'Banjo-Kazooie Symphony' comes hot on the heels of the Synthetic Orchestra's well-received 'Super Metroid Symphony' album released in March. As with the previous album, 'Banjo-Kazooie Symphony' is set to offer 30 tracks totalling over an hour of orchestral music. Banjo-Kazooie's original composer, Grant Kirkhope said: " It never ceases to amaze me how many people still listen to the music from the Banjo games after all these years, it really is very humbling. I have to say that I'm really honoured that Blake has taken the time and effort to take those old rough sounding tunes and turn them into something that I think is fantastic... I hope you'll all agree".
