Symphonic Tale: The Place I Truly Belong (Music from Stardew Valley)

Purchase Page



There will come a day when you feel crushed by the burden of modern life,
and your bright spirit will fade before a growing emptiness.
When that happens, my dear, you’ll be ready for this gift.

Story of “Stardew Valley”

 Because you are exhausted by your job and the pace of life in the city, you decide to move to an old farmhouse near Pelican Town in Stardew Valley that you have inherited from your grandfather. Once there, amidst the rich and sometimes magical nature that surrounds you, you start a new life in the rural countryside that you now share with your neighbors in the Valley.  Now, the gentle passing of the seasons is the new pace of your life.


Messages from Creators

 When VGM Classics approached me about doing a Stardew Valley orchestral album, I was immediately enamored with the idea. The thought of hearing the soundtrack to my little game played by a world-class orchestra was very exciting. When I heard the result, I was blown away. Mr. Kentaro Sato's arrangements bring a new depth to the music and carry it to a place I had never imagined before. Most important, each arrangement is filled with heart and soul, and with the magic of Stardew Valley. I hope that you enjoy this album as much as I do! (Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, Creator)

 There are creative works that sincerely communicate the values and wishes of their authors. Stardew Valley is such a work. I hope that this music reminds you of the scenes and scents of nature, the touch of the wind, and the things that you cherish most. (Kentaro Sato, Arranger & Conductor)
