The classical music world is so snobbish.
It is a real piece of art if you can make a waltz sound like it is the easiest piece of music to play, because it's really not.
Where would I be without Johann Strauss's beautiful 'Blue Danube?' Without this piece of music I wouldn't be the man I am today. It's a tune that brings out the emotion in everyone and makes them want to waltz.
It is my personality alone that has brought back the waltz and made it a global craze.
The waltz can be sad and at the same time uplifting. You have to see life from both sides, and the waltz encapsulates that. If you're in my audience you give yourself to me and the waltz will grab you.
The waltz is a very important part of my life. It's a very important way for me to express my positiveness, bringing humor to the world.
