When I immigrated from Germany to Hamburg in 2002, André Rieu was already famous and touring Germany. However, I never went to one of his concerts and as I hardly ever watch TV, I didn't see his orchestra on TV either.

So last week we finally got his CD from the public library totally unbiased and listened to it.
We are both Strauss fans and love the Strauss waltzes from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

We listened to the first waltz on the Rieu CD (On the beautiful blue Danube) and shook our heads. What happened to this once so lovely and energetic waltz? This sounded as if a 3 man band played it. Waltzes HAVE to be played by a huge orchestra in order to sound right!!! This is not what Strauss had on his mind when he composed his waltzes.

Well, we listened to a few more waltzes (Voices of Spring is usually my favorite waltz), but with every new song we got the feeling, we heard the previous song. Totally uninspired music. There was absolutely no difference between each waltz. Very repetitive.
A small chamber orchestra really shouldn't play waltzes.
If I could give zero stars, I would have done it.
This kind of music is an affront/insult to every waltz lover!
