Fresh from releasing a new single, “Palestine”, from his eagerly-awaited album, Tiersen hits the road in a show which will push musical boundaries, and examine his repertoire under a renewed musical light.
While his reputation as a musician was first established thanks to his early studio albums, “La valse des monstres”, “Rue des cascades” and “Le Phare” that served as an introduction for the mainstream audience to his music writing wisdom, it was his work on the score for the movie Amélie Poulain that earned him widespread recognition, where, thanks to great neoclassical vision, he would play around with pop and folk sounds, stripped from common cliches. However, Yann Tiersen made his biggest impression on spectators first and foremost through his live performances, playing alone or with his band, by delivering an emotionally charged and freely inspired conception of his music to the audience.
Fresh from releasing a new single, “Palestine”, from his eagerly-awaited album (“Dust Lane”, which “brilliantly proves the extent of his ambition once again, blasting all ideas of hermetic musical boundaries; borrowing this time from Rock music sounds, and allowing his musical writing skills to blossom into a superb and strong creation”), Tiersen hits the road in a show which will push musical boundaries, and examine his repertoire under a renewed musical light.
