TSO creator, Paul O'Neill explains, "By the age of 21 Beethoven tackled Vienna, the music capital of the world. Mozart recognized him as one of the greatest piano players in the world but his world would soon crash around him. At 25 Beethoven realized he was going deaf. He could have given up on his music and life and no one would have judged him harshly but instead he went on to write some of the greatest compositions ever created. His music would bring delight, joy and compassion to billions, but he himself would never hear his last works.
With sales in excess of 8 million, Trans-Siberian Orchestra is among the most popular groups of the modern era. TSO debuted in 1996, since then, all three of the Orchestra's Holiday-themed albums have proven enduring blockbusters, returning annually to the top 10 on Billboard's "Top Chart Albums" and "Top Holiday Albums" charts.
"O'Neill's vision for TSO and how he created the "Rock Theater" art form were propelled from the stage to the television screen with the support of PBS. The PBS special titled "The Birth of Rock Theater,” features live performances from "Beethoven's Last Night" along with music from their most recent album "NightCastle," which debuted at #5 on the Billboard Charts. "The Birth of Rock Theater" is a must see for any TSO fan.Here is what other people are saying about Trans-Siberian Orchestra:
