A noteworthy trivia is that the time signature for this piece is 5/4
I heard a TV ad use a excerpt from this one, I thought it would be nice if I played for you the full piece 🙂
The piece is originally a soundtrack for a popular soap opera on Tele Liban during the 70’s by the same name
Composed by Mohammed Abdel Wahab
There’s a measure where the B should be 1/4 tone. But unfortunately that’s not possible on the piano.
Yep, the one from the advertisement. The effort put in music for ads back then is probably more than the effort given for ‘regular’ songs nowadays.
Yet another one of my favorite songs by Ziad.
I know it’s not a perfect take with some mistakes but it’s generally a nice one so I thought I’d share it.
Inspired by the version from his album Live at the Acropolis.
This piece was very inspirational to me, one of the first songs to play on piano instead of keyboard.
Soundtrack from the French movie Amelie by Yann Tiersen.
I added some variations which is a mix between the orchestral and the piano solo versions.
One of my favorite songs. The previous take on the blog was a bit outdated, I decided to take a new one. Enjoy.
The famous 2nd introduction of Mays El Rim play by the Rahbani Brothers.
This was one of the earliest publicized compositions of Ziad. I overheard he was 16 when he composed it. It might have been his first musical contribution to a play by his father and uncle.
This beautiful piece has been performed in many concerts, with many different arrangements. This piano interpretation has been inspired by several of those arrangements.
