On February 12, Eagle Rock Entertainment and earMusic will release Tarja Turunen & HARUS In Concert – Live At Sibelius Hall on CD, Digital Audio, and Blu-ray/CD. [Pre-book Order Date January 11, MSRP $29.98 for Blu-ray/CD, $17.98 for CD]
This is the first official release from Tarja’s new project HARUS.Turunen achieved worldwide recognition as a premiere heavy metal/hard rock vocalist as the frontwoman of multi-million selling band Nightwish, before embarking on a successful solo career. However,Tarja’s background has always been classical music. Now, showcasing the true breadth of her talent, Tarja steps away from the hard rock/heavy metal sound that made her an international star to return to her classical music roots with HARUS.
Filmed in Lahti, Finland in December 2009, In Concert presents a blend of traditional Finnish music with classical and modern elements. The fusion of organ, electric guitar, percussion, and Turunen’senchanting vocals filled Sibelius Hall that evening with an emotional, spellbinding energy. With a set that included three different versions of “Ave Maria,” this fresh approach to traditional music is an absolutely atmospheric experience.
