Love in Maastricht – Andre Rieu
DVD Wholesale Quick Overview:
All the Andre Rieu DVDs that I have were released prior to 2014. I love most of them and found them very enjoyable. Andre does a wonderful job. I was excited to get two new DVDs, “The Magic of Maastricht” released in 2017 and “Love in Maastricht” released in 2019. I was looking forward to getting to see the current orchestra. I was deeply disappointed. The music and the soloists were okay, but I did not like what appeared to be a party atmosphere. That might be okay if one was attending the concert, but I did not like it on the DVD. I did not like the silly drinking that went with the song, “Libiamo”. I got tired of hearing Andre telling the audience that it was time to close that went on for about one third of the program. Dancing on the piano? That wasn’t impressive at all. Like I said, all that might be okay for a party atmosphere but not for a DVD. I am beginning to wonder if Andre’s music is not drawing enough people and he is trying to do funny things to get them back. I will not buy another of his DVDs that are the Maastricht concerts and look very closely at any others he produces. I loved the old Andre and his music.
I have collected all of Andre’s discs and as usual this one does not disappoint. The music and video is outstanding. I was concerned a blu ray version was not available although the dvd is in my opinion just as good. As with all his discs the musical presentation is superb but equally important is the setting and audience reaction. Highly recommended!
By getting the DVD instead of the CD, I could enjoy not only the superb music, but the magic that is Andre Rieu when you attend a concert in person. I have attended 2 concerts in person and have been caught up in the joy of music that makes you never want the night to end. Andre Rieu makes music fun and exciting. I hope to attend more concerts when he comes to California again, but in the meantime, I can enjoy the DVD again and again!
