A New World III includes new, official, and exclusive arrangements of supreme musical selections from throughout the series! It begins with the beloved new classic “Valse di Fantastica” from FINAL FANTASY XV by the inimitable Yoko Shimomura and continues with Masashi Hamauzu’s resplendent “Besaid” from FINAL FANTASY X! It includes TWO electrifying performances from FINAL FANTASY XIV: SHADOWBRINGERS: “Insatiable” and “Sands of Amber,” both composed by Masayoshi Soken. Of course, the father of FINAL FANTASY music, Nobuo Uematsu, is duly represented with shimmering performances of “Lenna’s Theme” from FINAL FANTASY V, “Land of the Dwarves” from FINAL FANTASY IV, and “Find Your Way” from FINAL FANTASY VIII. Also, there are transcendent performances of Naoshi Mizuta’s “Heavens Tower” from FINAL FANTASY XI and Hitoshi Sakimoto’s “Sorrow” from FINAL FANTASY XII. All these extraordinary chamber music settings were arranged and orchestrated by Arnie Roth, Eric Roth, Naoshi Mizuta, Shiro Hamaguchi, and Chris Opperman. 

A New World III documents a radiant collection of performances by The New World Players at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Washington, USA, including special live bonus tracks from Saturday night!
