...
André Rieu Will Play His Next ZDF Special On The Island of Mainau

April 15, 2010: The island of Mainau is expecting a major star in June. The much acclaimed violinist André Rieu will perform two concerts there. He did not have to be asked twice for this event, as he explained in an interview on the Island of Flowers on Thursday. He was here in 2006 for the first time and it became clear to him very quickly that he wanted to conduct concerts here. ZDF will be recording the concert and it will be aired in October. The title for the performances on the island has already been made public by the Dutchman ... it will be, "Roses From The South."

What a great idea! We have been there long ago. It is a flower Island in a big lake, situated on the border of Germany and Switzerland. They say it has a sub tropical climate and June is the month for roses to bloom!
Wonderful!
