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!

He wrote many beautiful pieces, but the ones I personally prefer are (as I mentioned before) the remakes of I like Chopin, Fur Elise, and Io che non vivo. ! Hope you like them as well See ya!

I like Richard Clayderman and keep an eye on his activity. He is prolific composer and a true-hearted musician - did you know he has played over 200 shows in 250 days back in the days? Just wow.

I heard Clayderman's composition being honored in one show but I haven't really listened to his music. Thanks for sharing Slyvia! You added a person to my list of composers to search for.
