Album Review

Essential is a fine double-disc compilation assembled from ten of Yanni's albums. The 32 tracks span the first half of the new age mega-star's career — from his debut album in the mid-'80s right up to 1993, the year of his peak achievement, Live at the Acropolis. "Marching Season," "Reflections of Passion," "Santorini," “Flight of Fantasy," "Chasing Shadows," "In the Mirror," and "The Rain Must Fall" are among the highlights.

What a collection!! It's very apparent that Yanni is a genius through this scope of music. It takes me into another world.

This should be #1 on iTunes

Yanni has more talent in one strand of his lusious hair then anyone on the charts today has in their intire body. Yanni is my favorite artist and I'm 15.

My 5 year old nephew can't never get enough of Yanni. Can you believe this? It would be a blessing if we all vote that iTunes add to its listing the Album Yanni "Live Tribute." It was a concert that took place in 1996 in India.
Yanni is my FAVORITE musician. I hope those of you who live in washington, DC had a great time at the Warner Theather where Yanni performed last April.

Of the artists who rose to popularity as part of the new age music boom of the 1980s and '90s, few (if any) enjoyed greater or more lasting success than Yanni. Composing and performing instrumental music with a pronounced sense of drama, dynamics, and romanticism, Yanni broke through to a significantly larger audience than his peers, thanks to adult alternative radio airplay and a commanding performance style that attracted fans through frequent appearances on public television as well as world-wide...
