Andre Rieu has recently recorded as one number on a CD a march written by a cousin of my grandfather ("Blaze Away" by Abe Holzmann, http://www.amazon.com/Andre-Rieu-Collection-2-CD/dp/B000F2CAAQ/ref=sr_1_1/102-1327662-8628929?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1189427026&sr=1-1). This piece has previously been recorded by more traditional, serious groups. I do not know much about Rieu except that he is popular and seems very commercial. My question is: should my family and I feel thrilled or slimed?
