enough she is also selling the medley on her website, while claiming they did it for free.

  • Merq

    Very nice arrangement, but it bothered me how much she moves. Hard to concentrate on anything when the camera keeps shifting and the artist won't stay still for one second and her eyes are all over the place. But to each his own, she can do her thing the way she wants. And she's obviously very talented.

  • I together with my guys were actually reading the good solutions from your web blog and so before long got a terrible suspicion I never thanked the site owner for those secrets. All of the guys were absolutely warmed to read through them and have in effect truly been enjoying these things. Thank you for really being really thoughtful and then for finding varieties of decent subject areas millions of individuals are really desperate to learn about. My personal honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
