Romantic André Rieu derives his power from women

Unveiling in the largest newspaper in France:
Romantic André Rieu derives his power from women


MAASTRICHT - First a revelation: André Rieu derives his boundless energy from all the wonderful women who are opposite him during his appearances on the big stage. That is what he revealed today in an exclusive video interview with Le Parisien, the largest newspaper in France.

And no, his wife Marjorie is absolutely not jealous of all those ladies who worship the stand-alone violinist: the great Maastricht violinist had not been to bed with all his female fans, he says while smiling shyly as he grabs his cup of coffee: "That would be a lot of work."

Le Parisien recently was the guest at "House de Torentjes" (House of little Towers), which dates back to 1452, and is the castle of André Rieu, located on the Lage Kanaaldijk in Maastricht. Quite a chore, the newspaper lets its readers know. For more than a year the reporter has been trying to organize an interview of an hour, but the agenda of the Maastricht superstar -the most famous and popular living violinist- has been totally booked full, according to Le Parisien, and this was something simply not very easy to achieve.

Le Parisien did not only receive an interview, but also was given a tour of the castle (called de Torentjes, the small towers), its garden (including the pond with Koi carp), the Orangery and the studio.

André Rieu is a romantic, he says in French. "Everything I do is romantic. A romantic is someone who thinks he can change the world. He thinks he can change everything, anything that is possible.

It's just fabulous to be able to see and read this interview in French. The French are not many to be fans of André and when he comes in France the medias said nothing. It's sad. We can be happy that " Le Parisien" has made this report. Thanks John for the translation and Sue for sharing it on your wonderful website. Amitiés de France.

André est un homme tellement adorable de part son talent mais aussi son sens de l'humour et son humanité. Ses concerts sont tout simplement fabuleux, des moments magnifiques ou l'on oublie les difficultés du quotidien. Bravo et merci à lui et son formidable orchestre! GOD BLESS YOU Maestro ! Francine.
