For today we have a gorgeous string quartet rendition of "Revealed Truth" from FFX, arranged by sschafi1 (Sean Schafianski) & performed by Triforce Quartet; Sean writes:

"As featured on the album SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X by the Materia Collective! Performed by the widely renowned Triforce Quartet. I had a lot of fun arranging this, combining the original source material with a little bit of minimalistic flair.

The beginning follows the original exactly as an "exposition" and then goes on to the development section as per musical form. Nothing too showy or intense here, just simple, beautiful string lines. Huge thanks to Triforce Quartet for doing such an amazing job with this. I'm really happy with the result! Enjoy!"

  • Christopher Ferrara - First Violin
  • Jacob Roege - Second Violin
  • Stanlely Beckwith - Viola
  • Chad Schwartz - Cello

Performances resonate with expression, the arrangement gives each note breathing room, and the resulting production is rather sublime; not THAT much more to say, as Gario observes:

"Pretty hard to fault this one. The recording is crisp, the performances are perfect, and the arrangement does precisely as intended - simple, yet emotive.

... Yeah, it's quite good. Very, very good. Great work, y'all."

What he said; there's a beautiful restraint to this writing & its performance that keeps the phrasing simple while still saying quite a bit in each moment. The melodies are lovely as ever, and this treatment brings that out in a striking, immediate fashion. Great stuff; check out SPIRA for more!

So classy. I'd love to see some of Materia Collective's work put on CD someday since I'm not a big fan of paying for non-physical media.
