The music is very enjoyable anyway.

But the title screen says "Licensed from Naxos Japan".

I lean towards it being some kind of mix of samples of real recordings and synth stuff. Maybe to make the game work a bit more smoothly? Some of the sections sound virtually indistinguishable from the real thing, but other parts and little bits like when they do the tempo changes suddenly get a lot more artificial. But since Square don't have a forum presence, unless someone spots an interview with the team behind this I guess we'll never know for sure...

Hey EightRooks - just wondering whether you finished the game, and if you did, about how long did it take you to complete (and unlock the remaining 17 songs)?

Playing through higher levels and the challenge looks very well balanced!

...in line with the new pricing policy of Square Enix but It's worth every single penny!

Well, I caved in and unlocked the game. My son and I are each playing the game (different iPads) and he likes it a lot, too.

Now, here's a question, has anyone noticed that on the music screen where you can select the pieces to play, there's some small gray text at the very bottom of each music piece? It's really hard to read because it is fine print colored gray on the red background. I thought it was some licensing credit, but instead, it's the opening lyric from Louis Armstrong's, "What a Wonderful World"!
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and for you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
I'm wondering what that's about?!

Are the bonus compositions added in the latest update worth the price?

It depends. If you like them, definitely. You get 4 compositions for each, but no story elements, however if you like playing in Concert mode, you will probably enjoy these too. 4.49 euro for 4 songs cost as much as any music in the iTunes store, so it is a fair price I think. Check the music beforehand if you are not sure, but I think these made great additions (still missing Rachmaninoff though ).

Music Pack 1
- The Mastersingers of Nuremberg (Wagner)
- 21 Hungarian Dances, WoO 1 No. 5 in G minor (Brahms)
- The Stars and Stripes Forever (Sousa)
- Pictures at an Exhibition: X. The Great Gate of Kiev (Mussorgsky)

Music Pack 2
- Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, Op. 23 (Tchaikovsky)
- Light Cavalry (Suppe)
- Prince Igor: Polovtsian Dances (Borodin)
- Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550 (Mozart)
