This LIVE registration (CD & DVD) features a selection of the most famous and beloved Christmas tunes of all times, such as Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, White Christmas, Silent Night, O Holy Night, The Holy City, Walking in the Air, Sleigh Ride, Oh When the Saints, I Will Follow Him, Panis Angelicus, Amen, Mary’s Boychild or What a Wonderful World as well as an exclusive look behind the scenes into the magical world of André Rieu.
André Rieu says: “Christmas is my favorite time of the year! With this album, I want to take all of you on a beautiful musical journey to winter wonderland – into a fairytale castle, the world of Santa Clause, the magic of Christmas, and the beauty of the season. It has been a dream of mine for a long time to give Christmas concerts in my hometown Maastricht. And in 2019 this dream came true. This CD & DVD captures the fantastic atmosphere of these concerts as well as an exclusive view behind the scenes. I am thrilled to share it with you and wish you a wonderful holiday season with a lot of music.”
Through an incredible life with unparalleled achievement, the world-renowned violinist Rieu is the biggest Classical Music artist in the world right now. With over 40 million records sold worldwide and selling 700.000 tickets per year in 2018 and 2019 – not to mention becoming the biggest cinema music concert event of all time – it’s no wonder he has been dubbed ‘the maestro of the masses’ by the New York Times.
In December 2019, 35.000 fans from all over the world traveled to Maastricht to join André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra for three unforgettable nights of romance, Christmas, and music. You can now enjoy this unique atmosphere on this very special LIVE recording from the comfort of your living room.
