i watched this amazing concert on channel 5 tv last sunday, and at first wasn't impressed. but after 15 minutes or so, i was taken in by this man with the violin. the music itself was incredible, his orchestra are one of the finest on the planet. and the audience participation was a celebration just like a christmas concert. i don't know why i like this music, really i am not a classical fan. but that's why i have ordered one of andre's dvd's on play. one thing's for sure early xmas morning his dvd will be playing on my plasma tv, even if it drives my wife crazy. hats off to mr.rieu, you are a true master.
