André Rieu Musician or Mountebank?

André Rieu Musician or Mountebank?
 
Martin Buzacott - He's a byword for kitsch, a shibboleth among the classical cognoscenti, but André Rieu is also one of those rare classical musician who can fill stadiums and reach an entirely new audience. Is he just a musical showman, or are we underestimating him? From Australia, Martin Buzacott explores the phenomenon that is André Rieu.

Lots of sour grapes in the classical music world. Quality always shows through in the end.
Thanks for this!

AR and the JSO give much pleasure to many thousands of fans, as can be seen by the happy faces at their concerts. This music fills a gap in the market which is enjoyed by many. Don't listen if you don't like it!
