Classical music has long wrestled with the problem of reaching new, younger audiences, but a solution has begun to emerge via an unexpected source: computer games.
To celebrate the influence that the games industry is having musically, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is performing a concert of music at the Royal Albert Hall in May from games spanning the Original PlayStation, PS2, PS3 and PS4. The programme will include music from The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, LittleBigPlanet and Horizon Zero Dawn, among others.
