Sensual, rhythmic and emotionally stirring, No. 98 is Ravel’s Boléro, a famous one movement orchestral piece, originally commissioned as a ballet by a Russian ballerina (Ida Rubenstein). The video below is of Andre Rieu conducting Bolero at the Telstra Dome in Melbourne. Whilst Rieu has been criticised by some as being too ‘popular’, debussycat applauds him for bringing classical music to a wider audience.
