2011 release from the Finnish Metal vocalist and former member of Nightwish. It's widely known that Tarja's musical background is classical music and her voice classically trained. After the enormous success with Nightwish and two gems of heavy rock solo records, Tarja goes back to her first love for a while. Tarja Turunen & Harus represents the start of a new journey, crossing genres and musical cultures. Harus is a rather peculiar, uncommon Finnish word that describes the four tensors that keep a tent together or the tensor that keeps the mast from falling in a sailing boat. Both of the meanings apply to this line up: four members, four equals, four different backgrounds to tie together exquisite classical music developed strongly and in a very stable way, with a taste of experimental, modern feel.
