    Oh dear. Very sad news. I hope this is successful treatment.

    Best wishes to Mr. Georgiadis.

    All the best to this great violinist, conductor and (most recently) author. I just read the book, which I strongly recommend.

    Wishing a speedy recovery

    Wishing John everything good, remembering him well from the LSO of the early 1970s..

    Best wishes from a fellow violinist.

  • Greg Bottini says:

    Oh my gosh – we heard a Johann Strauss concert “concertmastered” by him at the Royal Albert Hall on our honeymoon in 1979!
    We sat way up in the rafters with the young students and we all loved every minute of it!
    Best of luck dear John, and a quick return to good health.
