The magic of Andre Rieu
André Rieu breathes magic into the world of classical music with his new 3-CD box set, exclusive to Australia.
From best-loved hits from the silver screen including Titanic, The Godfather, Romeo and Juliet and The Sound of Music, through the most beloved and epic melodies, the 54 track collection highlights his vast repertoire.
Central to everything that André Rieu does is the violin. Just as Johann Strauss II did in the 19th century, Rieu leads his concerts from the violin. You could say it is the soul to his music-making and this collection offers some of the most lush and romantic music ever written.
Featuring themes and tunes from some of the greatest movies, musicals, pop singers and his adored Maastricht concerts including 'What A Wonderful World' by Louis Armstrong, 'I Could Have Danced All Night' from My Fair Lady, 'Someday My Prince Will Come' from Snow White, 'You Raise Me Up', 'Lips Are Sealed' and the Radetzky March.
What do you find magical about classical music?
