Just noticed this video by Yann Tiersen and wanted to
share it here.



So sad and poignant. Really moves me.

Yes, nice piece to learn, even for beginners. I'd love to find a video of Yann Tiersen playing it.

that was quite the thread at PW a while back when alex Hernandez shared it with us. I fell in love with that piece and many adult beginners are learning it. It's simple structurally and since i play by ear incorrectly i play it in 'variation'... and invariably everyone who hears it adores it.

a lovely piece... and that is one of my favorite videos ever.

Yes, what I really like is how much the music enhances the imagery. They go perfect together! smile

Yes, this piece is from the movie Amalie (sp?). I rented it a year or so ago because of this piece. It's a good movie too and there are other Tiersen pieces in it that I downloaded and learned. I love his music.

"Amélie" is the correct name. Good movie indeed.

A lovely song, indeed.

To get more into it and to figure out why it has this flowing, peaceful character, I tried to analyse the chord progression a little bit.

Since it contains no leading tone, it has a modal character. It sounds Aeolian. The cadence in the last bar is of plagal nature and has the movement bVII -> I-, which is a typical aeolian cadence.

By the way, all other chord movements in this song are also plagal and move all in ascending thirds.

Every chord has 2 common tones with its neighbouring chords. So if these common tones stay in their position, automatically inversions arise.

Thanks for the correct spelling AlexDreamer. I knew I didn't have it just right.

I watched it about a year ago.
