I love the TSO ever since I first heard their Christmas CD years ago. I've seen them several times in concert and they put on a fabulous show. This CD is just as good. If you like classical music with a rock twist you will love this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, Enchanting Story August 15, 2013
By Clare
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I have been a Trans-Siberian Orchestra fan for quite a while now, and have always enjoyed their Christmas music (as well as their non-holiday album, Night Castle). My aunt performed as a singer with the group until a few years ago, and I loved going to watch their concert every year. My favorite part was always the narrative half of the show, which was when they would alternate between a song and a narrator telling the part of the story that each song belonged to. It was similar to a musical, in a sense. Eventually I began to appreciate the connection that TSO's rock opera style had to traditional classical music; many of their songs pay tribute to such brilliant masters as Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and of course, Ludwig von Beethoven. I noted the Beethoven-inspired song "Moonlight and Madness" on Night Castle especially, and I recognized the similarity because the composer's "Moonlight" sonata is one of my favorite pieces to listen to.
Somehow, I didn't discover Beethoven's Last Night, Trans-Siberian Orchestra's first non-Christmas album, until recently. I listened to some of the songs on YouTube, and then decided to buy this mp3 deluxe version, which came out in 2012 (twelve years after the original album release). This new edition contains not only the songs, but also the narration that would precede each track in a concert performance.
This album completely lived up to my expectations, which are set pretty high based on my previous experience with TSO music. The music draws inspiration from the music of the ingenious (though deaf) composer, such songs as "Fur Elise" the Sixth Symphony, and his "Moonlight" sonata.

Love the inclusion of the narration tracks. Even though you can't see the show while you're listening to this album, your imagination can certainly go there. I highly recommend this to any TSO fan, and if you like an off beat group, an off beat style and off beat Christmas music, definitely do TSO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Rock-Opera December 2, 2012
By Fionan
Format:MP3 Music
This was my first album of TSO, before all of their Christmas music came out.
The music and the singing are very well done and it has a good story about the conflict between Beethoven and the Devil over Beethoven's soul and legacy.
It possesses all of the polish you expect from their Christmas story albums.

There is entirely too much talking and not enough music, causing me to discontinue listening to it which is unfortunate.

5.0 out of 5 stars TSO Rocks May 28, 2013

Wow! That's all I can say. Wow! I vaguely remembered TSO, but had no idea how great they are. Happened to attend a concert by the South Jersey Pops (http://www.southjerseypops.org/) where they performed their version of Requiem (The Fifth). I researched and found this fabulous rock opera.

I really do like this musical telling the fictitious story of Beethoven's last night. I'd like to see it performed as a Broadway musical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! April 12, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The story, the music and the way it's presented make this another TSO classic to be. This is a like a Rock Opera w/out singing but just great classical music modernized in a rockish, pop style tone. Strongly recommend for TSO fans.

Enjoy the narration on this. It explains the story more than just listening to the good music. Of course, I like TSO anyway.
