A week or so ago, it was announced that Shiro Sagisu, who was in charge of the music in the Evangelion TV Series, the movies and Rebuild of Evangelion, was releasing a CD(s) of some of Evangelion’s music performed by an orchestra. I noticed today that the 2 releases were up in the Evangelion Store for pre-order for 3,500 円. The expected release date is on November 26th of this year for both.
The both sets are 2 discs, one is a music CD and the other a CD-ROM containing PDF’s of the scores, and a booklet containing a performance guide and interviews. The performances in this CD include the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra, a Murata Youiti group and a Sagisu group. The Murata Youti group consists of flutes, clarinets, oboes, a full brass section, bass, vibes, and a percussion section including drums. The Sagisu group consists of a full brass section, piano, synthesizers, guitar, electric and acoustic bass, and drums. Yoko Takahashi is the guest lead vocalist.
