Hallo dear Andre
Thank you for visiting South Africa again! It was just wonderful and although we travelled 1000 km to see you, it was every km worth while. Can't wait for next year. My sister jand I went to the concert in Durban and I cannot keep her quiet!!. It was an extraordinary experience for her as it was her first concert with such a fantastic symphony orchestra !
Hola andre, me da mucho gusto que regreses con nosotros, y a mi nieto mas, espero que lo dejen entrar y siiii gracias mil por la invitacion, ya tenemos nuestros boletos para el dia once, cuidate muchov y sigue tan alegre como siempre.

Dear Andre: I very much enjoyed your interview with Nick Ferrari this evening.
In your live/onscreen performances your heart-warming soulful eyes and the union with your beautiful violin portray your incredible empathy and charisma. But even without the visual effects, the words and sound of your evocative voice seem to come from deep within your heart and soul and transport the listener to another world.
I loved your choice of music. Ravels Mother Goose would be a marvellous piece for you and the JSO to include in your repertoire. It is beautiful.
Barbers Adagio for Strings has so much meaning for me. It was my partner's most beloved piece. The last time I played it to him was when he was dying in October just gone. Thank you so much for including it in your interview.
You said you are a severe but fair boss. I have worked with many high profile people and I am sure what you would call severe I would c all professional, but you also build caring, friendship and love into your relationship. You could not spend the endless hours in each others company without believing that your are in union working towardsa joint goal of enjoyment and perfection for yourselves and your audience.
Regarding your critics, remember: "Those who can-do. Those who can't-criticize". "Benjamin Disraeli said "It is much easier to be critical than to be correct!"
I would like to end by saying that you said Marjorie is the bedrock of your life; but for her, it must be wonderful to be loved by you. It is love that will keep your ship firmly anchored and keep the chain links firmly entwined!
Once again, thank you for everything that you share with the world and sorry to have rambled on for so long.
God zegene u en al mijn liefde.
Vanavond met veel plezier geluisterd naar het Classic FM interview.
Jammer dat het niet lukt om naar de O2 te komen.
Een fantastisch concert gewenst, en vooral: heel veel plezier!
I just saw your interview with Sonia Kruger and I enjoyed every part of it very much. I have sent it on to friends.
Your wonderful personality comes through so well as does your detailed attention to your performances. Great pictures of concerts, back stage, your home and city.
All in all, this is a great interview, maybe the best yet!!
Have a wonderful break at home or vacation away with Marjorie! Cheers and much love.
Lovely to hear your interview on Classic FM which finished an hour ago. It's so wonderful to get to know you a bit better and to know your likes and dislikes. Yes, you are definitely anyone's hearthrob, young or old, who is really interested in you and your music. Everything you said is so true and I keep telling everyone what a charming and down to earth person you are from the moment I met you at the Royal Albert Hall last year. I sincerly hope and pray that God will continue to shower his holy blessings upon you and that you achieve your desire to celebrate your 120th birthday as the world needs someone like you to uplift us from our moments of unhappiness, sadness and lonliness. Music is a gift from God and should be loved by all. It's an inspiration.........
Looking forward to seeing you again at the O2 in April.
Lots of love.........
Hello it's me again, I was just reading messages in the Guest Book and i think it's just so sweet what every one has to say about Andre and the JSO, and also Marjorie and Marc as well, as Marjorie plays a really big part in Andre's concerts, isn't it wonderful to be so loved, what a lucky family you are. Love to everyone. Barb
I just watched one of your interviews and you sure did have a scary moment in South Africa, but thank goodness everything turned out alright as i really don't think any of your fans would want anything to happen to their favourite performer. A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have, and we are so lucky we have you and your orchestra. Andre i really think you are a legend in your own time and you have a beautiful soul, you did it your way and you are the best, I don't listen to any other classical music but yours, what would we do without you. See you soon in Toronto i hope, love you blue eyes. Barb
well done andre. moonlight has again topped the classic fm album charts for the 18th week with 6 others also in the top forty. i also heard your interview with nick ferrari and enjoyed it very much. i like your philosophy on life and wish the rest of the world would follow. music is the international language. my best anita.
Just listened to your great interview with Nick Ferrara on Classic F.M.What a beautiful outlook you have on life.
You said that you love playing at the Albert Hall, well I wish you would one day play at our fantastic SAGE in Gateshead, as it it the most wonderful music centre,
Only 22 days till Newcastle upon tyne Metro Arena.Have a good rest at home and see you April 19th
Dear Andre, Just to say thank you for the lovely interview I have just listened to on Classic FM in the UK. It was brilliant. Can't wait to see you on 21st April at the MEN Manchester. Take Care All of you . Kind regards Ruth
I am a new listener to your music, and I must say that it is absolutely out of this world. I have watched some of your dvd's with an Aunt who thinks you are wonderful, and I have to agree with her. Your smile lights up the whole stage, keep playing and keep smiling.
God Bless you and the JSO.
We two couples from Cornwall England drove through snow and the very bad winter weather in our motor homes to see you all at the New Years Day concert at Koln. Thank you and all the orchestra and singers for a wonderful experience.
We wish you all good health and good luck with your concerts this year and hope to see you all again soon.
From your friends in England
Fred & Diane and Simon & Chris
