The “Attack on Titan” (Shingeki no Kyojin) anime, whose first episode aired in 2013, has established itself as a cult classic worldwide. The series has already sold over 110 million copies (September 2022 figures).

Fans have finally discover the conclusion of the “Final Season”: episodes that were all the more eagerly awaited as this final season began airing in December 2020! The final episode, which was scheduled for November 4, 2023, has been on everyone’s minds for three long years: it is the highlight of Hajime Isayama’s shōnen manga.

An event that has inspired the Grissini Project, an ensemble of classical musicians specializing in music for images (music for anime, video games and films).

Currently filling theatres with their tour of Miyazaki’s most beautiful film scores, the Grissini Project is releasing a new album: “Attack on Titan: Requiem”, an orchestral production based on cult tracks from the series.

It was released on November 2 through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, offering fans exclusive rewards. 

An event album recorded in the Stockholm Philharmonic

This brand-new production was recorded in Stockholm’s Konserthuset, a legendary concert hall also known for hosting the Nobel Prize ceremony.

It is a production featuring 125 musicians and choristers around a symphonic suite for soloists, chorus, piano trio, organ and orchestra. It is entirely dedicated to the music of Hiroyuki Sawano and Linked Horizon for Shingeki no Kyojin, arranged and orchestrated by Simon Nebout.

Grissini Project: when classical music meets pop culture

“Our group testifies to a know-how that is worth keeping alive, an approach where quality takes precedence over quantity.” Romain Vaudé, founder
The Grissini Project is an ensemble of classical musicians specializing in music for images: music for anime, video games and films.

It was founded in 2010 by pianist and organist Romain Vaudé, who trained as a classical pianist at the conservatory. His vision is particularly avant-garde: the Grissini Project approaches this highly topical and dramatically under-exploited repertoire with the perspective of a classical chamber music ensemble. It dares to use hand-crafted arrangements, rigor and in-depth work on interpretation.
A hit concept!

Today, the Grissini Project is recognized the world over. In fact, it boasts over 500k subscribers and tens of millions of views on YouTube!

The group has explored the musical universes of Assassin’s Creed; Studio Ghibli’s greatest works, such as Castle in the Sky and Princess Mononoke; Kaamelott, Final Fantasy, Game of Thrones, Zelda, Requiem for a Dream...

The group is currently on tour until April 2024, playing the most beautiful music from Miyazaki’s films to packed houses.

They have already completed two other crowdfunding campaigns to complete various projects.
