From Final Fantasy Wiki

The Original Soundtrack of Final Fantasy VI was released in Japan and North America as two separate compilations respectively called Final Fantasy VI: Original Sound Version and Kefka's Domain - The complete soundtrack from the Final Fantasy III video game.

The last of the soundtracks to be issued for the 16-bit generation of consoles, the album was the longest recorded for said generation of games. For Uematsu, Final Fantasy VI's music marked the end of a stage in his career, which was well-grounded by then in the video game music industry.

"Final Fantasy VI was a sort of ending point for me. Not just the music, but the whole game. I thought, if I do this work for the rest of my life, how many more games will I be able to do? With the satisfaction and excitement I felt after finishing that project, I thought I had reached my primary goal, and could quit doing game music with no regrets."
—Nobuo Uematsu

Uematsu also stated that this particular soundtrack was the most challenging Final Fantasy soundtrack he has ever worked on. The music was subsequently included in two arranged compilation albums: Final Fantasy VI: Grand Finale and its respective Piano Collections album.

The Original Soundtrack of Final Fantasy VI received raving reviews, being hailed more than once as one of the best soundtracks ever composed for a video game. The game featured numerous fan favorites such as Terra's Theme and the "Aria di Mezzo Carattere".
