The Hyrule Castle theme is one of the most recognizable themes in the Zelda franchise. It has been included in many games and while always having that similar sound, each of them is slightly different. In my opinion, the one that sounds the most different came from the latest Zelda installment, Breath of the Wild. While it isn’t my favorite Hyrule Castle theme, it is definitely near the top. It helps create an atmosphere that just feels appropriate with your surroundings. It lets you know that you are nearing the end of the game and about to take on the final boss.
Youtuber Melody Geeks has taken this theme and produced a piano orchestra cover for it. It features sounds from a piano (duh!), flute, guitar, violin, and others. I love the background they used for the video, which is a beautiful city at night. Lastly, how about that Triforce Lamp on the piano?! I love that small addition.
