Thumbs up Richard Clayderman

Richard Clayderman is a very good french composer which reminds me a lot of Frederic Chopin. His style is infact very similar. Furthermore, he likes to open some of his songs with a piece of Chopin. For example, he remixed the 80's song I like Chopin by Gazebo, and in the opening, he played one of Chopin's most famous nocturnal. He is amazing, he thinks in music, his songs seem speaking (in french). I think his most famous (but not necessarily better) song is called Ballade pour Adeline . He became more than rich with that song. If you like classical music, then you like Richard Clayderman. He is very much on the romantic french side. Soem of his songs I personally prefer are the remake of Fur Elise, the remake of I like Chopin and the remake of a famous italian song which had great success abroad, Io che non vivo.
If you don't know him, you should probably listen to some of his pieces and let me know if you like him!
