Composer of outstanding scores and one of the most respected musicians of his generation
Yann Tiersen, one of the most highly praised musicians of his generation, became internationally famous in 2001 as a composer of soundtracks. However, his career relies on much more than that. He got into post-punk during the 80’s second half, he was able to blend mixed musical influences, from street music to avant-garde, from minimalism to rock or from waltz to chanson. Apart from the three soundtracks and three live albums, eleven records have followed to his first La Valse des montres, released back in 1995. In December 2019 he releases Portrait where he re-records, reinterprets and puts in context again 22 of his tracks, including three new songs.
