Violinist and conductor Andre Rieu has been dubbed a latter-day waltz king, an appellation born out by his many top-selling recordings -- 100 Years of Strauss, for example, or From Holland with Love - Waltzes I've Saved for You. But in Fiesta, Rieu forgoes the oom-pah-pah of the waltz in favor of a program of beloved melodies from around the world. "Funiculi funicula," "La Vie en Rose," "The Canals of Amsterdam," "Hava Nagila," "Sirtaki (Zorba's Dance)," and "Auld Lang Syne" (in a rousing rendition with the Coriovallum Pipe Band) are some of the traditional tunes heard here. There is also a pair of classical favorites -- Bizet's overture to Carmen and Rossini's to William Tell -- and a waltz or two added in for good measure. But they are the exceptions. Rieu is clearly intent on celebrating songs, if you will, of celebration here, demanding spirited performances out of his Johann Strauss Orchestra. Fans of his blockbuster Romantic Moments, an album of tender melodies by Mozart, Chopin, and other classical composers, should take a breath: The tempos of Fiesta are faster, but Rieu is as engaging as ever.
