Anthony Hopkins Attends Concert, Chokes Up When He Hears A Waltz He Composed Himself 55 Years Ago
Before he became Dr. Hannibal Lecter , Nixon, Picasso and countless others personas Sir Anthony Hopkins immortalized on film, it’s a little known fact that he was an aspiring composer. More than 50 years ago he composed a Waltz which up until recently no one had ever heard.
However, 4 years ago he decided to send his hand written sheet music to Andre Rieu, a world famous violinist and conductor and ask if he would play it with his orchestra. Mr. Rieu was stunned by the beauty of the piece as I’m sure all of you will be when you hear it. This is remarkable.
