Yann Tiersen - Discography (21 albums)

Guillaume Yann Tiersen (born 23 June 1970) is a French musician and composer known internationally for composing the score to the Jean-Pierre Jeunet movie Amélie.

His music is recognized by its use of a large variety of instruments in relatively minimalist compositions, often with a touch of either European classical music or french folk music, using primarily the piano, accordion or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, ondes martenot, harpsichord and typewriter.

He has been compared to musicians like Chopin, Erik Satie, Phillip Glass and Michael Nyman!

Some nice piano pieces for beginners !

Here are some of my favorites by French Composer Yann Tiersen :

Yann Tiersen was born in Brest in Brittany and has moved to Paris. Tiersen has recorded many of his albums all by himself. On the soundtrack of Amelie for example, he is credited with playing the following instruments : toy piano, carillon, banjo, mandolins, guitar, harpsichord, vibraphone, accordion, piano, bass guitar and melodica. It seems he lays down the sound track layers one above the other. But he is not a recluse by any means. There have been many concerts of his music performed using a substantial number of musicians, where he himself plays the piano or accordion.
His music seems to be a confluence of both the traditional and the new.Familiar, yet surprising. Although simple in construction and very easy to listen to, appealing to a wide range of musical tastes and age groups, this simplicity is deceptive.

I'll try to find and add Sheets to some of his pieces in this blog.
