Richard Clayderman's Instrumental Music

After two days of heavy downpour in the afternoon, it's a cloudy day today. And when the weather is sad like what it is today, I listen to the music of Richard Clayderman. Do you know him or his music? I love listening to his music that sometimes my sisters would tease me that I am listening to my funeral music. Most of my siblings go for R&B and pop music nowadays, sometimes rock, and they like to play it loud. So instrumental music was not exactly their type of music. I don't know about the cultures or how other countries bury their dead. But in the Philippines, the coffin is put in a funeral car followed by a procession of family and friends and then slowly head to the cemetery where the dead is to be buried. As the car travels, a sad song or instrumental music, usually a favorite of the dead is being played in the funeral car radio. So since Richard Clayderman's music is piano music with no vocals, my sisters call it funeral music. But I'm also sure they love it since we grew up listening to his music.

Richard Clayderman

Richard Clayderman was a French pianist who was born in 1953. At a very young age, his father who is a piano teacher saw his potential and began teaching him to play the piano. He was accepted at the Conservatoire of Music at the age of 12 years old. In 1976, he was called to audition to play a piano ballad which was composed as a tribute of a father to his newborn daughter. He got the job and record the piece which is now known as Ballad Pour Adeline. Since then, he became successful and has recorded more than 1,300 melodies.Here are some of my favorites instrumental/piano music played by him.
