I remember Alexis 'though I did not know him well; his dear mother was a member of the Florida Philharmonic Guild when I was on the board of the orchestra, and she was a lovely lady; she was so proud of her son, and he was delightful to meet. His talent was remarkable, and when I read of their terrible time before they came to this country, I was so happy that that German guard was as enchanted as everyone who has heard him play, and helped them to escape, so that we could learn to know him and his wonderful skill!
Thank you, Alexis, may you rest in Peace and the knowledge that you have made a wonderful difference in all our lives!

As a person and pianist you impressed me more than any other has or will. A remarkable man and pianist. Thank you Alexis and Rest in Great Peace.
He was great fun, mischievous...full of life...I knew him when he was Sigi...and quite loved him.
To the Weissenberg Family,
Celebrating a life well lived, but still too short. We have lost a very talented and caring person in Mr.Weissenberg who will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Seventy years is our life span, eighty years with special mightiness-Psalms 90:10
Matthew 5:5-"Happy are the mild-tempered ones, since they will inherit the earth".

Ma mere (OBM) etait une "fan d'Avignon" de Mr Weissenberg, et nous ecoutions souvent les disques de Sigi et Alexis.
Le dernier concert ou j'ai eu la chance d'ecouter et de rencontrer Mr Weissenberg etait au printemps 1970 a Barcelone. La rendition de Ravel Pavane pour une infante defunte m'avait ebloui et est encore fraiche dans ma memoire.
Mes plus sinceres condoleances
Always good to hear that there was good amongst evil. Glad the good prevailed concering the German guard.
To the the family of Alexis Weissenberg - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
Mr. Weissenberg's artistry touched and inspired me deeply. He is the reason I am a pianist today. I had the honor of a lesson with him in France years ago, and met him many times afterward. Always a kind and quiet gentleman, he gave me more courage than I could ever express.
I am sorry for your family's loss. -Isa.33:24
May Jehovah comfort you all during this time of deep sorrow.
God Bless Him and Your Family At This Difficult Tyme.
