It’s a great time to be a fan of gaming music. On September 23rd, at 6 PM GMT (you can convert to your time zone here), WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln will be performing Nintendo music in full symphonic force, and the whole performance is going to be streamed live from the Symphonic Legends website.

The first half of the performance will be general Nintendo themed pieces, and the second half is to be all Zelda music. The previous concerts (also video game themed, though non-Nintendo), Symphonic Shades and Symphonic Fantasies both made it to CD releases, so chances are good that this performance will be available on CD as well.
