The Evolution of Video Game Music

Excellent story yesterday from NPR's All Things Considered.
In May 2004, a composer named Nobuo Uematsu joined the Los Angeles Philharmonic for a single performance of his most famous work. The show sold out in three days. In fact, there was almost a riot at the box office when people couldn't get tickets.

What was the music? Uematsu's soundtrack for the popular video game Final Fantasy.
I would suggest listening to the story online. About 12 minutes.
