Margriet's Exclusive Interview With André Rieu

And Tomorrow, Just Like Always, To The Local Grocers!!

André Rieu, the charming violinist from Maastricht, celebrates this year his 60th Birthday and starts his 30th year on stage. In those thirty years, a lot has happened. He is adored throughout the world, but in spite of everything, he remains himself. He gave “Margriet”, a Dutch weekly womens magazine, an exclusive interview.

Thank You to John for his hard work on this. He spent an entire day translating it for us, and his is the only English version of this interview available ~ It's a long one!! And thank you to Ineke and Benny for sending it to us to be translated ...

What a fantastic interview and article. Again, so many thanks for the translation, John.
You (and Bobbie) are our treasures. Don't know what we'd do without you.

Cheers,

This is a delightfully candid interview. He allows us to see a little more of his devotion to his family. I learn more about him with every interview I read. I didn't know he could sew too???!!!

Thank you John, Ineke and Sue once again for all you do for us. ~Kay

John did work very hard on this one! It's a long interview, but André seemed to be more open with a lot of his answers, so we thought it a good one to put on here for the fans to read.

John worked ALL DAY translating this for us!! We can't thank him
enough for what he does ...

I, too, would like to add my thanks to Sue and Ineke and particularly John. Without you guys we would miss so much André information.

Okay, if you all have to be so humble....How about a BIGGGGGG HUGGGGGG for everyone!
GREAT JOB!! I like the buying sugar part very much! Like asking Marjorie for the peeled tomatoes in the past. What a sweet couple!

Ineke Holland said...

What I liked most in the interview was the part about super emancipated Marjorie. We know there is a strong woman behind every artist man!! And YES!!! Sue, Sonja, Jann, John and us, we are a good TEAM!! We'll meet again in Maastricht. I look forward to that!
