Breath of Fire IV Original Soundtrack
BoFIVOST
Information
Type: Soundtrack
Released: 24/05/2000
Composer(s): Yoshino Aoki


The original soundtrack to Breath of Fire IV Original Soundtrack was composed solely by Yoshino Aoki, who had previously worked with Akari Kaida on the music to Breath of Fire III.

Influences[]

While the previous game was largely influenced by jazz and lounge music, Breath of Fire IV's soundtrack would return to the series' classical roots, with songs resembling traditional Japanese and Chinese folk music. It is also the first Breath of Fire series soundtrack to contain all the music from a game, instead of selected tracks. The game features a song composed by Japanese New Age artist Taro Iwashiro for the opening sequence, as well as a public domain piano piece originally composed by Maurice Ravel titled "Pavane for a Dead Princess" ("Pavane pour une infante défunte"). Breath of Fire IVs ending theme, "Yume no Sukoshi Ato" (A Little After the Dream), was performed by Aoki herself, along with pianist Ryoji. Along with all other Breath of Fire series background audio, the music of Breath of Fire IV was later re-issued as part of the eleven-disc Breath of Fire Original Soundtrack Special Box in March 2006.

Release[]

the Breath of Fire IV Original Soundtrack was commercially released exclusively in Japan on May 24, 2000.

Reception[]

Industry publications largely held the soundtrack to be a marked improvement over the previous game's score.
