Bonjour Monsieur Rieu,
Comment allez-vous ? Moi, je vais très très bien. Quel thème sera pour Le Concert de Maastricht 2017 ? Moi, je dirais : A Tribute to Ruud Merx. Bonne continuation de concert en Allemagne. Auf Wiedersehen. Alexandre Caron. Wargnies Le Grand. Haut-de-France. France.
Bonjour Monsieur Rieu,
Thank you for all the lovely photos, I love to see what you all are up to. Really looking forward to seeing you in Birmingham, I do hope you will be back with us for Christmas, it just wouldn't be the same with out you.
Take care love to you all
Thank you very much for your new CD "Falling in Love". Even though I love all your soloists and singers I am very fond of your instrumental works. It is so beautiful to hear the violin play the solo piece. And you play most beautiful.
Dear Andre & the JSO. So very sad to learn that Ruud is no longer with us. Such a fun guy! What a loss!The concert in Liverpool was great, as usual We will be in Maastricht again for our 6th visit. We love your city. We want to know why you never play Ti Amo in any of the concerts - we';ve been to 10 in total. Our DVD from Romantic Paradise is the only one we can find it on and we've played it so much that it now won't play Part 2. Our visit this year will be just prior to our Diamond Wedding celebrations WE WOULD JUST LOVE TO HEAR TI AMO. It would complete our celebrations. Love to Pierre - he is a really nice guy - have spoken to him twice. Have you included the Isle of Man in your total nationalities?
Hi dear Andre,
Thank you for the NewsPhotos. Its such a joy joining you on Tour through your images Andre. I hope Gary and the Girls got to have 'a spin' in the Lamborghini in Stuttgart! Great to see the fun in the Regensburg Winter Wonderland Andre. A snowball fight seems a perfect way to relax and expend some excess energy too after a late enchanted evening on the stage engaging with your German Friends. What a nice surprise also to see Martine, Vincenzo and Eric's big beaming smiles enjoying the Snow. Love the stunning image of you too Andre standing in the midst of the icy runway wilderness waiting to board your Jet. Looks very cold indeed! Thank you too dear Agnes, Eric, Gosia, Martine and Vincenzo for their lovely images. Now a little ‘home time’! With love and respect always Viv xx
Good Morning Dearest Andre its 5c with grey skies, birds twittering an happily feeding, a few Primroses add a little colour an 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas sees buds on the Crocus an the Daffodils push through. I sit with my friend whose healths improving each day taking tea wrapped in warm loving music from your fantastic Dreaming Cd. It's been a harrowing few weeks but the wonders of your magical music gave hope, comfort an strength.No matter what the crisis Andre you never fail to make ones life better, what is it in your Music that does this?An enormous thank you for the lovely photos of Stuttgart an Regensberg, I think Gary would look perfect in the Lamborghini an I'd loved to have thrown snowballs an built a snowman with your wonderful Orkest.Lots of Love Lady Margaret
Merci pour toutes vos photos et nouvelles de vos concerts, je vois que les paysages de neige ont fait des heureux pour les batailles de boules de neige!
Très beaux cars André, votre orchestre a tout le confort pour voyager! Il le mérite!
Bonne continuation à tous et bonne musique pour réjouir vos fans et votre public!
Moi j'attends Paris pour vous revoir avec grand plaisir!
So Andre, Are you still planning to tour the USA this year? It's difficult to plan for your visit if we don't know where and when you are coming. Please, a little information. Even the time of year would be helpful.
So very sorry that you had to cancel your concert in Scotland just before xmas due to the very unfortunate circumstances, Our heart felt sympathies go to all affected,
It good that you are coming in March. It would be amazing to hear your orchestra sing and play the Scottish folk song Loch Lomond which became the signature song of the Scottish band Run Rig. it has become a very popular song played at the end of the night at parties all over Scotland. It would be fantastic if you could include it when you come here in March,
Love and best wishes
I do wish that you'll be returning to the USA, that I may someday be so lucky to be able to see your concert live.
I watch your concerts every time I can on MPT(Maryland Public Television)
I just watched(1/15/17) your Maastricht Concert "Waltzing Forever" on MPT here in Maryland,USA.
It is so great that you support Puplic Television & allow your concerts to get televised.
So much is learned & Enjoyed on Puplic Televion, that So Many
(myself included) would Never Be Able to See.
I do wish that 1 day I too will be able to be sitting at 1 of your concerts entranced by your music in person, as I do when watching you on the tv.
When I was bullied at work your music got me through and now I have a new job I listen to your music as I travel to work and it makes me very happy. Looking forward to two weeks holiday in Holland and coming to your concert in July.
I wish you all well in 2017 and hope you all have a healthy and enjoyable new year. please come back to Leeds as I am unable to travel and you and the JSO made my year last year when you came to visit . it was fantastic.
Ruud and family in our thoughts. X Denise.
Ik wens u allen goed in 2017 en hoop dat jullie allemaal een gezond en aangenaam Nieuwjaar hebben. Gelieve terug te komen naar Leeds als ik ben niet in staat om te reizen en u en de JSO mijn jaar vorig jaar wanneer u maakte op bezoek kwam. het was fantastisch.
Ruud en familie in onze gedachten. X Denise.

Good Morning Dearest Andre damp an grey a little warmer at 6c It's bath day this is the 3rd filling of warm water with the garden full of assorted birds playing chasing an preening my 2 beautiful Magpies Andre an Marjorie are tending each other on the fence. For 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas it's heaven taking tea with your glorious music from Magic of the Violin playing in the background, how its enriching my heart an spirit, The Rose, Winter an Meditation so overpoweringly beautiful an enchanting played to absolute perfection, I gasp in awe an wonder at the feelings you generate with each note. With a violin in your hands Andre you really are one of the Greatest Musicians in the world.Have a lovely time at home simply being a husband an grandpa. Lots of Love Lady Margaret.
To dear Andre, your family and members of the JSO, I was so very sorry to hear of the passing of Ruud - such a dreadful shock - my heart goes out to his family as well as you. Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to attend the rescheduled concert in March but I so look forward to being able to attend another concert in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime thank you for the joy of your music which I can enjoy on our Sky Channel programme here in the UK. Thank you for the tears and goosebumps listening to your wonderful music. Love and best wishes to you all.
Dear Andre &family;Please accept heartfelt condolences on the loss of your
trombonist.Iwas very sadened to read of your loss and hope
that you &JSO;are soon back making tour fantastic music.
I wanted to say thank you. Grandma loved your music so much and when she was well she use to go and see you in concert and it brought her so much happiness. In the past 3 years she suffered 2 strokes and all through it we would play her your music. Sadly she has just passed away but once again during her last few hours we played her your music and I truly believe it helped bring her some peace.
Your music has been one of the few things she has been able to continuously recognise during her illnesses and I can't thank you enough for the happiness it has brought her.
I don't know if you are looking for music to play, may I suggest a tune called 'The Gypsy Fiddler' by Raphael (probably not the Ninja Turtle). The version I have is by Ron Goodwin and his Orchestra. I think it would suit your passionate playing style. Apologies if you have already included it on a DVD or CD, I have many of yours, but may have missed it. Perhaps other fans could also suggest music which you might like to include.
Looking forward to seeing you with my fiancée Carole at the Manchester venue in March.
Good Morning Dearest Andre its 1c grey an miserable but the beautiful rousing music from your In Love with Maastricht Cd an the sight of so many pretty feeding birds an chasing squirrels lifts the spirits an gladdens the heart of 'The Lady in the Red Jacket' at Many Arenas. I have a companion to care for who's sharing this wonderful moment, feels like dancing but for now until he's stronger is singing along with the enchanting tracks. What a change the combination of medication an your Glorious Music have bought about him in the past week, your Music feeds the heart soul an body a prescription for a good life. Also thank you enormously for the lovely photos of Kempton your musicians have massive talents, Stephanie brilliant. Enjoy a wonderful family weekend. Lots of Love Lady Margaret.
Dragi i poštovani gospodine Andre, s velikom radiš?u do?ekala sam vijest da dolazite u Zagreb. I to baš u vrijeme mog ro?endana. No, ushi?enje je kratko trajalo jer nisam u mogu?nosti kupiti karte za Vaš koncert. Rado bih povela ili svog sina, koji tako?er,svira violinu, ili bih povela svoju svekrvu koja ima 88 godina. Upravo Vas je ona 'otkrila' na You tubu. ?esto pregledavam Vaše.koncerte pa si zamišljam kako li Vas je tek milina slušati uživo. Želim Vam obilje.dobrog zdravlja da nas još dugo možete tako lijepo opijati svojim virtuoznim izvedbama biranih melodija. S iskrenim divljenjem i poštovanjem
