Symphonic Suite Dragon Quest VI
Sugiyama, as always, does an awesome job with this symphonic suite, which opens with the familiar Dragon Quest overture, and proceeds to the castle theme. Then comes a medley of town themes, followed by variations on the main overworld tracks. The sailing theme is simply beautiful, as is "Flying Bed." "Pegasus" is another solid track that can potentially bring tears to one's eyes, following which is a medley of dark castle and dungeon themes. Pretty much every track is solid, such as the subtle tower theme, which bears some resemblance to the main theme of The People's Court, and the suite ends on a high note with "Eternal Lullaby." Definitely recommend to fans of videogame music and classical music in general.
