You know we must be on the countdown to Christmas when Andre Rieu releases a much-anticipated collection of festive favourites.

Jolly Holiday is the title of the Dutch violinist's new live CD and DVD, which features a selection of the most famous and beloved Christmas and romantic tunes of all time, all recorded in concerts in his hometown of Masstricht last year.

"It has been a dream of mine for a long time to give Christmas concerts in my hometown Maastricht. And in 2019 this dream came true," said Rieu.

"This album captures the fantastic atmosphere of these concerts as well as an exclusive view behind the scenes."

Last December, 35,000 fans from all over the world travelled to Maastricht to join Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra for three nights of romance, Christmas and music.

"Christmas is my favorite time of the year! With this album I want to take all of you on a beautiful musical journey to winter wonderland - into a fairytale castle, the world of Santa Clause, the magic of Christmas and the beauty and romance of the season," said Rieu.

The CD features hits performed over the three nights, including Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, Silent Night, Snowwaltz, Halleluja (Leonard Cohen), Walking in the Air, Sleigh Ride, Oh When the Saints, Can't help falling in love, I Will Follow Him, Mary's Boychild or What a Wonderful World.

The accompanying 'Making Of' DVD will then take you behind the scenes and for a unique opportunity to follow Andre backstage as he builds the stage for his very own winter wonderland.

Jolly Holiday CD and DVD, RRP $22, is out on November 13 and available from all major outlets and online, andrerieu.com
