"Janine Marie Louise Andrade was admitted to the Paris Conservatoire, where she studied with Jules Boucherit. By age twelve she had already won a First Prize at the conservatory in 1931.
In 1936, Andrade went to study under Jacques Thibaud in Saint-Jean-de-Luz: she had already performed with him the Bach Double Concerto in d minor in Roubaix a year before. Andrade’s stature as an artist had become more widely acknowledged and she became a popular violinist, although there was a strong rivalry between her and Ginette Neveu, until Neveu passed away in 1949. Soon afterwards, Andrade’s ever increasing successes in Europe led her in the muscial centers throughout the world. During her extensive musical trips as violinist, she played with many major orchestras led by prominent conductors, among them: Ernest Ansermet, van Beinum, Eugène Bigot, Eugen Jochum, Ferdinand Leitner, Konwitschny, Pierre Monteux, Charles Münch, Günther Wand, Sixten Ehrling, Jean Martinon and Paul Paray.
In 1972, Andrade suffered a massive stroke while teaching students that devolved into aphasia and hemiplegia on the right side of her body and an inability to properly speak. She was very uncomfortable without much of a future and spent her remaining years in the ‘Fondation Galignani’ nursing home in Neuilly, France. Janine Andrade died in a hospital in Levallois-Perret, France on 24 October, 1997."
