André Rieu gave John Suchet a guided tour of Rome and it was truly splendid

André Rieu gives John Suchet a tour of Rome

The King of the Waltz shows our very own John Suchet around Rome to celebrate the launch of his new album.

André Rieu’s new album is all about the music of Rome, so John Suchet was understandably delighted to be personally invited to visit the man himself in his favourite city.

André Rieu and John Suchet got on absolutely famously, as you can see from this bromantic video. After a wander around the town and a quick rickshaw journey, André lets John in on his passion for the Roman way of life, and the music that goes with it.

André’s album, Roman Holiday, features all manner of Italian music, from Verdi’s La Traviata, Puccini’s Madame Butterfly and Ennio Morricone’s gorgeous ‘Gabriel’s Oboe’.
