Piano for Friday: Arni Village – Another World

This is “Another Arni” from Chrono Chross — yep, another video game theme. Play it. It’s a very simple piece, but I think it’s a good illustration of why Chrono Chross has the best soundtrack of any video game that I have yet heard — and why I think any I haven’t yet heard is going to have a hard time sounding even a little better. CC has some addictively pretty tunes, some delicate, some lively, some haunting. I would be happy to have one of the two overworld themes as my personal background music to life in general.

This is one of the better renditions of a CC piece that I’ve found on YouTube. In many, the melody gets lost because the pianist plays the ‘background’ harmonies too loudly. Not so, here. Go on, play it, play it.

  1. Hello there, thanks for the kind words on my playing. I just now noticed that you had embedded my video here (was looking under Statistics & Data on YouTube and it showed it). Thank you very much and I’m glad you enjoyed it, I’m also a big fan of Chrono Cross music. Have a great day! =)

  2. Thanks for the comment – glad you found my post. 🙂 I just realized that I didn’t link your youtube channel, which I try to do when I embed folks’ videos. So here it is. See you’ve posted a decent bit of Chopin; I’ll have to have a listen.
