Indeed Wehr, he is a modern day japaneese composer. His music is highly regarded. He composed and orchastrated all of the music in Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX and X. As far as im concerned, his music surpasses everything ive heard anywhere, ever. Rarely do you find music that is so full of emotion. Ive never found any music thats capable of making me feel both tranquil and exhilirated at the same time to the extent Nobuo Uematsu has done with the compositions in final fantasy.
Although maybe the storyline and the game itself enhances musical experience. Thats why i urge everybody in the world to at least play final fantasy 7 & 8, because you havent lived if you havent played it, and I mean that.
Ive already posted some of the final fantasy music somewhere in the section ages ago, i but i guess if people havent played the game it doesnt get the justice it deserves.
Also, to backup your previous comment Shubert was from Vienna too i believe.
