Richard Clayderman - Success

Success

Clayderman has recorded over 1,300 melodies, and has created a new romantic style through a repertoire which combines his trademark originals with classics and pop standards. He has devoted much of his time to performing concerts, going as far as playing 200 shows in 250 days. He has clocked up worldwide record sales of approximately 70 million, as of 2006, and has 267 gold and 70 platinum discs to his credit. He is popular in Asia and is noted by the Guinness Book of World Records as being "the most successful pianist in the world".

His style and particularly his song "A Comme Amour" have a cult following in Asia - every new China Mobile SIM-card purchased in Shanghai since 2006 has this song as the default ringback tone when calling other subscribers.

He lives in Saint-Ouen with his wife Christine, his son Peter, and his daughter Maud.

Famous quotes containing the word success:

    She knows there’s no success like failure
    And that failure’s no success at all.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    A tragic irony of life is that we so often achieve success or financial independence after the chief reason for which we sought it has passed away.
    Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945)

    The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic, and self- complacent is erroneous; on the contrary, it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant, and kind. Failure makes people cruel and bitter.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)
