Video game music

It might’ve been on TV or at the music school, where they would’ve said this much more famous song is evoking a similar feeling or was inspired by it:

Also pinging @Sushi in case it’s not popular in Belgium, because this is top quality entertainment.

I heard that song on the radio a few weeks ago, actually.
So not super popular (anymore), but certainly known and acknowledged over here.

What a coincidence: those set pieces in the video look like Tetris’ tetrominoes!

I knew it too, there’s the game “piano tiles” that features classical songs, and one of them is Korobeiniki.

Claudio Monteverdi
from the Seventh Book of Madrigals
“Tirsi e Clori”
Venice, 1619.

Used in the game Four Last Things.
Here a clip with a hook to the fifth and most famous stanza.

Text and english translation

Tirsi e Clori
Già, Clori gentile,
noi siam ne la schiera:
con dolce maniera
seguiamo il lor stile.
Balliamo, ed intanto
spieghiamo col canto,
con dolci bei modi,
del ballo le lodi.

Thyrsis & Cloris:
Yet, gentle Cloris,
we are amidst the throng
with sweet demeanour
we follow their ways.
Let us dance and meanwhile
expound with our singing
in sweet, fair tones,
the praises of the dance.
