Comptine D’un Autre Été, L’apres-Midi – Yann Tiersen

12 Mar

You may have heard Yann Tiersen’s beautiful piano piece entitled Comptine D’un Autre Été, L’apres-Midi before. The song featured first in the French film Amélie, released in 2001. It then went on to get big international recognition and feature in Italian and German movies. If you have a particularly sharp ear, you may have picked up on the BBC using it in their programmes The Apprentice, and The Restaurant.

Pretty beautiful, huh? In my opinion it’s one of the best piano pieces out there. I know it’s a little down for the start of a weekend, but hey, everyone should hear this, and there’s absolutely no time like the present. My thoughts are with Japan.
