Yesterday we went not far from our home to the famous David Austin Roses looking for another rose for our garden I suddenly saw one called Simply The Best and in another bed was Crème de la Crème and I immediately thought of you Andre, you could be given both titles they fit you well, and as my Husband and I walked around the roses in the beautiful sunshine I found myself humming the song the Rose. knowing you are a keen gardener I wondered if you were asked to name a rose what you name would give it I myself think it would be The lady Marjorie and the colour Blush Pink. Andre I am sure you are still enjoying your garden in it's late summer colour Take care in Brazil

I love your FB Post of you 'giving a Violin lesson to 'Wolf' for his Dutch Musical Premiere 'Sprookjesboom de Musical: a Wonderful Music Feast' at the EFTLING! He couldn't have a better highly professional tutorial than from the most gifted and exquisite Violinist ANDRE RIEU! The last time I saw Wolf of course was in your unforgettable Concert DVD 'ANDRE RIEU IN WONDERLAND' when Brian Dickerson, with his magnificent Basso Profundo voice, singing as the Wizard, 'disappeared' poor Stephanie and put the WOLF in her place! My Nephews absolutely love that DVD and its the first thing they ask for as they walk through the door! They also love, as do I, the SIX QUACKIN QUACKERS and their Florentine March! Have a great day dear Maestro. God bless. Love Viv xx
A busy day ahead Dearest Andre as I make my preparations to travel to Oostende very early in the morning.Already 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas has her box of Andre Cds an Dvds ready to put in the car, the most vital part of any trip as its totally impossible to have a day without your glorious music,they will be greatly needed to help with the recovery of my dear friend following her operation.Even now I feel energized and immensely happy as the wonderful music from Forever Vienna lights my home with warm sunshine, music puts a zest an sparkle into life, nothing is boring or tiresome. Every piece you play Andre is given a different meaning, one feels the awe an wonder of the notes - other musicians do not have this fantastic gift. Stay safe an well. Lots of Love Lady Margaret
Vous êtes sûrement en répétitions pour vos prochains concerts au Brésil! Je vous imagine danser la samba tous ensemble pour vous détendre pendant vos pauses musicales!
Ce serait super sympa de nous envoyer une petite vidéo! et d'avoir de vos nouvelles sur votre site!
Bon courage à vous tous! Vous êtes les meilleurs!
Merci pour tout ce que vous nous offrez pendant vos concerts!
Un petit bonjour à mes amies fans que j'ai rencontrées à Maastricht!
Bisous ensoleillés au parfum de France!
I look forward to the day when the orchestra plays some haunting Celtic music such as 'Dark Isle' and 'Rowan Tree.' Would also like to see some tribute paid to the Northumbrian Small Pipes with say 'Sally Wheatley' and 'Hexhamshire Lass'.
I've enjoyed watching the concerts (those posted in Youtube on your channel). I hope to be able to attend one of your concerts in person.
Dear Maestro, we attended the final concert in Maastricht and despite the early downpour of rain it did not spoil our backstage tour with Pierre. Your son is a great credit to you. He was so happy to answer our questions and pose for photographs... The power of your music and the JSO brought the sun out for the evening concert. My wife particularly enjoyed it as she entered hospital for a heart operation the following week. Thankfully she is making a good recovery and is already looking forward to your christmas visit to the UK.
Continued good health to you and your family
Hi dear Andre,
Just recently, listening to your '100 JAHRE STRAUSS', which you released in tribute to the World's most illustrious 'Johann Strauss' on the 100th Anniversary of his passing, I 'fell in love' all over again with this gifted man's music, and your unmistakeable glorious revival of the treasured melodies. For Centuries the World, including our Queen Victoria, danced and 'partied' to pieces such as Perpetuum Mobile; G'schichten aus dem Wienerwald; Ohne Sorgen; Casanova; and your signature piece the beautiful, romantic AN DER SCHONEN BLAUEN DONAU. I'm sure Strauss looks down, smiles, and says a big thank you to his Protégé every day of your life! The World has never seen your equal dear Maestro! Have a wonderful day! God bless you and thank you. Love Viv xx
Breakfast on the terrace in glorious sunshine Dearest Andre, birds dancing an fighting for their place on the feeders, the flowers just opening their smiling faces an along with 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas we are all wrapped in the most enchantingly beautiful music from a Cd called Romantic Paradise, played by an extremely talented Dutchman on his violin accompanied by his wonderful JSO Orkest. What a brilliant way to start a day melody after melody enters the heart creating love an tranquility the more you play Andre the more magical the day, the senses reel music so pure an breathtakingly perfect spreads like golden honey around the world, an all who become a part of it realise a new an happier life is born, never stop playing WE NEED YOU Andre. Lots of Love Lady Margaret
Looking forward to your new DVD Maastrich 2014 ....I was at your Concert for the first time.....quite an experience!!! Lovely Maastricht......
Wish you a safe and wonderful trip to Sao Paulo. I wish some day you can come to Chile again, you have thousands of fans here too.
A big hug and the best for you
Hello Maestro of the music
We both hope that you and Marjorie and all of the JSO have had a good holiday, and no doubt you are all getting ready for the start of your new season of concerts. When are you going to do some more programmes for Sky Arts. We both hope that you all have a good flight to Brazil. We are waiting with eager anticipation for the dvd of the ten year concert, complete with the sneeze. Does anybody know if there is a cd of the Heidleburg concert and if so where can we get it
ho visto tre tuoi concerti e ti chiedo di nuovo perché non vieni una volta in Italia?
Di nuovo complimenti.
We watched your New York Memories DVD last evening, one of many we have....we really miss your concerts! Please come back to the U.S. soon. We need you here....
un régal prince des coeurs à visionner une multitude de photos vous concernant, toutes aussi belles les unes que les autres, craquant vous l'êtes sur toutes, du romantisme sur certaines, des sourires à volonté, vos mimiques qui nous font tant rire, de quoi satisfaire son coeur pour la journée sans oublier votre si jolie musique pour un duo de rêve !!!! passez une bonne journée, tendres baisers de votre cht'ite Danielle
Hi dearest Andre,
Its great to see your FB page recalling the 1994 CD release of ‘STRAUSS AND CO’! Not only is it an exquisite collection of some of the most stunning music like Thunder and Lightning Polka; The Third Man; Komm, Zigany; Vilja-Lied; Kunstlerleben; Im Weissen Rossl; Mei Muatterl war a Weanerin; but it also introduced your ‘Second Waltz’ to the World and started you on a ‘rocket to the stars’, Andre, making you a household name in the Netherlands and eventually the whole WORLD! You must be so proud of Marjorie too that she re-named Shostakovich’s ‘Waltz No.2: Jazz Suite No 2’ SECOND WALTZ and started you on a journey that was to result in you and your music being loved and admired the whole World over! You’re Simply the Best dear Maestro! God bless and lots of love Viv xx
Good Morning Dearest Andre on another lovely sunny day, we are being totally spoiled an 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas more so as I have glorious Andre music to accompany these lovely days, warm golden sunshine is poured all over me as you play so lovingly an exquisitely Moon River an with more wonderous melodies to come I know I will have boundless energy an great happiness to help me through my chores,as I must begin preparations to travel to Oostende on Thursday as I have to be in Ghent the next day to be with my friend for her eye operation. Everyone should start the day with a little Rieu Music then they know lifes going to be good. Already I feel excited as I know you an the wonderful JSO are creating fantastic music as you rehearse for Brazil. Lots of Love Lady Margaret
Dear Andre, I have had a wonderful weekend of nostalgia watching some of my really old videos i.e. Strauss & Co., and Strauss Party. Although the videos are not that long the music is wonderful. Very interesting to see some members of the JSO back then who are still with you. Your orchestra was smaller but just as fantastic. It was obvious to me that once this wonderful music was heard by the rest of the world that you would be "King Of The Waltz". Since then I have seen you in concert many times and each time gets better and better. Maastricht this year was amazing - see you at Wembley in December. Much love. Patricia
petit coucou dominical au parfum subtil de mon jardin vers vous mon prince adoré et vos aimés ! je viens de parcourir une palette de photos vous concernant et je dois dire que cette journée me donne le sourire, vous parcourez chaque endroit de mon antre, votre présence est bien là et votre musique enjolive mon coeur et me transporte vers votre si beau pays ! je vous souhaite une excellente journée, pensées vers vous et mes amies qui vous adorent tout autant, tendres baisers de votre cht'ite Danielle
I hope you and Marjorie have had a good holiday and lots of family days, not long now till your off on tour again. I'm counting down now till I see you in December at Birmingham I believe you should always have something to look forward to in life.
Take care dear Andre and love to you all
Another glorious sunny morning Dearest Andre only the birds on the feeders disturbing the the early peace of the day. Watching the sun spread its warmth 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Areas is wrapped in a warm blanket of the most magnificent melodies playing on your Moonlight Serenade Cd what goodness it puts in my heart an the beautiful Danube Love adds sparkle to my eyes as once again Andtre an the JSOs wonderful music make another day breathtaking an special, now 'I can take on the world.'Soon we are all to get an enormous treat when your Dvd of your 10yrs of Concerts on the Vrijthof is released an for those of us who were not there its going to be mind blowingly awesome having heard an seen a little of truely overwhelming music an events. I can't wait! Lots of Love Lady Margaret
