Zelda Reorchestrated was a fantastic project, led by a team of enthusiastic musicians and fans of one of Nintendo's most recognised franchises. It is with regret that the team are preparing to say farewell to almost a decade of composing the series' most famous themes.

Twilight Symphony, the team's greatest achievement to date, was available for pre-order back in November as a physical 3-disc soundtrack, in which customer's received their copy of the album as promised - those who backed the Kickstarter campaign would also have received a copy of the CD too. It looks as though it may now never see a digital release, which is a shame.

On the site's farewell post, Eric Buchholz - who has also worked on Radio Hyrule - began by issuing the Zelda Reorchestrated mission statement:

Our mission statement has always been: "At Zelda Reorchestrated, we are committed to lush symphonic performances of the greatest songs from The Legend of Zelda as they would have sounded from the warm halls and intimate expression of a live philharmonic. We do not seek profit or fame. We simply love Zelda and wish to share its inspiration on all of us with all of you.

It's also worth noting that Twilight Symphony went on to inspire another group of devout Pokémon fans to bring forward their own music, Pokémon Reorchestrated: Kanto Symphony.

The Zelda Reorchestrated website will shut down as of the 12th June 2013, and we'd like to wish all involved the best of luck in the future in whatever new adventure awaits them.
