Nearly everyone has listened to, or even sung, “Amazing Grace” in their lifestyle, and there have been many moving renditions of “Amazing Grace” throughout the centuries. But, of the recognizable performances, most have all been vocalized versions, and they usually bring out some strong emotion in all of us. Not this time. This time, it’s better.
One of the greatest violinists and conductors of all time, André Rieu, has put together a symphonic version of this classic that will move you like never before. Performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York, the performance pulls at your very core from the beginning.
As this arrangement begins, you hear the sound of a lone piccolo, and you can’t help but be drawn in. Yet, while the soloist here is amazing, the piece only gets better: it goes on to feature André Rieu on his violin, and then slowly adds other instruments, including a bagpipe.
Although he was primarily known as the Waltz King of latter-days who specialized in light classics and Viennese salon music, Rieu clearly can take any piece of music and make it magnificent. This video shows the sheer perfection and skill and only the most talented people can pull off. Watch this video of his version of “Amazing Grace,” and you will feel it deep in your soul.
