André Rieu Talks of Storming UK Pop Charts!

André Rieu The Waltz King

André Rieu talks about Storming the UK Pop Chart with an Album of Waltzes

The UK Telegraph: February 5, 2010

"You know, I think the waltz is music for eternity," says André Rieu. "Sometimes my colleagues say, 'How can you stand to play that stuff every night?" But for me it's easy, there's always something new to find in them. They are a combination of melancholy and joy ~ just like life."

"Strauss himself used different forces on tour, depending on the size of the hall. I always remember Herbert von Karajan's remark that we have a responsibility to composers to do more than obey the dots on the page. We have to make these works live."

As of today, Friday Feb. 5th, 'Forever Vienna' is now #3 on the UK Pop Charts!

Making these works live is what André does better than anyone. He is unique, gives the music so much personality and has great instincts about what his audience wants to hear. I still wonder how I didn't know about him sooner, but very happy that I discovered him a few years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed his performances ever since. He's movin' on up.....
