5.0 out of 5 stars Andre' the Royale Conductor!, 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rieu Royale (Audio CD)
Having seen the concert on TV I was expecting a soundtrack of the programme, but sadly, it is only 11 of the 20 pieces of music.Saying this however, it is better to have the 11 than none at all!I have also purchased the DVD of this super programme, which includes all of the tracks.The music is excellently performed as ever,and the sound is perfect to my ear.As I listen to this partial soundtrack, I automatically envision the concert I watched, bringing back the ambiance of the joy (and even some of the tears) I experienced at the time.The music is of course in honour & celebration of the new Dutch King Willem and his wife Maxime (sp?) on their Inaugration Day. The poigancy of the slide show shown on the DVD (which was shown during the concert,photo's of the former Queen Beatrix over the years of her reign & then the new reign of the young royal couple through recent photo's) will come to mind to those who have seen the concert on TV.I would strongly recommend if you enjoy this CD then you must purchase the DVD which brings it sensibly together.Andre Rieu is at his very best as well as his fantastic Johann Strauss Orchestra.It is also interesting to observe the Dutch people's respect and love of their monarch and country!It is a stirring soundtrack of patriotic music as well as accented by others, such as: Time to Say Goodbye/ Don't Cry For Me Argentina/You'll Never Walk Alone.A must for any Rieu fan!
