If Rieu is not the most outstanding purveyor of Viennese waltzes and similar light-hearted fare, he is certainly the most popular and well-known. There are plenty of fun pieces on this album, although, to be just a tad pedantic, more of it is Italian and French than remotely Viennese. But it's all fun, and it's all well-played. --Sarah Bryan Miller

"Rieu is an entertaining musician. He plays and conducts. The mix of music is easy to listen to and my wife and I found outselves waltzing to the Cd almost as soon as we played it for the first time. I first heard this Cd on PBS and just fell in love with it."
It's fun and it's genuine

"It's amazing to see how stuffy some can be when they see others having fun. I'm very much surprised our German commenter (who needs to spell check the big words) would even be listening to operetta (rather than "pure" classics by Wagner and Beethoven, et al) This album represents the fun of beauty - lovely waltzes played with love and from the heart. By a "clown" violinist? Well, who doesn't love a clown when his main purpose is YOUR enjoyment? Get the album. Enjoy the music. Close your eyes and go to Vienna. And remember - it's easier for one German to be wrong than a million Viennese."
Depressed? Listen to this!

"Having one of those ho-hum days just like that little round guy on the Zoloft commercial? Place this on your CD, press start, and don't fight it! You will be dancing around the living room (provided you don't fight it, just let it go!). Musically, it is a very fine piece from a very fine artist. It can totally transport you. So many of the tunes you will know from TV commercials, (Rheingold Beer) etc. It is a solid beautiful collection of tunes that can stir the soul. I know it sounds schmaltzy, but if it can make you feel better,why not try it?"
