ANDRÉ RIEU Love in Venice

ANDRÉ RIEU Love in Venice Takes Fans On A Romantic Journey
New Album Will Be Released on November 4
DVD and BluRay Available on Nov 11


LOS ANGELES - Classical phenomenon André Rieu will release his latest album - Love in Venice – on November 4, 2014. Brimming with Italian vitality and romance, Love in Venice features a selection of popular tunes performed in Rieu’s unique and unforgettable way.

Love in Venice CD features Italian classics such as “O Sole Mio,” “Volare,” “That’s Amore” and “Santa Lucia”; the famous “Barcarole” by Jacques Offenbach; the “Lagoon Waltz” by Johann Strauss; and the Toselli Serenade. Additionally, for the first time ever, Rieu’s own compositions - the title track, “Bella Tarantella,” and “La Gondola” - have been recorded and included on an album release. Two other Rieu treats, “Azzurro” and “Mama” are also included.

This year’s open-air concert was held in the romantic Dutch square, the Vrijthof in Maastricht, under the title "An Italian Night." André Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra captivated more than 80,000 fans from across the world taking them on a journey to Italy.

The DVD/BluRay is testament to those unforgettable nights in July when André Rieu turned Maastricht’s main square into a Venetian "piazza grande."

As always, spectators were in for an almost three hour treat including gondolas, world class soloists and a long list of Italian classics and Rieu favorites. Two hours and forty minutes of a musical and visual extravaganza has been edited to BluRay and DVD.

André Rieu says, "I'm asked in almost every interview I do whether I'm a romantic. Of course I am! Venice, La Serenissima, is for me the epitome of romance. For many years, my wife and I have taken our own personal trip once a year to Italy - I'm a big fan of the Italian way of life. And so my new album is a declaration of love to Venice and the fantastic music of this country. And I hope that it will bring back the happiest of memories for you, the listener."

A native of Maastricht, Netherlands, André Rieu is the world’s best-selling classical musician and has brought about an international revival in classical music with his spellbinding musical extravaganzas. André owns the biggest private orchestra in the world and has sold more than 40 million albums and DVDs. This year marks the 20th anniversary of his breakthrough album Strauss & Co, which launched his stratospheric rise in 1994. Since then, he has received more than 400 Platinum and 171 Gold Awards, and he has more than 1.3 million Facebook fans.

In the UK, André made chart history in 2010 when his album Forever Vienna reached No.2 in the UK Pop Charts as well as going straight in at No.1 in the Classical Charts. No other violinist has made such an impact on the charts.

Every year, André, his Johann Strauss Orchestra, chorus and international soloists travel across the world, performing about 100 concerts in front of an audience of one million people. His tours have been on Billboard’s Top 10 for the past ten years.
