The smoochy French pianist paved the way 30 years ago for western musicians to play in China.
Now he’s opening in Iran.
To be accompanied by Kenny G on sax?
I’ve just booked my ticket. I have to rush to see this one!! Hoping “Hammerklavier” is on the program!! Very exciting.:-)
Don’t forget your burka, or whatever it takes.
I’d have to wear one for fear of frightening the horses, now that I’m over 60 (cough)!
It’s more likely that you will listen to some kind of ”Fingerhammerung.”
LOL. I was thinking more Lawrence Welk than Beethoven!!!
How many decades haven’t we heard of him here in France?
Just count your lucky stars!!!
The local Chinese restaurant plays Ballade pour Adeline pretty much every hour.
That indigestible, huh?
The purveyors of public musical culture in today’s Iran are almost wholly talentless, amoral charlatans; accordingly, this comes as no surprise.
“Talentless, amoral charlatans” wow!
No-one could accuse the management of the Met of being that.
So you think you play better than him, Mahan?
Any 2-year-old can play the piano better than Richard Clayderman – his keyboard skills are weak and amateurish.
It might have been a good idea for him to play Sorabji’s Gulistān while there; as a piece by a half-Western, half-Parsi composer based upon the work of Sa’di, I’m sure that its Persian credentials would go down as much of a storm in present-day Iran as would Donald Trump setting up a golf course in Isfahan…
