To celebrate his 70th birthday in October this year, André Rieu, the King of Waltz and one of the most famous violinists of our time, presents his first ever greatest hits collection.
This 2CD extravaganza includes André’s greatest hits, waltzes, operas, musical and movie themes, 20th century defining songs and the song “Happy Birthday” (previously only released (physically) in Australia).
If one were to name a truly ‘universal’ musician among us, André Rieu’s name would surely be among that pantheon. Most associated with the hedonistic era of the waltz, his own tastes range widely, from chamber music to pop, and with his Johann Strauss Orchestra he has probably done more than any other musician in our century to share his joy of music with the world at large. “ – Cyrus Meher-Homji, OAM
