I am in love!!!

Of course my Dutch friends will know all about him but I have only just discovered him.
Browsing through channels on TV last weekend I discovered a concert on SkyArts
so DH and I watched it enthralled.
It was from Maastricht.
I found there was another concert last night and have been looking forward to it all week.
This time from Italy.
Oh the atmosphere at these open air concerts, as it grew darker.
The audience sing and sway, clap and dance to his music with his beautiful
Johann Strauss Orchestra, his soloists and wonderful singers.
The audience range from very old to very young, even children and babies and sometimes his music moves them to tears.

He plays a Stradivarius violin from 1667.
Oh wouldn't I just love to be among that audience, to soak up all that atmosphere.

I am sooooooo in love with Andre Rieu!
