It is an open air concert in Andre Rieu's home town (in summer of 2005) in Maastricht (NL) and has wonderful song selections from waltzes to classical pieces, from Broadway to polkas. With great atmosphere of concert, it returns to an open air party with lots of joy and beautiful music. People are dancing and singing in the streets along with Andre Rieu and Johann Strauss Orchestra.
This DVD is 16:9 in screen format with some bonus features on disc. Andre speaks in Dutch, but subtitles are available. On the Other hand audio is Dolby5.0 (please see comments below) and Dolby2.0. Soloists are Susan Erens, Carla Maffioletti, Carmen Monarcha and The Platin Tenors. As extra features it has a 25 minutes TV special by local tv and three extra tracks namely My Father's Favorite, Halleluja, Milord. Also there is a 2 minutes rapid motion video showing preparations for the concert.
I strongly recommend this DVD to all fans and starters of this genre. You will have great joy and you will find yourself watching this DVD over and over again. Also I can recommend this DVD as a gift for your friends and loved-ones, you won't be disappointed and (believe me) they will adore your choice..."
Total joy everytime!

"This is my 3rd. Andre dvd, I love the first 2 and did not think they could be matched. But the homecoming is 100% perfect. From beginning to end I feel like singing and danceing!
I watch it often with my grandchildren,they will dance to it the whole time it is on. They love it as much as I do.
This dvd will put you in a happy mood!"

"Not certain..but i believe Andre's latest DVD "Songs from my Heart" that I purchased from his website is "Homecoming" (USA)version. Every time he puts out a DVD..i keep saying..this is the best one yet..well..here we go again..there are 28 tracks on this DVD..for me..every one was enjoyable..he performed this in his hometown Maastrich. He has 3 tenors as guest's..they are fabulous..and when they perform with Andre's 3 sopranos..unbeatable..when Carmen does "Song of Vilja"..your heart will melt..for all the Andre fans..this DVD is a must for your collection..I hope the USA company putting out "Homecoming" has improved in quality..seems in the past they have not been up to par with the European versions."
The Master of the "Romantic Happening"

"Since Woodstock, Rock and Roll has had its super events, ie. Happenings. Luciano Pavarotti was famous for them for opera lovers. Andre Rieu is the master of Happenings for Romantics, people who love contemporary and light classical music in the romantic vein.
"The Homecoming" is Andre's best happening yet. Here he is showing his love for Maastricht his hometown. His productions in Dublin and Tuscany Italy were outstanding but they were in other lands than from which he sprang. His use of the town itself and its town square as his location add to this love affair.
It differs from his other productions in that the majority of the audiance is from this town rich in over 2000 years of history. Andre's selection of songs not only brings out their cultural loves but their passionate love of Maastricht. Being from the United States I am not use to cities with City Anthems and very, very few with multiple love songs sung to them.
There is far more audience participation in the songs presented with thousands of people matching the vocal performers word for word.
This is a MUST for all romantics let alone all Andre Rieu fans!"
