    Nobody was/is so important to the "classical" way of playing as Mr. André. His style and sound were so pure. He was the first to play most of the telemann, vivaldi, ... catalogue in a long long time. A lot of baroque concertos were reissued due to him because those pieces were completely forgotten about. I surely want to play like him. My great idol. :-(

    A man like this will live on as long as his music is played by those that loved to hear him. My sadness comes from never hearing him play live.

    I got the word earlier. How sad! He was indeed a giant talent, unique and iconic as they come. No one played like him.
