A litte more about Andre...

Thanks for the comments regarding the Andre Rieu post. I do have to acknowledge to his fan base that they bring up a valid point: he is a good violinist. Same goes to his Orchestra members. But, his concerts are just not the way I prefer to listen to classical music, that's all.

Please check out the comments of his loyal fans. It must mean some one out there is reading our blog:) In the mean time, maybe for future post, I might go hunting on the web to see if there are any zany web site shrines adoring Andre. I'd love to see if any one emails me one.

One other very important thing. I mentioned the wrong venue and forgot to mention the date of the concert. Shoot! So here it is:

Andre Rieu & His Johann Strauss Orchestra
Qwest Center in Omaha NE
October 18 2007
8:00 p.m.

Interesting that it's on Halloween. Wonder if they'll have a masked ball theme or play some Phantom of the Opera. :)

To Chg,
You really don't know anything about Andre Rieu or this orchestra members. Andre was trained to be a classical violinist. All of his orchestra members were also trained classically. Andre did not know anything about the music that he plays now while employed as a classical violinist. He researched, found and resurrected the music he plays now. Much of the music was long forgotten or not played in public. The "Second Waltz" or "Waltz Number 2" is a example.
