Andr Rieu is a violinist, conductor and international star following sales of more than 10 million CDs worldwide. With his extravagant concerts and compelling TV specials he has won the hearts of millions of music lovers. Andr Rieu was born in the Netherlands, in 1949. He grew up surrounded exclusively by classical music. Andre started taking violin lessons at the age of five, the beginning of a love affair that would never end. As a student he was asked to take part in a salon ensemble and as he played his first waltz a whole new world opened up for him. From that time on Andr was hooked on the waltzes' rhythm and dreamt of creating a large orchestra that would enchant its audience. After recruiting his own Johann Strauss Orchestrao Andr began to tour. He has toured throughout the world and won audience's hearts everywhere he goes. Crowned the Waltz Kingo, Andr 's wish was to make classical music accessible for everyone, and this has undoubtedly come true. All over the world millions of people of all ages enjoy going to his concerts and listening to his music. My Music My Life explores the story of Andr 's youth, growing up in the Netherlands; the musical family he grew up in; his music studies; and his extraordinary success story. This fascinating biography was written by Andr 's wife, Marjorie Rieu.
