Yann Tiersen at the Fonda – Photo: Wei Shi

Yann Tiersen is a musical prodigy that’s been involved in music since he was four when he started to play the piano. Then at six he took up violin, receiving classical training at musical academies in Rennes, Nantes and Boulogne. Then, at the age of 13, he chose to alter his destiny, breaking his violin into pieces, buying a guitar and forming a rock band. The musical genius will be headlining the Music Box on Saturday, May 12, 2012. You can click here to see our past Yann Tiersen live review and photo gallery!
