I heard some interesting Christmast music last week and went off in search of the CD. In fact, I found many. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is the alter-ego of a rock band called Savatage. One reviewer of their music said they often contain flashes of brilliance. I would have to describe what I have heard so far as a mixture of classical and rock. Sort of like what would happen if the New York Philharmonic and Metallic collide. So, for a different (and very welcome take) on Christmas music, get one of their CDs or listen to some of their music on Amazon. I'm hooked.
