I’ve been obsessed with video games since I was 8 years old. From the early days of my Dragon 32 right through to the 360, PS3 and Wii. It’s great to see the music from games finally getting the respect it deserves. What could be better than hearing these famous pieces played by the superb London Philharmonic Orchestra? I am so excited to be a part of this extraordinary event
