2014 two CD live release from the former Nightwish vocalist. BEAUTY & THE BEAT is something very different than your ordinary Rock show, let alone your ordinary classic concert. It's music played in an unorthodox manner, it's the performance of a wide range of Classical pieces and Rock songs together with an orchestra and choir. It strikes you with awe. The music of BEAUTY & THE BEAT ranges from immortal classic pieces by Bach, Strauss and Mozart to Rossini, but doesn't neglect pure Rock music like songs from Led Zeppelin, Queen as well as Tarja's own pieces. All combined with orchestra and choir with more than 100 musicians on stage, an enormous sound, energetic drums and Tarja's angelic voice. She shines with her crystal clear voice and incredible stage presence; all lulled with the warm, full sound of an orchestra.
