André Rieu on his way to New York (NTSC) With exciting stories about the real life that goes on behind the scenes, this DVD gives a colourful impression of the months of preparation that are going into the concert in New York. Every aspect is covered – the travelling, the fun times on the way, but also the sadness and emotions. What is really involved in organising a concert like this? What does the orchestra eat? Where do they stay? What does André do in the daytime? Do the soloists like going shopping? Or do they prefer to surf the Internet? There are lots of long interviews with André himself, about his work, his private life and his plans for the future. There are interviews with his son Pierre and with orchestra players, soloists, the cook, fans etc. etc. This roadshow was broadcast on Dutch TV in a series of six programmes, and these have now been put together in the DVD ‘André Rieu goes to New York’.
Romance (NTSC) In one of his greatest specials we meet André Rieu as a romantic par excellence. In ‘Romance’ he takes his viewers to see the most beautiful spots he has ever played in, each more romantic than the last: Vienna, Venice, Paris, Tuscany and of course Limburg, the beautiful area of André’s birth in the Netherlands. We see the most moving moments from his musical career and we witness how touched André is when he comes home after years of concert tours to find a rapturous welcome in his own country. Together with his Johann Strauss Orchestra and the sopranos Suzan Erens, Carla Maffioletti and Carmen Monarcha, André Rieu plays sensitive melodies such as the Lagoon Waltz, My heart will go on, Sous le ciel de Paris, The last rose, Du sollst der Kaiser meiner Seele sein and the world-famous Serenade by Toselli. ‘Romance’ from André Rieu stands for pure enjoyment, romance at the highest level!

Romantic Paradise / Special Cortona (NTSC) While on a short holiday in Italy with family and friends, I found myself visiting a small town in Tuscany called Cortona, and I fell in love with it immediately. What an atmosphere! My fans would love this place! And when I wandered into the centre of Cortona I just couldn't believe my luck: right in the middle of the town was the perfect location for my new special: the Piazza Della Repubblica... This was the exact spot, right here between these buildings, in this very special atmosphere, that I wanted for recording the special for my new CD. With everyone invited! These were the ideas that marked the start of what was to become the Romantic Paradise adventure in Cortona. Even though André knew, right from the beginning, that the special release would be a very beautiful one, the final result has exceeded all expectations. The Romantic Paradise DVD is living up to its name on all fronts. Order it now and allow yourself to be swept away to André Rieu's Romantic Paradise.
