Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time
Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.
That was beautiful
I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.
Oh man I’m such a big fangirl of Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra!
Notice how his audience are sitting at tables drinking and laughing - not sitting and staring at them in seats. Also his orchestra members are dressed in beautiful outfits and actually look like they’re having a great time up on the stage.
I feel that their performances are so enjoyable and much more accessible than other classical music groups — so even if you aren’t a big fan of classical music, definitely check out videos of their performance anyway :D
