This week the Dutch program and Facebook SBSradioDutch were dominated by a visit to the studio of Dutch mega star André Rieu. He came and conquered the studio with his own cameramen, publicity agents and security team. He stayed for 20 minutes to chat about his upcoming tour, the book his wife wrote about his life, shared the story of Sir Anthony Hopkins' involvement with his orchestra and chose the tracks to play from his latest CD.
On Facebook we posted a photo of him as a child with a bird nest on his head and asked people to provide a caption. He could not remember why he was photographed with a bird nest on his head, but was amused by some of the captions and chose the winner who will receive an André Rieu DVD.
This interview by Richard Wilkins is from May 2013.
