One of the nicest people I’ve worked with, André Rieu & His Johann Strauss Orchestra recently performed “And The Waltz Goes On” in Maastricht, composed by Sir Anthony Hopkins. Yes, THAT Anthony Hopkins. The Silence Of The Lambs, The Mask of Zorro, Nixon, and Amistad actor who wrote this piece of music almost 50 years ago.
Hopkins was a musician before taking on the acting world. He graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and this must have been a superb night for him to see, and hear, his own composition being performed.
