Brisbane Powerhouse presents
PLANET: Yann Tiersen (France)
Tue 10 Apr 2012
Classical composer, virtuoso performer, street entertainer, rock musician – Genius?!! You’ll have to see him to believe the vast scope that this French avant-garde performer has mastered.
Yann Tiersen wrote the soundtrack for the multi awarded film “Amelie”. This classically trained multi-instrumentalist will shock even his most fanatical fans with his live performance and transfix even the most unenthused amongst the crowd.
“It was one of those rare moments at a live gig when you realise you've been in the presence of greatness”. - Michael Hubbard, Music OMH
With a live review such as this ... how excited are we that Yann Tiersen is heading to Brisbane for the very first time? !! The answer is ...VERY!!!
“Here was a man making electricity spark from an acoustic instrument before our very eyes … His playing was enough to make members of his audience weep at its beauty....and a lovely warm feeling envelopes you as you head home.” - Michael Hubbard MUSIC OMH
Support Act: Cori Scanlon who will perform as a duo with guitar and cello
Duration: 1hr 50mins
