Europa Universalis IV Classes Up the Joint With New Orchestral Trailer
NEW YORK – June 20, 2013 – Grand strategy deserves a grand score and the internationally renowned Brandenburg State Orchestra is here to assist Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio in kicking off the countdown to the release of Europa Universalis IV with a majestic performance of “The Voyage,” the main theme for the upcoming empire-building game.

Composed by Paradox’s own Andreas Waldetoft, “The Voyage” evokes the winds and ambitions that guided those explorers and traders who opened the world to Europe and joined the hemispheres. Soft strings and woodwinds slowly give way to triumphant brass and percussion – a fine omen of the conquests that await you in Europa Universalis IV.

“The Voyage” is performed by the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester at the Carl Philipp Emanuel bach Konzerthalle, and is orchestrated by Grammy nominated conductor Bernd Ruf. This particular performance of “The Voyage” and the in-game version are one and the same.

“The Voyage” is available as a free download for a limited time, allowing you to take the fervor of global domination with you on your own daily expeditions (or just a commute). Download aspiration, in MP3 form, here:
