ROMANTIQUE. French pianist Richard Clayderman talked about his new album Romantique at Via Mare, Philippine International Convention Center last November 14.
Clayderman said, “Romantique is a gorgeous collection of everyone’s favorite hits, of classic love songs which combines trademark originals with classic and pop standards.”
His new compilation consists of “West Side Story,” Adele’s “Someone Like You,” and “Les Miserables.”
In the acknowledgements that appear in his album, Clayderman gratefully pointed out: "I have never forgotten that very few French artists have been offered the opportunity to make a career in the UK and Decca, 30 years ago, had given me their confidence before successfully launching me in England."
His 13-track album Romantique is now available in CDs at Astroplus, Odyssey Music and Video and Fully Booked or online via Smart Music http://www.smart.com.ph/music or iTunes http://smarturl.it/RCromantiqueph
