Are these credits from the booklet or are they just educated guesses? It's hard to imagine Kondo was so involved with the score. Seems more like credits for cues composed by Kondo in the past. And wasn't Orchestra Piece #2 by Mahito Yokota?

Yes, Kondo is credited on this CD where his original music has been used. What we have confirmed from an interview is that he only wrote one song for Twilight Princess, which I think is the BGM for the very first scene in the game, in Ordon's Spring (I have it here called "Opening Demo".)

Oh, thanks. I missed this somehow.

These are all interviews I could find on composition duties in the game:

Either he's not aware that "Teaser Music #1" made it into the game (not "Teaser Music #2") or the CD's credits are wrong.

We then recorded each of the three orchestrations with famed conductor Yasuzo Takemoto on hand, who you might know as the conductor who stood command over the amazing 2002 Smash Bros. concert in Japan. I did have a chance to personally conduct when we recorded a chorus for one possible version of the trailer. Though I’d studied music, I hadn’t studied classical music, so I’d never used a conductor’s baton before (outside of the one in The Wind Waker, that is!), and it was incredibly fun.
Here he says there were three composers, each of whom composed a piece of teaser music. Also directly contradicts the CD's credits. This also confirms there is a "Teaser Music #3" which was never released.

Sounds like he did most of the character themes and motifs...

...and generally most of the non-cutscene stuff.

This talks about the shop theme in all its variations.

Asuka Ohta probably did cutscene work. Koji Kondo mostly just sat there and nodded in approval.


Edit for RBMNintendoGamer's finds:

Talking about "Hyrule Field (Main Theme)" as per the video captions.

Talking about other tracks and the overall soundtrack as per the video captions.

Talking about "Midna's Lament" as per the video captions.

Talking about other tracks and the overall soundtrack as per the video captions. Further confirms his involvement with the battle music.

Talking about other tracks and the overall soundtrack as per the video captions. Corroborates her involvement with the cutscene music and her minimal work on the game. Doesn't confirm which piece she is talking about though. Could be the scene where Zelda sacrifices herself for Midna, or where the Mirror of Twilight is repaired. The most likely candidate are cutscenes before, during or after the final battle, however, what with Ohta being credited for Zelda's theme.

It's also worth noting that Nintendo recently uploaded videos to YouTube featuring Hyrule Field Theme and Midna's Lament with commentary from the composers. There are a couple of quotes that seem interesting:

We are still far from a complete breakdown but I guess this and the CD credits can give a few pointers on everything. Ohta's role in the soundtrack was apparently small.

Great find! Transcribed all the comments and added them to my earlier post.

Probably not as it's the same as the Palace of Twilight BGM and all dungeon music is confirmed to be done by Minegishi. Tried to narrow it down a bit in my post above.

In interest of thorough pedantry, the one of many Gracenote details I used had the Composer fields filled in Japanese, but even within the Koji+Toru one, there was discrepancy on whose name was given first. I don't know if I've been able to see CD-Text in the "-USA" printing or not (maybe it's just more drawn-from-online-databases foolery), so is there any embedded order of prominence in this or other printings?

So he did City in the Sky (Celestia), right? It's a uniquely beautiful, mysterious, unsettling piece. My favorite from the soundtrack.

02. Koji Kondo, Mahito Yokota
So does this mean Kondo is being credited for the Zelda's Lullaby part and Yokota wrote the new theme and the whole thing was then arranged by Oshima?
