"He is forever testing himself, questioning and moving forward with his music. As soon as he has completed one project he is onto the next with all the love, enthusiasm and nervousness of a newcomer. When he is composing he only looks as if he's in the room with you. In reality, he is far, far away, in some exalted place where there is only him and the notes. But, when he comes back, he brings with him music that is exciting, moving and beautiful. He brings a vision that makes an unforgettable experience out of a story set to song. That is why tonight and every night, people around the world are going to see Andrew Lloyd Webber shows ... his music of the night is music for all time." (節錄自莎拉布萊曼的致敬辭
