Tarja Turunen Releasing Dynamic and Diverse Solo album

(Prog) Former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen is to release an album featuring her take on music from artists as diverse as Queen and Mozart. The singer has teamed up with long-time collaborator Mike Terrana, who plays drums on the album to be called Beauty And The Beat.

Released in May, the record comes on the back of the duo's 2013 world tour of the songs. It includes interpretations of classical music pieces from Bach, Mozart and Rossini as well as rock classics from Queen, Led Zeppelin and Turunen's own work.

The recordings feature an orchestra and choir with more than 100 musicians involved. Turunen says: "The idea of having a symphonic orchestra, a choir and Mr Terrana on drums was originally mine. Mike has done a recording with drums over classical pieces that I think is great. I immediately imagined it performed live on a stage with a real orchestra as a part of a bigger concept." more on this story
