Andre Rieu is a Dutch violinist and conductor. Rieu began playing the violin at only five years old, and comes from a musical background, as his father was also a musician, working as a conductor for the Maastricht Symphony Orchestra. Rieu studied at multiple conservatories over his childhood, including the Conservatoire Royal and the Conservatorium Maastricht before attending the Music Academy in Brussels.
While in school, Rieu played the Gold and Silver Waltz by Franz Lehár. After watching the audience and their warm reception of the piece, Rieu decided to continue to play the waltz. Early on in his career, Rieu was a member of the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, as well as formed the Maastricht Salon Orchestra.
In 1987, Rieu formed the Johann Strauss Orchestra. Originally comprised of only twelve members, Rieu and his Orchestra toured incessantly across Europe, and sparked a renewed interest in waltz music. Rieu’s prowess in playing this very unique style of music has garnered him the nickname “The Waltz King.” Twenty years after their conception, they found themselves a significantly larger outfit, being comprised of 43 members as opposed to the original twelve.
Despite his classical training and background, the Johann Strauss Orchestra is a very non-traditional orchestra. In addition to playing a number of waltz tunes throughout their performances, they are known for also playing a number of popular and folk music tunes as well. Unlike some of the more traditional orchestras, the Johann Strauss Orchestra frequently plays atypical arrangements of classical songs, and engages in a number of antics with the crowd.
With the Johann Strauss Orchestra, Rieu has taken home two World Music Awards. In addition to the awards and near-universal praise from the press, many of the Johann Strauss Orchestra’s albums as well as Rieu’s solo albums have reached gold or platinum certification. His 2008 album, Waltzing Matilda, performed as a duo with Australian soprano singer Mirusia, reached the top spot on the Australian charts. His most recent album, And the Waltz Goes On, reached the number one spot on the UK Classical Charts, as well as the Classic FM chart. The album also won the Classic FM Album of the Year at the Classic Brit Awards 2012.
