Enjoy the piece of music below, I have been looking forward to doing an issue on it forever. –
The piece is ‘Ballade pour Adeline’ (French, “Ballade for Adeline”). It is a very beautiful piece of music, and an important piece of classical music, in part, because unlike the music of Mozart etc it was composed more recently, in 1976; there have been fewer pieces of great classical music composed lately. It was composed by French composers Paul de Senneville (primary composer) and Olivier Toussaint (de Senneville’s composition partner). Paul de Senneville composed the piece as a tribute to his newborn daughter, Adeline. The first recording was by Richard Clayderman and it was a gargantuan hit, and made Richard Clayderman hugely famous. According to Wikipedia world-wide sales of his recording of Ballade pour Adeline have now reached over 22 million copies in 38 countries.
Beautifully elegant video of the piece’s performance by Richard Clayderman:
