Featuring Breath of Fire 2 and several classic dance styles.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
we still have some time to bridge until the next Final Fantasy month, so let's see what I have in my songchest...
How about the song "Fly Pudding" from Breath of Fire 2 (1994)? The one that plays in the frog kingdom that is the hometown of teammate/prince Jean:
Since the primary sounds like Cembalo, I assume that it alludes to baroque music. However, there are also many similar samples from the 19th century waltz era. I shall thus present samples from both eras.
For the first part I can offer the following parts:
Antonio Vivaldi: Chamber concerto for recorder, violin, oboe, bassoon & b.c. in D major (RV 94):
Johann Strauß II - "Die Österreicher op. 22" (1845):
For the second part starting at 0:09 you can find a lot of comparable samples in baroque and classic, so I'll cut it down to two:
Joseph Lanner - 4 Jahreszeiten, Sommer
Johann Sebastian Bach - Cantate BWV 214 - "Tönet, ihr Pauken! Erschallet, Trompeten!":
Also in BWV 248.
Next week? We'll see!
