Roses, autumn leaves, a carnival in Venice, a night of stars… these are the ingredients for André Rieu’s newest CD ‘You Raise Me Up’. It’s a bouquet of simply gorgeous, lush melodies, many of them recorded for the first time by André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra.
The album features soprano soloists Australian-born Mirusia Louwerse and Brazilian-born Carmen Monarcha, who make the recording debut as duetists for Send in the Clowns. The delightful Platin Tenors are also featured who sing the Chiantilied and the ‘mum’ song of songs, Mamma.
As with every André Rieu CD, it’s beautiful, memorable melodies in lavish arrangements, all with the stamp of Maestro Rieu that make this the perfect album for Mother’s Day – and, in fact, well beyond.
