Romancing the Bow 

Andre Rieu plays old music that new audiences love.

When the Modern King of Waltz isn't busy leading orchestras in performances that encourage audiences to dance in the aisles, he's making sweet, sweet love to his violin. "The sound, the shape!" exclaims André Rieu. "It has the shape of a female body. It is great to feel your instrument under your chin, to feel the vibrations." Rieu's latest CD, Love Songs, complements the Dutchman's dashing style, flowing locks, and energetic concerts at the helm of the Johann Strauss Orchestra. For him, it's all about bridging the gap between classical and popular music. "People need to bring their hearts. If they feel like laughing, they should. If they feel like crying, they should. And if they feel like dancing, they should."
