Paraphrasing Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music:
When my faith in fellow humans takes a hit,
When world events make me sad,
I listen to Andre Rieu‘s beat
And suddenly my heart doesn’t feel as bad.
And more from Lada, the budding poet…
He is famous for spilling the stuffy classical music halls
Into squares of towns all over the world;
For infusing the immortal music’s sound
With fresh air (literally) and crowd’s joyful bout.
I love him for giving permission to himself and others to have fun while performing, and for the contagious, unadulterated joy he brings me every time I listen. Bravo, Maestro!
My favorite waltzes with Andre Rieu
Number 1 favorite pick-me-upper: the immortal Second Waltz (Russian Waltz) by great Dmitry Shostakovich. Andre Rieu’s live performance in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I love the people’s participation, all that singing along and dancing. And as many pointed out, people are well dressed and have manners – how refreshing!
My feelings in Spanish:
André Rieu es increíble! La alegría que transmite con su música no tiene comparación! Puedo oírla todo el día!
By the way, hear in the end people chanting in the background: “Mo-lo-dtsi, mo-lo-dtsi,” which is plural for “molodets” – famous Russian word loosely translated as “awesome person/people” (synonymous with “bravo”)…and the concert is taking place in Argentina! He truly is a global citizen – how awesome!
