Alfred Releases New Trans-Siberian Orchestra Songbook: Beethoven's Last Night

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922 and the exclusive print publisher of thousands of popular artists, is excited to add to its collection of Trans-Siberian Orchestra sheet music with Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Beethoven’s Last Night—the album-matching songbook arranged for piano and voice, including chords for guitar.

Beethoven’s Last Night is a concept album about a fictional story of Ludwig van Beethoven’s last night alive, during which he meets the spirit Fate, her son Twist, and the devil Mephistopheles. He is thrust into deciding between his own life, or saving his final and greatest musical achievement, his Tenth Symphony, from disappearing from the world. Selections from the album are often performed as part of the hugely successful Trans-Siberian Orchestra national tours.

This songbook features all 22 powerful and emotional classical/rock opera songs about which Trans-Siberian Orchestra fans rave, as well as an 11-page, detailed summary and script of the album and several pages of beautiful artwork.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Beethoven’s Last Night piano and vocal songbook is now available for $24.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at alfred.com.
