On Saturday August 1st, 2009, the German broadcast company ZDF aired the Maastricht 2009 concert. The three hour concert program had been cut into a 2 hour program. I had the challenge to reduce this to a 54 minute compilation.
Initially I wanted to skip the Blue Danube. It is nice that Mayor Gerd Leers opens the dance, but this song is dedicated to Hideo san and Mihoko san from Japan, who play an important part in this number!
