A declared lover of the country, violinist and composer Andre Rieu will return to Bucharest this summer for a concert set to take place on June 11th in Piata Constitutiei.

He will be performing alongside the Johann Strauss Orchestra, in the same venue where his previous seven local concerts took place in 2015, gathering over 85,000 people. Last year, when Rieu announced his first concert in Romania, the tickets sold in less than three hours.

Known for playing a repertoire filled with well-known, classical music pieces, Andre Rieu has been a promoter of Romanian culture and traditional music and dances also. He performed alongside Romanian pan flute musician Gheorghe Zamfir and included Romanian pieces into his concerts. He declared solidarity with the Romanian people following the Colectiv nightclub fire and visited the site to pay homage to the victims.

For his work, he has been awarded such honours as the Order of the Netherlands Lion by the Netherlands, the Knight of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by France, and the Honorary Medal by his native Province of Limburg.

Tickets, priced RON 172 to RON 864, are available at eventim.ro and in the Eventim network of partners stores Orange, Vodafone, Germanos and the Carturesti and Humanitas bookstores.
