The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD is an album of rearranged musical scores from throughout the Legend of Zelda series, recorded by a live symphony orchestra. It was released in conjunction with a special edition version of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as part of the The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary celebrations.
We’ve taken the greatest melodies from The Legend of Zelda series and had them performed by a wonderfully powerful orchestra. The music delivers an even greater impact when played this way, and I hope that will lift the hearts of the listeners.
— Koji Kondo, Music Supervisor of the CD and chief composer of the series
