We are delighted to announce 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.
“Ave Maria – En Plein Air” features 12 beautiful “Ave Maria” songs by a wide variety of composers. 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.
“Ave Maria – En Plein Air” will be released as Limited Super Audio CD, Vinyl and Download on September 11th, 2015 on earMUSIC.
