    I wonder if a few nervous musicians worried about missing a note in front of Hannibal Lecter…

    I saw this a while ago and it BLEW ME AWAY. My favorite thing is how the audience gets really into it! It’s really a lovely piece.

    Cannot stop playing this fabulous waltz.
    Like John Sheahan, I wish Sir Anthony Hopkins could pick up a violin and pay this waltz with André Rieu!
