"Midna's Fi-nale / A Speedrunner's Tale" is a live symphonic improvisation played on a pipe organ, dedicated to U.S. speedrunner Gymnast86 and TLoZ TP/SS speedrunning.
Since I already practiced on a few themes of it in my "Zelda TP & OoT Symphonic Impro Blooper" session (available at http://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/music/31905
), this piece is merely the follow-up version where I got most things "correct" in comparison to the practice sessions.
The improvisation starts off with the most prominent phrases of "Midna's Lament" from TLoZ TP, but soon "smuggles" in another famous theme from TLoZ SS, called "Fi's Theme". These have proven to be quite compatible for that kind of mash-up, so the way was paved to use them in different contexts, up to the great tutti finale of the piece.
For those who own a 7.1 surround system, an 8-channel FLAC file can be picked up here to get an impression of what it will sound like in my living room:
