André Rieu, born in 1949, is a dutch composer and violinist. Akim Camara, born in 2001 in Germany, is a violinist, who began playing in the age of two years. And, the best, here, they are playing together, Rieu as conductor, and Akim as solist with the Johan Strauss Orchestra. Here, they are, at the Flying Dutchman concert, when Akim was 3 years old. Watch the video too, it’s kinda good ;)

Fabulous, xandi, I adore Andre Rieu, and this clip is just beautiful.
haha thanks Val. This boy is awesome, like the water action :)
ja, der hats drauf :)
Respekt vor André Rieu: er spricht hervorragend Deutsch und er kann serh gut mit Kindern umgehen :)
Und der Kleine, also Akim, ist echt drollig – hat Spaß gemacht, den Clip anzuschauen :)
Danke. Hab ich mir auch gedacht, top! :)
I grew up playing the piano and violin, and singing, and as much as I love Joshua Bell, André is my favorite simply because he understands how to bring classical music to the masses. I still haven’t seen him, though. Each time he comes to San Diego the cheapest ticket is a couple hundred dollars. I’ll watch him on KPBS or YouTube and save the money.
Thanks Russel. Like his music since I’ve been young too. Yeah, about over 100 $ for one concert is very much!
The first one I’ve seen this morning, and I need to go no further … Winner!
yeah, really. The boy is stunning great and also funny ;)
