The Wing Commander Suite based on The Fatman's Wing Commander soundtrack has again been getting a lot of play in northern Europe of late. There have been a number of concerts in Norway and Finland as recently as November that have featured the suite. These concerts are part of the same series of performances we reported on over a year ago. New dates keep cropping up for both the "We come in peace" and "Score" performances.
The suite consists of the Wing Commander main theme, then moves on into the scramble music before shifting into two versions of the combat music and finally ends with the medal ceremony theme. The "We come in peace" series, which showcases themes from a number of different science fiction properties including Star Trek and Star Wars, was performed in the cities of Oulu, Finland on November 15-16, and in Bergen, Norway on November 8-10.
The suite has also recently been spotted in the lineup of Score again, most recently at showings in Trondheim, Norway on November 29-30. Score focuses specifically on video game music and features a variety of tracks from a wide range of games including Halo, The Witcher, and Final Fantasy. Past iterations had included the Wing Commander Suite but some more recent performances had dropped it from the lineup, so it's cool to see it return to the concert's slate.
