Marjorie Rieu "Woman in The Mirror"

Marjorie's Interview With People Magazine

Munich: "André can become incredibly outraged when something does not work! Moreover, he also sings during rehearsals", reveals André Rieu's wife, Marjorie (62) in her first interview with the People magazine, "WOMAN IN THE MIRROR". And during rehearsals he rides a bike."

There are no current photos of the wife of the Star Violinist. Why does she shy away from publicity? "I do not want to be the woman by the side of the artists" confesses the former German and Italian teacher. "I do not want to be defined through my husband" she says.

When asked if André is disappointed when she is not with him during events, she replied, "Nonsense, there are plenty of other beautiful ladies who perform along with him." She is definitely not jealous. "André can always find someone better".

Marjorie Rieu describes herself as someone "very down to earth". Her luxury is coziness. "Of course, success brings a certain degree of quality of life with it. "To her it is not the exterior appearances of expensive jewelry, but rather the small things in every day life. "For example, if you do not drive yourself to the gas station, or have a chauffeur to do your purchase, and you yourself do not have to look for a parking place, that, today is real luxury.

"In her marriage she has been lucky that they never argue." She is a very tolerant lady. "I know in advance when he is under stress. I will not trouble him then with problems. So I just wait a bit "

This Christmas is something very special for the Rieu family. For the first time this Christmas Eve will be celebrated together with the three grandchildren. In a matter of just four months, André Rieu became a grandfather three times. Ivan, his eldest grandson by his son, Marc (30), came into the world six months ago. And only a few weeks later, on October 13, Eefje, the wife of his son Pierre (28), brought the twins Linde and Lieke into the world.

"They all are lovable babies. But suddenly I feel myself older", says Grandmother Marjorie Rieu.

Andre Rieu," I am so in love with my grandchildren. I am a grandfather with a passion. I would just love to be with the little ones all the time." When he is on tour, he can never pass by a baby store without buying clothes.

Christmas according to André Rieu belongs to the family. "They offered us millions if we would play on Christmas Eve. I refused", said the star. Now the grand children trio is playing first violin with us and dictating the tempo! There is a lot of baby crying".

Thanks to Hans for sending this to us and John for Translating it!

I would love to meet Marjorie! She sounds like someone I'd really like. I believe she must be a very strong, secure, independent and intelligent lady. No wonder André chose her for his wife. Not having to find a parking place is a real luxury here in California too!

Thanks for the article about Marjorie. Andre and Marjorie were blessed with each other. Together they have accomplished so much with a lot of hard work, a love for people, and willing to share of themselves. Thanks Marjorie so much. I hope you can rest and be pampered in 2010, if there is such a thing, but with all you and Andre have going on, how can this be.
Admire you greatly,
Hilda USA
