André Rieu's Strauss Orchestra Waltzes Into UK Pop Charts

André Rieu's Strauss Orchestra Waltzes Into UK Pop Charts

January 18, 2010 London

An album of 19th Century Waltzes has stormed past Susan Boyle's record breaking debut to make the 'Pop Charts' top 10. "Forever Vienna", by Dutch violinist and conductor André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra, has entered the 'Pop Charts' at number six, putting it ahead of Susan Boyle's 'I Dreamed a Dream', the biggest selling album of last year.

Rieu's album, which features works such as The Blue Danube and Radetzky March composed by Strauss, has also reached Number One in the classical charts. Such was its popularity that shops across the country ran out of copies in the first week of its release.

Never before has this music made it to the top of the (pop) charts, but André Rieu is the man to do it. Being one of the music world's best kept secrets, he certainly has a talent for bringing traditional waltz music to life, to be enjoyed in the way it was in its heyday. Rieu is adored by his fans all over the world and with this album he has shown music fans in the UK why.

"The waltz encapsulates all emotions in life, and this is why people love it," said Mr. Rieu, who has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. "This UK 'pop' chart entry is proof of that, so I am thrilled."
