And the Waltz Goes On - Anthony Hopkins 

Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time

Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.

That was beautiful

I cried a few tears and felt better about humanity’s endeavors.

That as absolutely spectacular and ornate. I as well was brought to tears

Screw the article links for the moment: this is too extraordinary not to reblog right now.

Hopkins’s reactions as it plays through would have been worth the entire price of admission. And whoever did the orchestration should be congratulated for not going for anything small. (But then Rieu’s shindigs always lean toward the spectacular anyway: “small” would be out of place.)

…Whew.

Because Sir Hopkins wasn’t already a complete badass.  This is gorgeous and exquisite.

Okay. I’m game.

I am a little wary, but why not. 

okay I kinda am in love with this notion.

I’m in, if only for a recipe.
