Eagle Rock have set a February 12th release date for Tarja Turunen & Harus In Concert - Live At Sibelius Hall on CD, Digital Audio, and Blu-ray/CD.
We were sent these details: This is the first official release from Tarja's new project Harus. Turunen achieved worldwide recognition as the frontwoman of 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's enchanting 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.
