In this Sunday, July 26th in the Greek amphitheater in the open air at the foot of Montjuïc Mountain will be a concert of the world famous musician Jan Tiersen.
Yann Tiersen, the famous French multi-instrumentalist, composer and conductor minimalist - one of the brightest and most popular neoclassical our time. He became particularly famous after the creation of the soundtrack to the film "Amelie". He plays a variety of instruments: from toy piano to Carillon and vibraphone, conducts his own orchestra, sings.
Do not neglect it and modern technology: in his works are mysteriously intertwined sounds of wind-up toy, miniature Barrel organ and music boxes, which gives the music a kind of touching naivety. Journalists call it "living legend", "lonely sailor" and romantic, critics consider him a very promising composer and a musician, and he gives his music a grateful audience celebration of the soul and helps to find faith in love, the wonder, beauty.
"My music comes from the air, from the movement. When I write, - says the composer, - I do not sit behind a sheet with notes ... I walk around the room to and fro, sometimes I run out into the street. Perhaps this is a consequence of my childhood memories - I grew up by the sea, in the fishing ends and the sea ... It is always in motion, never standing still. "
