Al Mulla Exchange, the premier money remittance company in Kuwait, is to present a live concert by the legendary pianist, Richard Clayderman on October 25 to 26 at the Regency Hotel. Known as the ‘Prince of Romance’, for his versatility in playing soulful tunes on the piano, Richard Clayderman was born in Paris in 1953. He joined the Conservatoire de Paris at the young age of 12. Propelled by hard work and dedication his career began to flourish at the age of 20, when he began re-interpreting popular tunes and composing rich, fantastical music.
Following a big break in 1977, when he recorded ‘Ballade pour Adeline’ a captivating tune that was light and hypnotic, Richard launched his success onto the world stage. His debut album sold more than 20 million copies and was distributed in 38 countries. His luxurious, orchestral sound was compared by many admirers to the well-known American pianist and vocalist Valentino Liberace, but the Frenchman stands in a class of his own.
When Richard’s first album was available on mail order, thousands of besotted women sent their cheques and fan letters. Nancy Reagan, the widow of the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, was credited with giving him the title of ‘Prince of Romance’. Clayderman has recorded over 1,300 melodies, and has created a new romantic style through a repertoire which combines his trademark originals with classics and pop standards.
According to The Guinness Book of World Records, Richard Clayderman is “the most successful pianist in the world.” He has clocked up worldwide record sales of albums and has 267 gold and 70 platinum discs to his credit. Accredited to his brilliance is a vast discography of over 200 albums, where he has infused his soulful touch to Andrew Lloyd Webber love songs, Bollywood movie soundtracks, and the folk music of Germany, Turkey, and Japan.
Clayderman’s popularity resurged with the release of his 2013 album, ‘Romantique’ which features a mélange of film music, pop and light classical standards, as well as a recording of his best-known tune, ‘Ballade pour Adeline’.
