At 12'36", this epic orchestral collab from Jeremy Robson & Derek Oren is quite the procession, strongly favoring elements of Romanticism in its dramatic, stirring execution. You're in for triumphant brass fanfares, dark & brooding string passages, cascading chromaticism, and a very narrative sense of progression & adventure. The artists rather succinctly write:
"Uematsu and Mahler were an influence in creating "Trauermarsch" (Cantata for Dancing IV). Made with EWQL Hollywood Strings and Hollywood Brass. The woodwinds are VSL Instruments and the percussion is Project SAM and EWQL."
The first movement from Mahler's 5th is the piece I'm most familiar with from his body of work, and I definitely hear some similarites. There's a great balance between complexity and accessibility, with intuitive melodic cues coexisting within a more complex, chromatic tapestry... that's how I'd put it, at least. There's a weight & gravitas to things that's not as common in other classical periods, almost like a type of compositional angst, but it still allows for very identifiable and memorable motifs that you can "hum in the shower" if you so choose. There's more of a focus on evoking a certain classical period here than with many other orchestral arrangements we've posted. This is something that varies from artist to artist and track to track; it's not necessarily good or bad, but it has very direct bearing on the nature of the mix, and this case it's resulted in a massive undertaking to channel the likes of Gustav Mahler, a force to be reckoned with. Derek and Jeremy have done a fantastic job exploring & executing that concept; at 12+ minutes, I can't provide a play-by-play, but the whole thing, in its totality, is really the "highlight," as it were. Substantive, fortified, regal, impressive, and enjoyable work from a talented and effective duo!
