His first CD “Strauss & Co” was released in 1994. That is how his success story began that continued thanks to further albums and performances. Rieu conducts in the style of Johann Strauss, that means that he uses his violin and not the conductor’s baton.

Sting: October 2, 1951

Sting was born Gordon Sumner in Newcastle upon Tyne in England. After he was given a guitar, he became a passionate musician. 

The singer and songwriter founded the band The Police with other two members. Their first song “Roxane”, however, did not arise interest. When The Police started performing in various clubs in the US, they gained the attention they had longed for and released “Roxane” a second time. The album “Outlandos d’Amour” even was a hit in the British and American charts and “Regatta de Blanc” earned them a Grammy Award. The most known song The Police ever released was “Every Breath You Take”. 

The Police disbanded in 1984 and Sting created his own albums like “Dream of the Blue Turtles” and songs like “Englishman in New York” became chart hits.
