André Rieu: Concert Brazil 2014
Duration: 90 min
Rieu, 66, is the son of a conductor. He grew up in the Netherlands and began playing violin at the age of five. At first, he played in his father’s orchestra, but didn’t particularly like the serious atmosphere in the concert halls. “They all looked so serious”, he recalls. “The music was joyous and yet you weren’t allowed to cough nor laugh.”
He found his inspiration in the evening moments that the audience clearly enjoyed, as the concert ended with waltzes that delighted the crowd. In 1987, he decided to devote his career to the Viennese music of the 19th century, Johann Strauss in particular.
Just like Strauss himself, who preferred to perform in public parks rather than the salons of high society, Rieu stands in the centre of the stage at his concerts, amidst extravagant sets and a huge ensemble of musicians and chorus.
Also like Strauss, Rieu conducts his orchestra with his violin bow and breaks the dusty rules of classical music by making jokes, telling stories, and occasionally even adding a dash of slapstick comedy. All the while, the audience clap enthusiastically in the aisles, sing, hum and dance.
