Roman Markowicz, Contributor (Polski Radio Recordings)

"The performer was a pianist, a dark foreigner with a beard. He played Bartok, which I believe is probably not the sort of thing for neophyte concert-goers. He played as if his very being depended on the music. The music was alive and I could feel it. I have never before or since felt that way about any music. I knew it was special."

Ruth Marler (André memory)

Krzysztof Chorzelski -
Contributor (André music)

"I remember André played the [Stravinsky] Petrushka Suite, and afterwards he asked me, 'Did you notice that I added two more movements?' He had transcribed the additional movements by his own hand and added them to the suite. I remember that he played beautifully and with rare color and imagination."

[son of pianist Jakob Gimpel]
