Yann Tiersen: the musician who amazes the audience
That day was really, really hot, but I ignored that just for Yann Tiersen, one of the most well-known French musicians and composers who gave a great sold out performance in Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
All of us who had the luck to listen his music, travelled to the magic world that he only knows how to create.
The scenery of Odeon of Herodes Atticus, with the great melodies of Yann Tiersen, made my evening really unforgettable.
Yann Tiersen is an “orchestra” by himself. His ability to play on his own different musical instruments on stage, surprises the audience each time.
His style is deeply emotional and it’s reflected to his melancholy music and compositional techniques of Classical and folk music with pop and rock.
Until his next performance, it’s really worthy to buy few of his albums that Tiersen composes and arranges music incorporating several instruments including keyboards such as piano, electric piano, Fender Rhodes, organ, harpsichord, Bontempi and toy piano, Korg and Moog synthesizers, Mellotron, accordion and melodica, strings as violin, viola, violone and cello, different types of electric, acoustic and bass guitars, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, bouzouki and oud, brasses, like horns, and woodwind instruments such as saxophone, clarinet, bassoon, pipe, oboe and flute, percussions like drums, vibraphone, marimba, tubular bells, tom, cymbal, glockenspiel and tam-tam, and also the sounds produced by Leslie speaker, music box, carillons, typewriters, cooking vessels, chairs, a car or a bicycle wheel.
Tiersen plays all of these instruments both in the studio and in concert.
