5.0 out of 5 stars Strauss in Style 17 Jan 2010
By Angela
Verified Purchase
This DVD is a recording of a 1999 Strauss centennial celebration concert in Vienna but Andre speaks to us in English.
If you enjoy the televised Viennese New Year concerts this one cannot fail to entertain and the joyous atmosphere is uplifting, just what you need on a dull day or cold evening. Very special for those of us who have visited Vienna and fondly remember the Strauss Volksgarten Konzert style. A smaller JSO orchestra than of late, about 50 or so, in a very pretty setting. There are some intercuts of lovely Austrian Scenery, charming views and a special homage to the memory of Strauss by Andre Rieu. The 60 min programme comprises:
Vienna Blood
Draussen In Sievering Bluht Schoen Der Flieder
Perpetuum Mobile
On Holiday
The Gypsy Baron Her Die Hand!/Oh Habet Acht!
Ohne Sorgen
Casanova Nun's Chorus
Cachucha Galopp
Fata Morgana
The Gypsy Baron Wer Uns Getraut
Eljen A Mayar!
The Blue Danube
Spanish March
Strauss-Final
Extras of DVD Trailers
NTSC/0 Region free for NTSC compatible TVs and Players

5.0 out of 5 stars 100 YEARS OF STRAUSS (DVD) (VIENNA) 14 April 2014
By ralph
Verified Purchase
THIS CONCERT, HELD IN VIENNA, CELEBRATES A CENTENARY OF STRAUSS, IT WAS RECORDED IN 1999. NATURALLY, MANY OF THE ORCHESTRA LOOK A LITTLE YOUNGER. IT IS A REFRESHING CHANGE FROM THE RECENT MEGA-CONCERTS TO HAVE A ONE HOUR PROGRAMME WITH JUST THE ORCHESTRA IN A MODEST SIZED HALL. THERE ARE NO SINGERS OR CHOIRS, JUST LOVELY INSTRUMENTAL PIECES. HOWEVER, THE AUDIENCE STILL DANCED IN THE AISLES AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THEMSELVES. THIS IS A DELIGHTFUL LITTLE CONCERT D.V.D. WITH ANDRE SPEAKING IN ENGLISH. I REALLY ENJOYED IT AND RECOMMEND IT TO YOU.

TRACK LIST:
1. VIENNA BLOOD
2. DRAUSSEN IN SIEVERING BLUHT SCHON DER FLIEDER
3. PERPETUUM MOBILE
4. ON HOLIDAY
5. THE GYPSY BARON HER DIE HAND / OH HABET ACHT
6. OHNE SORGEN
7. CASANOVA
8. CACHUCHA GALOPP
9. FATA MORGANA
10. THE GYPSY BARON WER UNS GETRAUT
11. ELJEN A MAGYAR
12. THE BLUE DANUBE
13. SPANISH MARCH (RADETZKY MARCH)
14. STRAUSS - FINAL

5.0 out of 5 stars ..... Andre's finest hour ..... 20 Oct 2003
By Bill Suda - Published on Amazon.com
Andre Rieu is a great showman - beyond his enormous musical talent. And he has created an orchestra made up of very carefully selected musicians who are not only accomplished players of their own chosen instruments, but who also have a passion for the genre of music they perform. In addition, all of Andre's players are chosen for their conviviality, so that each and every one contributes to the "esprit de corps" and "joie de vivre" that make his a unique orchestra in our contemporary culture.

In addition to the splendid string, brass, and woodwind sections, the Johann Strauss Orchestra also includes a wide range of percussion instruments, a cymbalo, and even a concert grand piano. The piano harmonizes with the rest of the orchestra for melodic support, and yet contributes its own special luster. And while every background musician in this orchestra performs admirably, with repeated exposure it becomes apparent that the piano, flute, oboe, and bassoon players, as well as both of the percussionists, are really outstanding.

Nonetheless, after performing each piece, Andre insists that EVERY performer in his orchestra (about 50 musicians) stand up and share the thunderous applause coming from a very appreciative audience. This connection between performers and audience builds and builds until, by the time of the concert's approaching finale, some of the audience actually starts dancing in the isles, and the remainder (about 1500 patrons) gradually all stand up, link arms, and start humming along with the music while swaying side to side. This is Andre's dream come true, and even while he is still playing and conducting, his face begins to beam with great pride while watching this emotional spectacle in the audience come to life right in front of him. All in all, it is a wonderfully moving experience that can bring tears to your eyes and make your heart sing for many a day.

This DVD is a fabulous recording of a 1999 centennial celebration concert in a Vienna music hall. For anyone not familiar with the music of the Strauss family, I know of no better introduction; for the many who have already enjoyed televised Viennese concerts, this one cannot fail to at least entertain; and finally, for all those folk long in love with the Strauss Volksgarten Konzert style, this particular video recording is surely a portal to Paradise.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a surprise that it is an English version 30 Jan 2003
By Leung Kwai Ying - Published on Amazon.com
When this DVD was announced to launch on Jan 23, 2003 I was hesitated to make a preorder because I got the video already. But I am glad I did because this is an English version whereas the video is in German. I appreciate that no other artists could be so considerate as Andre who always records more than two languages versions for his fans all over the world, it requires extra effort especially in a live concert. This was a concert in Vienna in1999 in memory of 100 years of Johann Strauss death. Let's see how magnificant the concert hall has been decorated, how beautiful are the music and remarkable the performance of Andre & the JSO. As a bonus special, we also know some update facts & data about Andre which every fan would be interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andre Rieu's love for Johann Strauss 23 April 2008
By Margrit A. Jay - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I own a few of Andre Rieu's DVDs. In my opinion, this is one of his best. He takes care to explain the background of Strauss' music, music that has enchanted millions of listeners for decades. I am grateful that this musician dedicates himself to the resurrection of Strauss'immortal music and his DVDs are excellent, with the exception of his Flying Dutchman, which is complicated by having to switch to the second page of the DVD. There are some I would not buy, i.e.the DVD music from Tuscany, and some where he simply strays off his musical focus by introducing too many side shows. His strength lies in the purity of adhering to the music of Johann Strauss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Western Culture at its Greatest 12 Nov 2006
By Colorado Goddess - Published on Amazon.com
Amazing man, possibly his best DVD. How far this culture has fallen from the splendor of ballroom dances and Strauss to Emniem and 50 Cent.

This is one of the best orchestras to present the Strauss music I have ever listened to. Andre Rieu really gets into the music and really enjoys what he is doing.
