Very good, but again not a 'new' release,
This review is from: Songs From My Heart [DVD] (DVD)Once again the company releasing this DVD are marketing it as a 'new' Andre Rieu - it isn't. This concert was filmed in 2005 - the first of what has now become a regular event of concerts in his home town of Maastricht.
At the Andre Rieu web-site no.'s 2, 3, 4 and 5 in this series can be purchased - none of these have had UK releases (yet). One of the 2012 concerts is being shown 'live' in cinemas later this month.
Fans new to the music of Andre Rieu will enjoy this concert, but it's a mystery to me why the company releasing these DVD's keep releasing old discs when the artisists most recent DVD's and CD's haven't had a proper release in the UK (though will probably come out in 6 or 7 years!).

I am really disappointed as I thought it was a new concert not 7 years old. I feel cheated!

Mr. I. S. Parker says:
It is a shame that the record company don't make the age of the recordings clear when they rerelease these DVD's - though being 7 years old doesn't make it a bad concert! The Live in Dublin DVD was over 10 years old by the time it was released in the UK (not that you could tell from the packaging).Andre Rieu has only been really popular in the UK for a couple of years, but for around 20 years in Europe, so he's built up a back-log of material that has never been officially released in the UK. I'm sure the record company will claim they have to release the DVD's in chronological order - though perhaps they could have released them as a 5 disc boxed set instead? Go to the Andre Rieu web-site to get the rest of the Maastricht DVD's.

I agree, I thought this was a new DVD Release, but only to find that I did have a recording taken from SKY Arts sometime ago. Have recorded many disks this way.

I'm pleased to see that there is now going to be a 6 DVD set of the 5 Maastricht concerts + a bonus disc released in July (though not in the UK) - just like i suggested!. It's called "From Maastricht with Love", and is available from the Andre Rieu web-site shortly, or for pre-order at many online retailers.
