Here's a riddle for you: What do you get when you cross the developer of the world's most popular MMO, with an internationally renowned orchestra dedicated to playing scores from videogames?
The answer? Echoes of War.
Australia's Eminence Symphony Orchestra, which gained notoriety worldwide from its viral videos of music played at its A Night in Fantasia concerts, has teamed up with Blizzard Entertainment, creator of World of Warcraft, Diablo and StarCraft, to produce an album of rearranged orchestral music. We're talking iconic music from titles past – Diablo, Starcraft, Warcraft III and World of Warcraft, and well as orchestrations from upcoming games - Wrath of the Lich King, StarCraft II, and even Diablo III. This truly is a 'best of Blizzard' package.
