Chrono Trigger Piano Arrangements, by Zohar

A few weeks ago, I came across a very talented pianist who goes by zohar002 on YouTube. I was blown away by his Chrono Trigger piano works; his arrangements are rich, elaborate and creative interpretations that maintain the essence of the original melodies. For anyone who’s heard of the Final Fantasy Piano Collections, I think these arrangements are worthy of their own “Chrono Trigger Piano Collection.”

If you’re interested in some challenging but beautiful Chrono Trigger piano arrangements, I encourage you to check them out here (for both sheet music and MP3s): fffa123jp's Yahoo! Briefcase

In “Corridors of Time,” Zohar somehow manages to juggle all of the instrumental melodies between two hands, giving an epic touch to the bittersweet nostalgia of the original.

In “Secret of the Forest,” his delicate touch and embellishments evoke the sleepy mystery of Guardia Forest.

  5. Oddly enough, I became interested in playing Chrono Trigger after hearing "Corridors of Time" from the soundtrack. It's now my absolute favorite video game tune. :)

  6. I love Chrono Trigger.
    As if the game wasn't good enough, the music in the game is remarkable.

    People go out of their way just to show that by giving their own spins and twist of the music.

    awesome pianist...it just keeps bringing back the memorys...

  8. The way you play the piano just makes me envy and appreciate you. I am grateful that you added some tweaks to the original piano sheets of the piece.

    Thank you for bringing my memories of my elementary years of playing Chrono Trigger. I would appreciate it if you do another piece of Chrono Cross. :)
