Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Night Castle Songbook Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Night Castle, the album-matching songbook to the band’s most recently released album, arranged for piano, vocal, and guitar.

Perfect for any musician who loves Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Night Castle is an ambitious, long form art rock epic that tells an engaging fantasy tale amid a musical score. Instrumental virtuosity and brilliant writing are demonstrated throughout, including plenty of pianistic music that naturally begs to be played by any fan who dabbles with the piano, even if only casually.

The complete 240-page score features spiral binding that lays flat on the piano music stand, and includes the comprehensive story text and piano sheet music for every song on the album. Complete melody lines and lyrics are included, along with basic guitar chord grids and chord symbols.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra has inspired generations of fans with their well-known elaborate and artistic rock opera albums and performances. With more than seven million albums sold, they were recently dubbed as one of the top touring artists of the past decade by Billboard magazine. Though many fans first discover the band’s music via their well-known Christmas-themed albums and concerts, these rock opera masters also produce plenty of non-seasonal works, with their latest album Night Castle as one such masterpiece. The band, also known for their extensive charity work, is currently on their Beethoven’s Last Night tour through May, 2012.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Night Castle (00-38928) is now available for $29.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com. Also available in digital format, sold separately.
