Rieu Wins Classic Brit Awards Album of The Year Third Time in a Row!


King of the Waltz André Rieu has won the Classic FM Album of the Year award at this year's Classic BRITs - for the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW.

October 2, 2013: His album Magic of the Movies beat competition from other nominees including Andrea Bocelli, Friar Alessandro, Lang Lang and Nicola Benedetti among others.


Dutch violin superstar André Rieu becomes first artist to win the same award three years in a row.

The award was announced tonight at the Classic BRIT Award ceremony in London's Royal Albert Hall by Classic FM presenter, Aled Jones. ~ "With so many incredible albums released over the past 12 months I can honestly say that whoever wins this prestigious award tonight must have created something truly phenomenal to triumph against this competition," Aled said as he introduced the category.

(André) "I'm so sorry I could not come to collect this fantastic prize you gave me again, for the third time," he said, in a video acceptance speech. "I had a lot of fun making this record, and I heard you had a lot of fun listening to it!"
