French pianistRichard Clayderman will give a concert at Al Manara Inernational Convention Center on Friday 14 February 2020.

The 'Prince of Romance', born Philippe Pagès, has had a career spanning 40 years of music.

After studying at the Conservatoire de Paris, his career kicked off in 1976, when record producers Olivier Toussaint and Paul de Senneville selected him to record a gentle piano ballad for de Senneville’s baby daughter.

Ballade Pour Adeline (Ballad for Adeline) went on to sell 22 million copies in 38 countries, earning Clayderman international acclaim.

He has since recorded over 1,300 melodies, and has established a signature style which combines his trademark originals with classics and pop standards. His record sales are over 150 million, with 267 gold and 70 platinum albums.
