André Rieu's Maastricht Concert Erina

André Rieu’s annual hometown Maastricht concerts attract fans from all corners of the globe. The medieval town square is transformed into a spectacular backdrop for unforgettable concerts filled with humour, fun and emotion for all ages—and, of course, magnificent music. This year’s theme is a dedication to the waltz. The majestic waltz has been such an inspiration to André Rieu throughout his career that its three-four beat has become, in many ways, the rhythm of his life. From an international football match at Amsterdam stadium in 1995, when André filled the half-time interval with a performance of a classic waltz, to his Maastricht concerts of 2011, where André premiered ‘And The Waltz Goes On’, composed by Oscarâ-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins, this popular dance has often taken centre stage. André has composed many waltzes and since 1987, he and his Johann Strauss Orchestra have been delighting audiences all over the world with their magnificent renditions of classic waltzes.

And so it is for the Grigoryan Brothers whose performances are marked by an intangible connection to the soul of the music they play. Past: Favourite works from their back catalogue of recordings – from Bach to Towner, from Tchaikovsky to Lovelady. Present: Their own compositions and arrangements including a selection from the soundtrack to the movie ‘A Boy Called Sailboat’ which they wrote and recorded – due for global release in 2019.The movie has already won a number of awards including best Best Director and Best Screenplay at the prestigious Boston Film Festival. Future: Audiences will have the opportunity to hear works from Slava and Leonard’s next recording project - to be released in late 2019 - of Handel keyboard suites masterfully arranged for them by their father Edward (who their gratitude extends).

From the producers/directors of last year’s smash hit The Woman in Black comes Stepping Out. Seven women and a lone man leave their troubles at the door and escape into a brave new world – of tap dancing. Personalities clash, misunderstandings arise, tempers flare, through it all, with hilarious laughter, a bond develops between the eight wannabe tappers, their teacher - former professional dancer Mavis - and cranky old Mrs Fraser, the pianist.

Daniel Thompson's Johnny Cash Live: San Quentin 50 Years On

In 1969, off the back of the huge success of 1968's 'At Folsom Prison' album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, 'At San Quentin'. With the 'Folsom' album kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, 'At San Quentin' continued his meteoric rise to his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music. During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates on side with his song 'San Quentin' which opens with the lyrics "San Quentin, you’ve been living hell to me" and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the 'At San Quentin' album. Most notably the album included the worldwide smash hit single, A Boy Named Sue, which undeniably made Cash a global superstar and household name. Sue became Cash’s highest ever charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was only held out of the number one spot by the Rolling Stones ‘Honky Tonk Women’.
