André Rieu - Magic of the Violin

Classic FM Album of the Week, 11 May 2015, after 10am

The violin has always been central to everything that André Rieu does – whether it's touring, recording or composing.

For this new anthology, the master showman from Maastricht has put together 15 tracks that show off the full range of his repertoire – from Vivaldi's Winter, through Dvorak's Song to the Moon and Shostakovich's 'Romance' from The Gadfly, to the Frank Sinatra classic My Way.

It is as slick, sumptuously produced and as entertaining as André's millions of fans have come to expect, and is no doubt set for a very long stay at the top of the Classic FM chart.
