Hi dear Andre,
Today I see there’s even more excitement stirring in the World of Andre Rieu! In Prague, Budapest and Vienna to be precise Andre! They wait, anticipating what they know will be a spectacular, enchanting evening of some of the World's most exquisite compositions from Opera, Classics and Pop arranged and performed in your own unique style alongside your own magnificent JSO; humour and romance; and Waltzing in the aisles! All accompanied, of course Andre, by your handsome charming self, spinning tales of magic and 'life' to captivate us mixed with flashes of your mischievous humour that I absolutely love. The one thing I know when I enter the Arena is inside there’s music, romance, excitement and joy and I never want it to end! Thank you Andre! Love and respect always Viv xx

Beste André, Als kind was ik al fan v.d. walsen van Strauss. Voor de bevalling van mijn zoon in 1981 luisterde ik naar een Strauss casette. Toen ik enige jaren later een optreden van jou zag op tv was ik gelijk verkocht. Sindsdien droomde ik ervan om een concert bij te kunnen wonen en afgelopen juli 2016 lukte het me eindelijk een ticket te kopen voor je concert van 8/1 in Brussel. In oktober werd er een hersentumor bij me geconstateerd. Ik was bang dat mijn wens om jou en je fantastische orkest live te zien optreden niet meer zou uitkomen. Op 6 dec jl werd ik geopereerd en God zij dank zal ik er zondag bij kunnen zijn. Dit concert is voor mij een wonder op meer dan één manier. Ik hoop de gelegenheid te krijgen je persoonlijk te bedanken voor de vreugde die je mij al jaren brengt. XXX

Buongiorno André, per prima cosa auguro un sereno 2017 (anche a Marjorie e famiglia)ricco di splendidi successi come sempre. Immagino che la mancanza del bravo Ruud si farà sentire soprattutto nelle prime uscite in concerto ma, con la JSO, siete molto uniti e vi farete forza dandola anche alla famiglia di Ruud.Come sempre la vostra musica continuerà ad entrare nel cuore di tutti .
Ho ricevuto da poco il DVD di Efteling (con unito nuovamente l'omaggio del CD e ringrazio ), è veramente meraviglioso (da sogno ) sono rimasti incantati anche i miei 5 nipotini . Certo è che ogni volta che in un DVD appare Ruud col suo sorriso e la sua allegria viene e verrà sempre un po' di tristezza .

I am sure you know that there will be millions of people around the world thinking of you all on that day., the music will be an enormous help to you and the JSO especially at this time.
Safe travels and see you in March.

Hi Andre and JSO

What a Contrast!!
Watched your DVD New Year's Eve in Vienna(2005) on New Year's eve here in Australia( We've all grown a few white hairs since then)!!! and thoroughly enjoyed it.
However, next day was the showing on TV of the Annual Vienna New Year's Day concert, how can you compare the emotions of musicians, playing almost identical music to you but with such long faces!!! The only person who seemed to be enjoying himself was their new young conductor Gustavo Dudamel
Safe travelling and success in 2017

Dear Andre,
So very saddened to learn of Ruud's passing. Thoughts and prayers are with Lin and her family and with you and your family as well as the orchestra family.
Over the holidays my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed your new DVD, "Christmas in London" and "December Lights" plus all your Christmas CD's. You bring Christmas to us each year and we thank you. Your new CD,"Falling in Love" is totally beautiful. My favourite selection is "Can't Help Falling In Love". It is absolutely the best!
All good wishes as you and JSO continue on with life in Amsterdam providing us all with comfort and joy. Health, happiness again, and safety to you all in your upcoming tour. Much love.

Cher André, en cette nouvelle année 2017, je vous adresse ainsi qu'à tout le JSO, votre famille tous mes meilleurs vœux et avec beaucoup de courage à tous pour reprendre vos concerts samedi prochain. Toutes mes pensées vous accompagneront sans oublier Ruud qui sera sûrement proche de vous de là où il est parti bien trop tôt ainsi qu'à Lin et ses enfants !!
Bien affectueusement à tous.

Cher André, avec un peu de retard pour cause de maladie je viens vous souhaiter une heureuse année 2017 avec la reprise des concerts des samedi et dimanche à Bruxelles ou je vais venir. J'espère que pour vous et le JSO la reprise ne sera pas trop difficile avec le décès de Ruud qui m'a beaucoup affectée comme tous ceux et celles qui assistent à vos concerts. Je n'oublie pas dans mes voeux le JSO et tous les solistes.
Je vous envoie mille baisers.

Hi dear Andre,
How lovely to see the beautiful melody from LOVE IN VENICE 'VIENI SUL MAR' on your FB page! It reminds me of my beloved Oma who taught it to me and we’d sing it together when I was little Andre. Love in Venice is such a beautiful and romantic Album. I love all your little Video Clips too, Andre, on your VIDEO page. I well remember when you built the magnificent Venetian Stage Set on your beloved Vrijthof in preparation for your Summer Home Concert. The World was amazed as the construction took shape and hearts beat faster knowing they’d be with you on the magical Square for enchanting evenings of love, beautiful music and your own unique mischievous humour which I love so much Andre.. What magic will Maastricht hold in 2017 Andre?! Happy day. Love and respect always Viv xx

Good Morning Dearest Andre it's cold an grey at 4c my gardens full of shouting birds as I busily fill all the feeders an put out a warm bath, it's great to be home to see all this activity and a few spring flowers. At the same time 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas is surrounded by glorious uplifting an wonderful music from your brilliant Orkest, a great favourite Forever Vienna provides piece after piece of spectacular yet soothing music gladdening my heart. Throughout my cruise your wonderful music gave great happiness to me an my friends an I made many new fans who heard your music and were enchanted by it wanting more information on this Great Musician an his wonderful Orkest, more memories to treasure plus special thoughts of a great trombonist. Lots of Love Lady Margaret.

It was with profound sadness that i learned of the untimely death of our dear friend Ruud.He enjoyed life to the full. He had a great sense of humour and was a outstanding musician.He will be sadly missed.
My thoughts are with his Wife and family.
May he rest in peace.

Hi dear Andre,
I hope you are all feeling a little more able to 'pick up the threads of life' again and that Ruud's love and admiration for you will enable you all to create your musical magic by holding him close in your hearts and performing 'for him' and 'in his memory'. I know we in the UK cannot wait to see you all and send you our love and encouragement with the biggest rapturous welcome and outpouring of love that you have ever seen or heard Andre! I read a nice report today on your forthcoming Concert in Slovenia saying how happy they are you are going to share your heart and music with them. Andre you often say "Decisions should be taken with the heart not the mind, not just in music but also in life" and I couldnt agree with you more. With love and respect always Viv xx

To Andre from Jack Olsson, aged 93, Canberra, Australia
Christmas Eve in Canberra- and the joy of your Christmas Spectacular
Dear Andre, some time ago I was given one of your DVD’s which I found so beautifully presented with a mixture of humour and music that I purchased more including “Andre Rieu on Holiday”.
In setting up the Christmas tree this year I decided to invite a few neighbours in for a pre-Christmas drink and having sat them down put on your DVD.
As the scene opened with snow lightly falling and the beautiful nativity scene we heard your beautiful orchestra playing carols while young children with candles dressed as Angels moved slowly around. It took our breath away. It was magic – All of my guests put down their glasses and sat back to enjoy. On Christmas day I put your DVD on again to the delight of us all.
Thank you Andre for this beautiful DVD, and may I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
