Notes & Reviews:

The 2013 compilation Icon rounds up 12 classical crossover highlights André Rieu recorded for various labels now owned by Universal. There are several classical pieces (a Strauss medley, "Radetzky March"), but there are also pop standards given a symphonic spin ("What a Wonderful World," "Send in the Clowns," "Amazing Grace") and even the New Orleans R&B staple "When the Saints Go Marching In," showcasing all of the sides of Rieu that have earned him a devoted following. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
