Sir Anthony Hopkins Visits André Rieu in Maastricht

Sir Anthony Hopkins Visits André Rieu in Maastricht

Actor Anthony Hopkins is currently staying in Maastricht. Earlier on Monday, he met with conductor André Rieu. The violinist is providing the arrangement for a waltz which the Oscar-winning British actor composed.
April 11, De Limburger By Our Reporter: Hopkins contacted Rieu a few months ago asking him if he would like to perform his waltz. The British actor and his wife appear to be Rieu fans for years, whom they learned to know through his DVD's. Hopkins along with his wife arrived on Saturday in Maastricht. He and Rieu met for a private meeting on Sunday.
Today the two drove to the studio to listen to the results. According to Rieu's spokeswoman, Hopkins' wife burst into tears while there attending the event.
Hopkins and his wife will come back again to Maastricht in July when Rieu will have his musical performances on the Vrijthof. The Waltz composed by Hopkins will apparently be played then!
The 73-year-old Hopkins, best known for his role as Hannibal Lecter in movies such as "The Silence of the Lambs", also met musicians from Rieu's Johann Strauss Orchestra. The actor will fly back to London today.
Thanks to John and Ineke for finding this and John ©Translating it.

Now that's a composer you wouldn't expect in our studio :)
but he was here today to hear us play the waltz he
composed especially for André and the orchestra!
Anthony Hopkins ... what a wonderful, talented and
inspiring man! (From Frank Steijns Facebook)
