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

This is beautiful. I’m fascinated by the fear many artists have about their talent and creativity – it’s almost easier to just ignore what we were born to do and what makes us beautiful and unique than to be humiliated by the possible shame of failure.

Before the Academy award-winning Welsh star Anthony Hopkins became an actor he was a musician but was too afraid to hear his waltz played at the time.

In 2014, Sir Anthony Hopkins watched Dutch violinist Andre Rieu bring the waltz the actor had written as a nineteen-year old soaring into life at the prestigious Belverdere Palace in Vienna.
