Released: November 24, 2017: AMORE. Natasha’s Waltz: when my wife Marjorie was pregnant with our second baby, we saw the world famous movie: “War and Peace”. One of the main roles, played by Henri Fonda, was the very sympathetic Pierre, who cannot understand why people have to make war. Suddenly both of us knew the name for our new baby: Pierre! So funnily enough Pierre was named after Henri Fonda!  And then some time ago our eldest son Marc, who is a great admirer of film scores, suggested I play the beautiful Natasha’s Waltz from this movie.
Highland Cathedral: This year we celebrate our 30 years of the Joh. Strauss Orchestra. For three decades we’ve been making music and traveling the whole world together like one big family. We share our thoughts and feelings, the happy as well as the sad ones. Sixteen years ago our clarinettist Manoe Konings became very ill, she had breast cancer. Her will to survive and to continue making music together with all of us gave her the courage and strength to overcome this illness. The magnificent song “Highland Cathedral” in which Manoe plays the solo bagpipe, is a tribute to my orchestra and the love we all feel for one another.
