„Emotions are the most important thing in the world!“, says André Rieu. „We should try to make the decisions in our lives with our hearts, not our heads. People oftentimes ask me how I choose what music to play – it’s pure intuition. I love Johann Strauss but Andrew Lloyd Webber and Bruce Springsteen excite me as well. We should stop limiting ourselves with categories and boundaries – not just in terms of music but in our lives in general”.
