TUOMAS HOLOPAINEN - Life And Times Of Scrooge, The (CD)

Tuomas Holopainen – the keyboardist and main songwriter of NIGHTWISH - has spent most of the year 2013 writing and producing his solo album, Tuomas Holopainen comments: "This is my longtime dream come true, 14 years in the making, And a homage to one of the best storytellers of our time, Thank you for sharing this celebration of Life & Adventure!" This 12 - chapter book tells the life story of a certain Scrooge, from his early years in the 19th century Scotland to his adventures all around the world until the 1950`s, The story contains such immense depth, detail, wit and emotional power, that the moment Tuomas read it nearly 20 years ago, it instantly became a story of profound personal interest and love for him, The initial spark of `colouring` this story with music, i.e, create a kind of "soundtrack" for the book, came to him already in 1999, and has ever since been haunting the back of his mind, Featuring the London Orchestra & "The Metro Voices" (choir from London) and the lead vocalists: Alan Reid, Johanna Kurkela, Johanna Iivanainen & Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Other guest appearances include Troy Donockley (uilleann pipes, low whistles, bodhran), Mikko Iivanainen (guitars & banjo), Teho Majamäki (Didgeridoo), Jon Burr (Harmonica) and Dermot Crehan in the solo violin.
