Video games like Final Fantasy or Angry Birds are a hit. As complex and multi-layered as the games is their music. Wonderful orchestral suites and new soundscapes that have nothing to do with the Gameboy sound will inspire gamer and classical music lovers alike and provide for goosebumps moments.

Jonne Valtonen (* 1976)
In a Roundabout Way (Fanfare: Final Symphony II)

Martin Schjøler (* 1974)
