LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Friday, January 06, 2012

After decades of anticipation, Alfred Music Publishing is proud to release officially licensed collectible sheet music companion folios to the iconic Nintendo® video game series Super Mario Bros.TM and The Legend of ZeldaTM, in editions arranged for Easy Piano, Intermediate-Advanced Piano Solos, and Solo Guitar.

The collectible Super Mario Bros.TM and The Legend of ZeldaTM sheet music collections each feature over 30 arrangements of the most instantly recognizable melodies beloved by generations of gamers around the globe. From Koji Kondo's iconic “Super Mario Bros.TM Ground Background Music” and “The Legend of ZeldaTM Main Theme” to The Legend of ZeldaTM: Spirit Tracks themes and New Super Mario Bros.TM WiiTM themes, the iconic pieces in the book series represent two and a half decades of Nintendo® video game favorites.

The Easy Piano arrangements are simplified to make them enjoyable for novice piano players, whereas the Intermediate-Advanced Piano Solos book features note-for-note transcriptions for solo piano performance. The Solo Guitar performance book is arranged in easy guitar keys at the easy-intermediate level, with full notation and TAB. All pieces in the series are suitable for recitals, concerts, and solo performances. Adding to the fun, graphics from the corresponding games grace each page of the sheet music.

Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros.TM is one of the best-selling video games of all time, with more than 40 million copies sold worldwide—second to its sister video game title, The Legend of ZeldaTM which boasts well over 52 million copies sold to date—and ported to all major Nintendo gaming consoles. The Super Mario Bros.TM theme, by world-renowned video game composer Koji Kondo, is arguably one of the most identifiable tunes in the world and considered a representation for video game music in general.

Super Mario Bros.TM and The Legend of ZeldaTM in Easy Piano, Intermediate-Advanced Piano Solos, and Solo Guitar TAB editions are now available at music retail stores and at alfred.com/Nintendo.
