Available for a limited time only, when it's gone it's gone! No re-ups.

This year on May 31th, the themepark Efteling Netherlands will celebrate it's 65th anniversary.
Composer René Merkelbach created a complete new background score for the park.
This is the original expanded promo (with additional tracks 3 and 8 by me), all only available in MP3 320kbs.
It's easy to download, no "please send me a link" stuff...Only thing I ask in return is your opinion about the music and a little thanks :)

You're right, in my opinion... the OST from 2005 to 2017 sounds very good (I own a few of the signed limited edition release of 1000 pieces).
Close friend, composer Maarten Hartveldt did a very good job on that timeline (due to respect, I don't upload his work) It's also available on I tunes.
René Merkelbach created a basic theme (started with the morning symphony for the watershow Aquanura (track 8), and created different versions that blend into the enviorment themed to sections of the park. I also like his work on this score... Ruigrijk is my favorite :) A heroic take on the main theme.

(Mat)Themes it's nice to see you around these parts with more efteling greatness. René Merkelbach is the John Williams of theme park music- the whole thing reminds me of the score to Home Alone meets Jurassic Park.

Thank you VanishingBishop! There is so much Efteling soundtrack stuff floating around. But these are more the bootlegs, recordings and promo's.
I think it's very nice for people overseas, to hear this music. That's the reason why I also share this :)

Yes, there is some influence of Williams there... Marerijk is a track that has a lot of filmscore in there...

Thank you very much, never had heard of the park or the composer. Very pretty!

PS - Aquanura Morning Symphony is my fave :)

Thanks a lot for this share, i love theme park stuff. Having listened a lot to the former area music by Mr. Hartveldt, i think his more "classical" sound fitted the park very well. The new score by Mr. Merkelbach has more "film score" flavour to it, but it´s beautfully orchestrated and will give the areas a new magical "feel". I really appreciate the use of a real orchestra, Efteling with its beautiful landscaping needs natural instruments (the track "promenade" with its sampled sounds was the only one that didn´t fit IMHO when i visited the park about two months ago).

BTW, is there a recording of the pre-show music of Aquanura, that has the dream-like soundscapes and harp and strings playing short fragments of the main show melodies? Would really appreciate that! Thanks again for this share!

This is absolutely fantastic -- thank you for sharing. So the "Morning Symphony" is only available in 128 kbps?

OK, have been listening to this A LOT since it was shared here. I'm completely hooked. So how long do we have to wait for Symbolica music to be released? Apparently Merkelbach's Symbolica score was recorded at the same time as these tracks. Hoping for an official release soon.

Working on it ;) Official opening is tomorrow, but there are some tracks released for the press...
Will leak tomorrow. You can listen to the 3 tracks on Youtube (3 different tours in Symbolica) on Efteling Youtube channel.

It is a shame that nothing more from Symbolica has surfaced, and there is still no word of any kind of official release. Disappointing.

3 official cues, the other 3 are just the 3 different ride tracks from the youtube channel.

I know someone who has the following three additional cues that he says are "official" but won't share them:

Botanicum 1:25
Panorama Salon 1:25
Verborgen Fantasie Depot 1:26

He can say a lot, these tracks are not official. Those are ripped from the official Efteling Youtube channel (ride video) by a themepark fan called MRBeulars.
The official press USB stick contains only 3 MP3's as a music file ;)

There is a new Efteling cd with a ride-through mix of Symbolica. Does anyone have it? Unfortunately not available yet as a digital download. Cheers
