Andre Rieu’s new release CD ‘Moonlight Serenade’ comes out just in time to accompany his Australian tour this May.
Moonlight Serenade is classical music at its most contemporary. Quite an upbeat and melodic experience while at times still quite mellow and haunting.
There is only 1 track on the CD that actually has vocals which is quite a moving tribute to Andre himself as sung by Judith Durham.
The remainder of the CD is quite beautiful music sure to enchant all lovers of classical music as recorded by Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra.
Andre Rieu is conductor, composer and violinist of great acclaim and his latest offering is vibrant and fun. His orchestra consists of young and enthusiastic musicians whom put their heart and soul into their performance every single time.
Reading up on Andre because I am unfamiliar with his work I found this great quote that I thought was worth sharing:
“At one of our concerts you’ll see me and the orchestra, and the audience too, all having a lot of fun together. Swaying with the music, humming along, clapping, jumping up and down – it all happens! Every evening is a wonderful experience, and in my view there couldn’t be a greater pleasure for a musician.”
“My dream is to make the whole of classical music accessible for everyone. To achieve that, I’ve had my own recording studio built, and we’re working hard to make new recordings of the classical repertoire.”
This recording really is reminiscent of those feelings!
