I think this entry is a bit premature because the CD wasn't officially announced yet.

At least it's coming. Jonne Valtonen also confirmed it, and actually it seems the CD is already mixed and even mastered.

But do you know if the CD was recorded live or if it was recorded in the studio with the same arrangements of the concert, Zanasea?

That's what Valtonen said as well.

"This album has been delayed. The release date is subject to change."
Funny. There was not even an official announcement that there would be a CD release AT ALL. I totally agree with Revoc. This entry is a bit premature.

Now we have that official announcement:

Very much looking forward to the release, whenever it will be.

Amazon postponed the release date to December 31, 2010. Does that mean the release date is uncertain again?

Remember that there was no official announcement about the release date at all.

Good thing that Amazon only charges you when the item is shipped
I hope we don't see another ANIF09 here! *g*

In my email from Amazon Germany, this is what it states:

Wdr Rundfunkorchester K´┐Żln "Symphonic Fantasies"
Voraussichtliches Lieferdatum: Januar 10 2011 - Januar 14 2011

-----------------

Essentially, tentative ship date of January 10 - 14, 2011.

Confirming, also received the mail this morning.

However I think we should wait for an official announcement before beginning any kind of speculation...

Did anyone also get the notice from Amazon that the order was completly cancelled?

I, too, got that same email this morning. I don't think it was canceled completely, though. It goes against what the producers even stated. Maybe a release date is just so far out of the picture that Amazon considers it, momentarily, "canceled."

The Amazon link is a bit misleading. Any way to delete it for now?

Is there much a chance of a US release of this one? Or should I just import it from Europe?

No immediate plans, so better to import it. Cheapest through Amazon.

Order placed just now for my copy (of this as well as the Nuss album). By the way, what language are the liner notes in? German?

German, but like Symphonic Shades, I'll be publishing an officially approved translation some time.

I wouldn't if it was lossless. I suspect that because square enix released one of the versions in Japan they may release that same one through their online store at some point just as other square enix soundtracks have become available.

My copy arrived today. The album is a masterpiece - everyone with only the slightest interest in symphonic arrangements should order a copy. It's worth every (EUR) cent!

EDIT:
I added some credits, which I took directly from the booklet. I left out the individual performance credits (will add them later). I'm also not sure if my translation of the german terms Tonmeister, Toningenieure and Tontechniker are accurate. Seems like the english language doesn't differentiate between these so much...

I can't believe the encore is neither available on the physical album nor available as single download at iTunes ;__; Hope that's going to chance soon.

The encore is definitely planned but there's unfortunately just no date so far.
