I feel gypped. I wasn't around when Tetris was huge on the Game Boy; so recently, I bought it for my phone, but what the heck? It only plays music on the intro to the title screen; then it stops for the rest of the game. What a scam. Oh well. I still have a blast playing it.
This is a much more 'authentic' reproduction of the theme than McVaffe's last Tetris mix: there are lot's of traditional sounds. I like how the intro transitions to the main theme with that short chromatic line. Great piece, especially for anyone that has this song engrained in their mind after hours and hours of Tetris gameplay.

Pretty decent, but I think that it would have been more solid without the modal shift that Korobeiniki included. The transitions were a little weak, and the arrangement wasn't groundbreaking, but it was definitely pleasant.

Awsome mix and definaly worth listening too.

This is so good I hunted through the internet to find where this came from, and here it is! Massive kudos to McVaffe.
My only feedback is that the piano part between 1:33 to 1:51, whilst tuney, is soft compared to the rest of the piece and seems quite out of place. I would pay to have that adjusted - no kidding. Are you still around McVaffe?
The harpsichord is such a nice touch! All of a sudden I have a hunger for Polka
Edit: I've just cross/fade edited it out, now I'm happy

I really love how this is broken into about three/four sections and how it progresses through each.
It's as if someone's starting a game of Tetris and listens to the title theme.
Then at 0:55 they actually begin a round.
At 1:52 (where the mix really begins), reality fractures and the player is at some obscure, romantisiced Eastern European village at festival time.
Then at 3:54, its time to go home.
Great mix and worth listening to.

This remix is one of the best I heard in some time. I'm a fan on baroque music and the harpsicord

It's Halloween!! Candy, ghouls, and goblins aside, today I celebrate the 5th anniversary of the posting of my favorite harpsichord-centered remix! Love it Mike!
3:23-end sounds very familiar to me. Can't place it right now, but if it's not from Tetris, I'd be willing to bet it's VG related in one way or another.

Cool stuff, but I've always wonder what, if anything, if being arranged from 3:23 until the end. Didn't hear it anywhere in the GBS or NSF sets. Pretty seamless original writing if that's in fact what it was, but I wish Mike or someone else could give more information.

Thank you for the transition at 3:30. It keeps the track alive. The instrumentation choice on this song is wonderful. Sorry if I am not giving props where they are due, but if you are the first to use the harpsichord, very original choice. Perhaps a few more bpm faster would have given the song a bit more umph. Anyway, wow, awesome, very simplistic remix. Thank you McVaffe.

for those who need a translation:
McVaffe, you are a very skilled composer, and contribute much to the video game remixing community.

I can't believe such a brilliant piece of music could be made from all the musical piece of Tetris. It truly is a gift from Russia, with its baroque tunes and folk-style backgrounds. Superb!

this one really has great style ..a classic
