Magic of the Waltz I was only five years old, when I heard a waltz for the first time. It was Johann Strauss' "The beautiful Blue Danube". My father, who was conductor of the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, played it as an encore in one of his concerts. Suddenly the atmosphere changed. Everyone in the audience started to smile. I saw the joy on people's faces. Even as a small boy I understood that this wonderful music had the power to make people happy - that it was magical. Every night, everywhere in the world I invite my audience to get up from their seats and dance with us. I can’t tell you how fantastic it is to see people from every continent waltz to our music, whether they’d be young or old. You will find every sentiment in a waltz. Happiness, joy, melancholy, and love. And last but not least, do you know that it is scientifically proven that waltzing is good for your health? So a waltz a day keeps the doctor away! Isn’t that magical?

Magic of the Violin (compilation) "When I was small, only five years old, my mother gave me a violin. From that moment I had only one dream: when I grew up I wanted to go on stage and play to lots of people. I wanted to make everyone in the world happy with my violin. I didn't care how long it took me to get there. And now my fans all over the world have made that little boy's dream come true. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!"
Love in Venice - Special anniversary edition! The Vrijthof concerts have been going for ten years! This anniversary was all the excuse André Rieu needed to make things extra festive and put on a fantastic, unforgettable anniversary concert. For this tenth concert series he had the Vrijthof square specially decorated in Venetian style, complete with a Doge’s Palace, Rialto Bridge, a fabulous Italian fountain and a colourful Venetian masquerade. It was a party from the start, with André and the entire Johann Strauss Orchestra riding into the Vrijthof on Vespas, in a colourful procession accompanied by the sounds of the Italian hit Azzurro, loud hooting and heart-warming applause from the whole audience. LOVE IN VENICE is an evening full of wonderful Italian music, world hits like Funiculi funicula, Tiritomba and Vieni sul mar and fabulous operatic arias. For the occasion of this anniversary, the Italian singer Rocco Granata came to sing his world hit Marina. But of course André would never forget the Viennese waltz. This time the performance of The Blue Danube was extra special, and André even came down from the stage to waltz with his oldest fan – a first in his long career! Tens of thousands of fans from all over the world enjoyed this amazing anniversary concert on the Vrijthof. Thanks to the perfect sound and image recordings on this DVD you can enjoy it at home just as though you were there yourself.

André Rieu & Friends (Maastricht VII) For me, making music means making people happy with music. When I go on stage and see all those faces before me in the concert hall, full of anticipation of what is to come, I can already feel my enjoyment of all the lovely melodies we are going to play that evening. But making music is something else as well. It is also bringing people together and giving people the opportunity to experience something together. After these evenings the audience go home with the feeling that they’ve made friends with each other. That is the enormous power of music. And that doesn’t only apply to the people in the concert hall. We, the musicians on the stage, also feel it. If you make music together, it brings you closer. You are listening to each other, responding to each other and you are trying to get the very best from yourself and the others too. Honestly, for me there is nothing more beautiful in life than making music with and for friends! This evening in Maastricht with ‘friends’ from all over the world, both on stage and in front of us on the square, was one of the most beautiful I have ever experienced. With love, André
Rieu Royale - André Rieu Coronation Concert Live in Amsterdam "The most beautiful day of my musical career and the crowning glory of my work!” This is how André Rieu himself describes the concert he gave in Amsterdam with his Johann Strauss Orchestra to close the festivities around a historic event: the investiture of King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima. In front of an audience of tens of thousands of cheering people, he gave a Coronation Concert on 30 April 2013 on Museum Square in Amsterdam. For anyone who was not able to get to Amsterdam on that day, the live recording of this festive concert offers you the chance of feeling you were there. A unique concert, naturally with the Coronation Waltz that André Rieu wrote especially for the occasion, fabulous images of the new King and Queen, the formal investiture, the lovely young princesses, an emotional musical thank-you to the abdicating Queen Beatrix and an ecstatic audience who by the end no longer knew whether they were singing for the new King or for the king of the waltz.. It was one great big Orange party! As well as the Coronation Concert of over 90 minutes, the DVD includes an interview with André Rieu in which he explains how he came to receive the honour of this invitation and how he looked forward to this very special day. You can see the preparations for the concert and feel yourself at André’s side as the tension rises in the run-up to the coronation concert. Finally you can see pictures of André meeting King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima at the Royal Palace. This is a unique DVD that you really cannot miss!
Live in Brazil Everyone knows the Samba is the National Dance of Brazil - but that changed in 2012 when André Rieu played his first ever concert series in Brazil's hustling and bustling commercial capital of Sao Paulo. "it's a record. A sold-out concert thirty times in one city. We are really proud of that. So many memories of people waltzing, the laughter, the tears of the Brazilians. We will never forget all that." And it's one of Andre many talents that he always finds the right mix between classics and hidden gems of his genre like "Nessun Dorma", his signature tune "The Beautiful Blue Danube" or "Ballad For Adeline" while tapping into the rich tradition of local repertoire. For "Live In Brazil" that ranges from "Manha de Carnaval" to the 2012 global smash "Ai Seu Te Pego" keeping the audience off their seats and dancing in the aisles for long stretches of the 90 minutes of the show.
