Andre Rieu’s 2013 Maastricht Concert at a Cinema Near You

The much anticipated Andre Rieu’s Maastricht Concert 2013 holds 12-14th July at the Vrijthof square in his hometown Maastricht. They are yearly traditional summer evening concerts where the square is transformed into a ‘grand romantic open air concert hall’ . Those unable to attend can watch the concert ‘live’ at cinemas across the world on 13th July. You can find a cinema near you on CinemaLive.

Andre Rieu has been described as the Waltz King. Fusing traditional classical music with contemporary verve, the Johann Strauss Orchestra are pacesetters in tapping into the spirit of the times. They  have carved a niche for themselves and  have become hugely successful in reaching a vast number of music lovers of diverse backgrounds.

Here’s a small sampling of their work which I greatly admire.

Amazing Grace

Auld Lang Syne

Words for Auld Lang Syne (Poem by Robert Burns in 1788)

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On Old long syne.

CHORUS:
On Old long syne my Jo,
On Old long syne,
That thou canst never once reflect,
On Old long syne.

 Enjoy ‘Live in Maastricht’!
