For the last decade, internationally renowned violinist André Rieu has enchanted PBS audiences with concert specials from Dublin to Tuscany to his Dutch hometown of Maastricht. In ANDRÉ RIEU: RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL, LIVE IN NEW YORK, Rieu and his special musical guests perform for a sold-out crowd at the famed Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The program airs as part of the holidays programming on WPBT2.
Recorded in July 2006, the concert features 21 selections, ranging from songs popularized in films and musicals to more traditional and classical pieces, performed by Rieu and his special guests: the Harlem Gospel Choir, Johann Strauss Orchestra and Rieu’s vocal choir. Rieu’s Radio City Music Hall concert also marks the return of five-year-old violinist Akim Camara, who originally delighted Rieu fans at age three when he played his very little violin in a previous special.
In Radio City Music Hall, which Rieu considers very special to him and his orchestra, he pays tribute to Frank Sinatra in a moving rendition of “My Way.” Other music included in ANDRÉ RIEU: RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL, LIVE IN NEW YORK:
