André Rieu is back in Maastricht on July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21! Enjoy André’s summer evening concerts on the most romantic square in the Netherlands: the Vrijthof in Maastricht! He plays several summer evenings on the square with his Johan Strauss Orchestra and guest performers. In July 2019 André gives his beloved concerts for the fifteenth year in a row. Around 150.000 people enjoyed the concerts last year, and this year you can be part of it as well.
André Rieu is the world’s most successful violinist and bestselling classical musician of all times. As a child, he was already fascinated by the world of music. His father was a conductor and André was fascinated by his massive orchestra and its beautiful sound. He just loved it. But the gloomy atmosphere during those concerts bothered him. For André all those serious faces and the obligatory silence didn’t match the joy and exuberant enthusiasm he felt in the music. This solemn atmosphere is hard to find at André’s concerts. His concerts are all about having fun together. His dream is to make the entire classical music genre accessible and fun to everyone.
