​Music from Zelda, WoW, Assassin's Creed and Pokémon conducted by maestros of the present and future.

The award-winning Irish conductor and composer Eímear Noone is known for her work in film and gaming music, with titles such as World of Warcraft and The Legend of Zelda on her resumé.

On the programme this evening are gaming music and visual installations that will take your breath away. The music is from several of the world's most popular games, and Grieghallen is bathed in video mapping performed by light and video artist Philipp Geist. On the podium with Noone stand four of the greatest conductor talents in Norway.

Guro Haugli, Daniel Reith, Hannah Andresen and Aage Richard Meyer are all participants in Dirigentforum (Conductor Forum), a talent development program where young conductors learn from the best. They have worked with Noone throughout the spring and lead the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra through magnificent works and playful melodies written by living composers for gaming series such as World of Warcraft, Halo and Assassin's Creed, as well as classics such as Tetris, Pokémon and Super Mario.

The whole experience is filmed for a documentary that will be shown on NRK this autumn.
