Yann Tiersen's the guy responsible for the Amelie soundtrack and he was at the Phoenix, a Toronto concert hall. I guess I'm living in a fantasy world but I set out tonight expecting joyful, uplifting music. But I got a pile of boring crap. Tiersen played a theme from Amelie during the encore at double speed for about 12 seconds. I thought that was an insolent way to treat the material that made his name.
I was so looking forward to it but it almost wrecked my memories of the movie. He may be tired of constantly reprising the pieces from the film but that's what I wanted.
