Clayderman to surprise fans by performing 'Ey Iran' in first concert in Iran

Renowned and best-selling French pianist Richard Clayderman, known as the most successful pianist in the world, is scheduled to hold his first-ever live performance in Iran this summer.

In his first performance in Iran, the 64-year-old pianist will surprise his Iranian audiences by playing the patriotic Persian song 'Ey Iran' on the piano. The song is considered by many as the unofficial de facto national anthem of Iran, honaronline.ir wrote.

Organized by Royal Honar Institution, the program will include his New Age and Classical music.

To be accompanied by a professional ensemble, Clayderman is expected to hold his first concert at the Interior Ministry's Grand Auditorium on June 22 and 23.

His supporters in Iran know Clayderman as the composer of 'Ballade pour Adeline', 'Lettre A Ma Mere', 'My Way' and 'A Comme Amour'.

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.

As of 2006, his record sales numbered approximately 150 million, and he also has 267 gold and 70 platinum albums to his credit.

He is popular in Asia and is noted by the Guinness Book of World Records as being 'the most successful pianist in the world'.

Born in 1953, Clayderman has released numerous albums including the compositions of Paul de Senneville and Olivier Toussaint, instrumental renditions of popular music, rearrangements of movie soundtracks, ethnic music, and easy-listening arrangements of popular works of classical music.

His concert in Tehran follows the successful performances of award-winning Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, Icelandic BAFTA-winning multi-instrumentalist composer Ólafur Arnalds and German electronic band Schiller.
