Mipha's theme (arrangement for two violins)

For String Duet

Uploaded on Jul 19, 2019

2017 was a spectacular year for video games, and game soundtracks in particular. In March alone we had Breath of the Wild, Horizon Zero Dawn, and NieR Automata — each by itself sufficient to wipe the floor with everything released in the ten years prior. Then Persona 5 would follow. Then Super Mario Odyssey. All in the same year. What a treat.

I've featured some music from NieR already, high time to catch up on Zelda. And no way am I starting with anything but this piece. Poor Mipha.

Arranged for two violins in the original key. Suitable for complete beginners in their first year, playing solo or in duet, with or without a teacher. Playable entirely in first position.

Much has been said about Manaka Kataoka and Yasuaki Iwata's mad skillz, so for once I won't use this space to gush over technicalities.

If you're looking for excellent in-depth analysis, check out the YouTube channel by the name "8-Bit Music Theory". I recommend starting with their video on the main BotW theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6YaK8bOvWY

Or check out Mark Brown's video for a good general overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FWVKu1gnWs

The original piano arrangement of the piece at hand as it appears in the game can be heard at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC84xDccaos

Happy practicing.
