André Rieu Video of Maastricht 2013 Concert



Hi fellow André Rieu fans!

My wife and I took a 6 day trip to Maastricht in July, to enjoy one of Andre's concerts in that beautiful city.  In fact, we saw the concert twice, once from inside the auditorium on the Vrijthof, and the next night from one of the brasseries which surround the square.

I kept myself busy with my new video camera and have three videos which you may be interested to see and list for others to see.

PLEASE NOTE that all three videos were recorded, and uploaded to YouTube, in "1080 HD" quality.  If you have a reasonably fast internet connection, you should be able to click on "1080", and then the "Large Player" icon on YouTube - or even "Full Screen" - and get a nice high-def picture.  

1- MAASTRICHT - THE CITY YOU CAN'T HELP BUT FALL IN LOVE WITH.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d605XQHZ2nQ&feature=youtu.be

This was footage taken over our six day stay in Maastricht.  As the title suggests, we fell in love with the city.  It's hard not to - it's such a great place to live and to holiday in.  More so when you have an Andre Rieu concert to go and see.  At the end of the video I have incorporated a very brief clip from the concert.

2- ANDRE RIEU.  PART 1 - PRE CONCERT.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbUwlvMSP80&feature=youtu.be

This was footage taken in the hour or two prior to the concert and includes some close-up footage of Andre Rieu and various members of the orchestra. 

3- MAASTRICHT VIOLIN MAKERS MARTIN & NIELS RIJSEMUS.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBf9rl8DPZM&feature=youtu.be

Quite by chance, while walking through the old quarters of Maastricht, we came across the workshop of a father and son violin-making business.  Martin Rijsemus is the father and Niels the son.  From a photo in their workshop window it was clear that they worked with Andre Rieu.  I e-mailed them asking if they would grant me an interview.  To my surprise they agreed.  The next day we went along to meet Martin and Niels at their workshop.  And this video records the interview I had with them.  Can you believe that Martin studied music with Andre 35 years ago and worked alongside him when the orchestra was first formed!

At 39 mins long the video is not something to watch if you're in a hurry. It's a relaxed, informal interview.  I could have made the video shorter, but that would have been to miss out on so much fascinating information.  I almost guarantee that you'll find the video of interest.

Enjoy! Lloyd
