Customer Reviews

I enjoy classical music and also Andre Rieu.
Judith M. Boyers
There are fewer more pleasurable events in the musical world than watching and listening to Carla Maffioletti in action.

I saw this Performance on TV first, I really enjoyed it, so I decided to buy the DVD.

This is a 2007 mid-summer concert which took place in front of imperial Hofburg Palace in the center of Vienna.

DVD (DVD9) is in Widescreen (16:9) format with DD5.1 and DD2.0 sound option. Andre Rieu speaks in German but subtitles are available. Main feature runs for 135mins. There are no extra features.

Playlist selection is wonderful with 25 classical hits. Some of them we know from other DVDs of Rieu, but there are some new pieces we will hear in this DVD. There are waltzes, polkas, arias and musical pieces. According to me highlights are All Strauss Waltzes, Eine kleine Nachtmusik (Mozart Medley), The Sound of Music, and Arias. The Johann Strauss Orchestra is accompanied by Choir and joined by guest stars namely The Platine Tenors, Dogmar Koller, Carmen Monarcha, Carla Maffioletti, Mirusia Louwerse and Suzan Erens. They all have wonderful performances. Also the Ballet of the Vienna State Opera, the Vienna debutantes from the Elmayer Dance School joins the Viennese ambient with their waltzes.

One of the best of Andre Rieu's (according to me the other bests are Homecoming and the Schonbrunn Concerts). Especially if you love the waltzing themes, this one is for you with lots of waltzes in the heart of waltz-capital of Europe, Vienna. You will enjoy a real Viennese Night in your homes.

Tracklist:
1.Wiener Burger
2.Tritsch Tratsch Polka
3.Facher Polonaise
4.Fledermaus Quadrille
5.Komm Zigany
6.Csardas
7.Gold und Silber

Format: DVD
I recieved this newly released DVD (30 Sept 2008) as a pleasant surprise gift from a very good friend of mine(EC)who also caught the virus of classical music being spread worldwide by Andre Rieu.

Overall,compared with previous Andre's Concert DVD's,there is a marked increase of the usual elegance and finesse in the innovated presentation of Andre Rieu being accompanied by the Johann Strauss orchestra and choir. It is more apparent when we consider the concert is being held in Vienna, the home of the Strauss family and the birthplace of the waltz.

The stage is set up in Michaeler Square on the doorsteps(literally) of the Imperial Hofburg Palace in Vienna city center. A big 'Bravo' to the Stage Designer Marianne & Johny Lochner for their innovation about setting up two dance floors,one on each side of the orchestra bay. An extension of the dance floors is inside the original magnificent dance floor of the Imperial Hofburg Palace with its numerous classical chandeliers. This latter is shown on widescreens provided for the spectators.As expected, the inside ballroom of the palace displays all the sumptuous splendour and grandeur as it did in the 19th Century when Johann Strauss was teaching the world and Queen Victoria to waltz!

The performers on the dance floors are the outstanding Ballet group of The Vienna State Opera, Thomas Elmeyer group of Debutante Couples and the Folk Opera group of Vienna. In the various appropriate traditional costumes they open the show/concert with a pre-Strauss era ,Church approved 'strict' Quadrille formation dancing which easily transport the spectators to the time and place.

Andre's brief historical account of how the Waltz caused 'all hell to break loose' and 'stormed the world' has his usually witty sense of humour.

Tastes are, of course, subjective, but, in my opinion, "Live in Vienna" is far and away the best concert ever performed by Andre' Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra. (My second favorite would be "At the Schoennbrunn" - Andre' is always at his best performing in the Land of Strauss).

I first saw this concert advertiesed by my local PBS channel during one of their fund drives and assumed that it was one I had already seen (after all, he has certainly performed in Vienna enough times.) Much to my pleasant surprise the very first selection. Vienna Citizens" was a waltz I had not heard in 20 years and I had never heard performed by Andre' Rieu. I remembered it as one of my all time favorite "Strauss waltzes" Imagine my chagrin when I subsequently discovered that it had been composed by Carl Michael Ziehrer, a younger contemporary of Johann Straus II. Oh well, it's a beautiful waltz anyway.

Early on a number of young ladies in evening gowns and young men in "Hapsburg" uniforms performed a visually beautiful "Fledermaus Quadrille" in the sumptious ballrooms of the Imperial Apartments. Thirty years ago my late wife and I went to Vienna and saw what may have been the precursors to this group. It certainmly brought back pleasant memories.This was followed by more waltz music including the "Gold and Silver Waltz by Lehar (another one on my favorites.)

A change of pace was introduced at this point with a Mozart medley during which the orchestra mirthfully played a few bars of that well known Mozart melody "Twinkle, Twinkle
Little Star" while a large portrait of Mozart "winked" at the audience. Most impressive during the Mozart segment was the piano solo by a lovely young pianist whose keyboard stylings
were surehanded as well as delicate.
