While on a short holiday in Italy with family and friends, I found myself visiting a small town in Tuscany called Cortona, and I fell in love with it immediately. What an atmosphere! My fans would love this place! And when I wandered into the centre of Cortona I just couldn't believe my luck: right in the middle of the town was the perfect location for my new special: the Piazza Della Repubblica... This was the exact spot, right here between these buildings, in this very special atmosphere, that I wanted for recording the special for my new CD. With everyone invited! These were the ideas that marked the start of what was to become the Romantic Paradise adventure in Cortona. Even though André knew, right from the beginning, that the special release would be a very beautiful one, the final result has exceeded all expectations. The Romantic Paradise DVD is living up to its name on all fronts. Order it now and allow yourself to be swept away to André Rieu's Romantic Paradise.
