Looks really, really fantastic to me. I heard that all arrangements were done by "Imagine", including Shiro Hamaguchi.

My impressions of the live concert have been posted to my blog on Capcom Unity:

Re: Monster Hunter concert announced

I like this part, that at any VGM event there's the potential to see any other number of vgm stars also attending smile

"A sign of the lofty stature of Monster Hunter music in Japan was reflected by the large number of game composers seated in the audience for the orchestral concert. Seated next to each other in the mezzanine were Yasunori Mitsuda and Yoshie Miyajima of Procyon Studio. Not far away was Hideki Sakamoto, the representative director of Noisycroak. Behind them were seated Masahiro Sakurai, Kenji Ito and Yoko Shimomura.

The rapt attention of these composers as they ingested and analyzed the orchestral performance was among the most memorable sights of the evening. The intense concentration on their faces as they scrutinized every detail of the composition, arrangement and performance was unforgettable."

Re: Monster Hunter concert announced

The picture of Yuko Komiyama is welcomed. Did you happen to get any of Akihiko Narita, who I suspect will become an increasingly major name in the future?

I was surprised that Masato Kouda wasn't confirmed to be a composer of Monster Hunter 3 by the FILMharmonic. I'd like him to return, but recent scores for the series show Capcom's in-house team are more than capable regardless!
