Once again a fantastic offering from André Rieu: two-and-a-half hours of heart-warming music and fabulous photography, all recorded in Vienna, musical capital of the world.
Together with Andre you can ride through the city in a horse-drawn 'fiacre' past all the famous palaces and monuments, and with him at your side you can enjoy all the beautiful experiences Vienna has to offer. Not least the lovely Viennese music of course.
Musical highlights include:
Frühlingsstimmen Walzer, Wiener Blut, An der schönen blauen Donau, Grüß mir mein Wien, Wien bleibt Wien, Komm mit nach Varasdin, Heut' ist der schönste Tag in meinem Leben, Ballade pour Adeline…
The DVD stars the Johann Strauss Orchestra, the Platinum Tenors, the sopranos Mirusia Louwerse and Kimmy Skota, the Vienna Debutantes and the lovely Viennese actress Barbara Wussow. She and Andre will take you behind the scenes where you can see how he produced the replica of the famous Schönbrunn Palace.
A high point of this new film is the world première of the waltz by Sir Anthony Hopkins 'And the Waltz Goes On'. Sir Anthony is deeply moved when Andre, his great hero, plays this beautiful piece. Don't miss this unique performance!
