Reminiscing on the last Yann Tiersen show in Los Angeles is like walking into a sweet dream filled with music boxes. His minimalist compositions became some of my favorites since I first heard them on his award winning score for Jean-Pierre Juenet’s movie“Amelié” (2001). The multi-instrumentalist composer had an outstanding performance at The Fonda Theatre for the last stop on his U.S. tour promoting his latest album, Infinity. The main track of this album “A Midsummer Evening” was released a few months back and it was one of the highlights of the night. He is currently being accompanied by a team of equally skillful multi-instrumentalists and vocalists that make the live performance even more outstanding than the recording.
Throughout the night, Tiersen teased the audience by doodling on the piano tunes of the known track “La Dispute” gaining awes from the crowd until finally surrendering to please us all with it… and it was beautiful. The night continued with him shifting from bells to toy piano and xylophone while allowing his musicians to shine in their own skills.
