Yann Tiersen and More in Moscow this Weekend

Moscow does not believe in tears, but apparently it believes in celebrating Halloween. Moscow Times’ Andrei Muchnik picks his gooviest Halloween events for the weekend, including a concert by Yann Tiersen, composer of the Amelie soundtrack. Da!

If you are short the 2000 rubles for the live Halloween show at Crocus City Hall, give a free listen to Tiersen’s latest from his new album”EUSA”

Halloween is almost here. This weekend almost every bar and club in Moscow will hold its version of a pre-Halloween party, but if you’re not in a mood for trick or treating, there’s plenty of awesome gigs you can go to instead. From one of the most popular British bands in Russia to a great French composer, here are our top picks.

Chanson Du Jour: La Valse D’ Amelie

Chanson Du Jour 10/20/2016 “La Valse D’ Amelie” by Yann Tiersen

This is one my favorites from the film Amelie. Composer/performer Yann Tiersen plays piano, accordion, violin as well as melodica, xylophone, toy piano, bicycle wheel and a typewriter in one of the greatest film soundtracks ever made. Tiersen won a 2001 BAFTA Award for Best Film Music for Amelie (should have won the Oscar.)
