Title: Andre Rieu and His Johann Strauss Orchestra – Falling in Love – Live in Maastricht Release Date: 2016 Genre: Classical Conductor: Andre Rieu Artist: Johann Strauss Orchestra and special guests Mirusia, The Platin Tenors, Lou Bega
Is there a more beautiful feeling in life? When you fall in love your cheeks flush, your heart beats faster and your head starts spinning… but you are as happy as one can be. Like they say in Dutch: having butterflies in your belly!
The wonderful thing about falling in love is it’s not only another woman or man you can fall in love with. I remember very well, when my grandchildren were born, I immediately fell in love with those precious and wonderful little human beings! I wanted to hug and kiss them all the time.
Whenever I look at my audience during the Maastricht concert I get the feeling that everybody is in love! People seem so happy! Not only are they singing along with all their heart but they’re constantly hugging and kissing each other, forgetting all the rest of the world.
And that’s all due to the fantastic magical power of music!
Live performance by Dutch violinist and composer André Rieu recorded in London in 2015. Rieu is joined on stage by the Johann Strauss Orchestra to play a selection of festive songs including ‘White Christmas’, ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ and ‘Jingle Bells’.

André’s fans have been looking forward to this moment for nearly a year: the new Blu-ray of this summer’s Vrijthof concert in Maastricht is out! It was a fantastic event once again, with tens of thousands of people coming from all over the world to enjoy it. If you missed it, now is your chance to catch up. As always with André, ‘WONDERFUL WORLD’ is a brilliant product, bringing you a fabulous summer evening concert in Maastricht. The Platinum Tenors sing a world-famous aria from Georges Bizet’s ‘The Pearl Fishers’ and the well-known ‘Amor, vida de mi vida’. Carmen Monarcha shines as Madam Butterfly, Donij Van Doorn sings the Vilja song with great passion and Mirusia Louwerse steals everyone’s heart with a song from ‘The Phantom of the Opera’. Under the inspirational direction of André Rieu, the Johann Strauss Orchestra plays pieces including ‘Capriccio Italien’, ‘The Gypsy Princess’ and ‘The Blue Danube’. Once again this year André invited some very special guests for the Vrijthof concert: the pan flute musician Gheorghe Zamfir and a range of Romanian musicians and dancers, who provided the stunning finale to a fabulous concert.
