TARJA TURUNEN TO RELEASE CLASSICAL SOLO DEBUT “AVE MARIA – EN PLEIN AIR” ON SEPTEMBER 11th, 2015
This September sees the release of Tarja Turunen’s classical solo debut “Ave Maria – En Plein Air.”
Ave Maria is a traditional prayer dedicated to the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, asking for her intercession. It has been set to music in over 4000 songs, some of which kept the original prayer as words while others used a different text than the traditional one.
Tarja Turunen breathes life into some of the most loved and rare songs of Paolo Tosti, David Popper, Astor Piazzolla, and of course Johann Sebastian Bach/Charles Gounod, among others. The closing track of the album presents a magnificent composition by Tarja Turunen herself.
Recorded in the stunning Lakeuden Risti Church in Seinäjoki, Finland – a snow-white landmark, both national heritage and significant example of modern Finnish architecture designed by famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto – the Lutheran church offers the perfect soundscape for Tarja Turunen’s crisp clear voice. Combined with a piercing organ, cello and harp, the music blends into a rich sound universe.
Will be released as Limited Super Audio CD, Vinyl and Download.

In Luna Park Ride you could find fliers with Christmas tourdates in Germany.
Much to our regret, we have to announce that Tarja Turunen and Mike Terrana will not perform together, as originally scheduled, on the Beauty and The Beat concert tour in Russia this year.
Ongoing differences between both parts will hopefully be settled very soon and each one of them will continue their own creative path.
Tarja has new website about coming DVD Luna Park Ride! You can find there release dates, links to pre-order, video of Never Enough and photos from the concert in Luna Park.
