Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

There have been three different releases of the Original Soundtracks of Final Fantasy IV, corresponding to the original release of the game, the release of Final Fantasy Chronicles and the release of the DS version of Final Fantasy IV.

Final Fantasy IV's soundtrack was the first to include amongst its body of works a Piano Collections album, a practice that became a rule of sorts for every game in the series afterward. Another arranged album, Final Fantasy IV: Celtic Moon was released as well, performed by Máire Breatnach in the style of Celtic music. Both arrangements were issued to considerable acclaim.

Final Fantasy IV: Original Sound Version is the complete soundtrack for the SNES version Final Fantasy IV, on one disc. All songs are composed and arranged by Nobuo Uematsu.

Uematsu noted that the production of the soundtrack was an arduous task, involving much trial and error. The reason stemmed from the then-recent transition phase between on the Famicom and the Super Famicom hardware.
