André Rieu

Biography

The Dutch violinist and composer Andre Rieu is a waltz fanatic and the founder of the Johann Strauss Orchestra, a group dedicated to the Viennese waltz; he counters the genre's stuffy stereotype with charismatic onstage antics more in keeping with a rock star. He founded his orchestra in 1987, and thanks to worldwide touring, a repertoire that mixes classical and pop music, and a broadly appealing discography, Rieu has become a major star of classical crossover.
