I have purchased a number of Andre Rieu's DVDs but this one is difficult to review without running out of superlatives.
The second DVD, The Christmas I Love, is simply stunning. The concert takes place in a barn (appropriate or what?) but I don't think barns of this quality were around two thousand years ago. Candles galore decorating a barn that is as large as a substantial home; children scattered around along with a few farm animals and even a candle-lit Christmas tree all help to give atmosphere to Andre's Christmas concert.
Traditional carols along with a couple of pieces of music that were new to me made this a gem of a DVD. The hour passed quickly but I can watch this again and again - and indeed I plan to do just that over this festive season.
I have never left a review of any of these DVDs before but this one warranted it. If you are stuck for an idea for a gift for ANYONE, I can recommend this. Boy can I recommend it. You will thank me.
