If I had to pick 10 CD's that were the very essence of passion this would be one of the top picks!
I saw Yanni first playing live on TV as I was "channel surfing" and I was frozen in my seat, completely entralled by his passion and originality. I went straight out the next day and bought this CD. Rarely does any music reach out and Grab my heart the way Yanni does; oh if everything were as romantic and passionate as his music!
My personal favorites are: 1 ONE MAN'S DREAM 2 REFLECTIONS OF PASSION 3 UNTIL THE LAST MOMENT 4 NOSTALGIA and 5 THE RAIN MUST FALL.
Whether you are a hopeless romantic, or a firey aggressive person this is the music for you!
I whole-heartedly recommend Yanni's music for the entire world! There is so much beauty. No words are needed.

I never thought my love for music would extend to Yanni. I purchased this album back in high school (10 years ago or so), covertly, and without mentioning it to my friends. Sure enough, it was a beautiful record but I didn't appreciate it for what it was.

Now, as I've found my part of the world to be a raucous, traffic-ingested sort, I can find peace in Yanni's Live at the Acropolis. Even his most invigorating tunes are like listening to a combination of classical music and the better of Hollywood scores...but his music is still a genre on its own.

The piano is beautifully played, my favorite instrument to listen to (with accompaniment); the orchestra is molded perfectly to his music and the very subtle keyboard effects (e.g. haunting ambient choirs in "Until the Last Moment" or string pizzicato in "Standing in Motion") work wonders to add atmosphere. I actually don't know Yanni's other music, so I don't know if he uses orchestras otherwise, but credit must go to his three orchestrators, Shardad Rohani, Jeffrey Silverman, and John Rinehimer for exceptional work.

This record is so meticulously handled, it blows me away. The Acropolis's ambience is preserved; the audience's applause sounds like rain, as it would if you were watching a tasteful theatrical presentation. They did well to remove loud whistles (which can be heard only if the listener is trying) and other distractions. The applause after certain solos is gently brought into the piece keeping that "live" feeling throughout.

The on-site recording and engineering is top-notch, and Yanni himself mixed the final product, keeping the levels respectable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yanni at his best September 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Inspiring. He has the backing of a great philarmonic orchestra and two virtuosos on the violin. Track number 7 is great, the two violin players it is as if they have a competition who will play faster. And the last one (reflections of passion) is propably one of the best songs he has ever composed. it was my wedding song. If you are planning to visit Greece get this cd and take it with you. you will be able to understand Yanni's music even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live at The Acropolis DVD November 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you're going to buy one Yanni DVD this would be the one. It's just plain excellent in all aspects of performance, production, & songs. Anything Yanni did after this production (either CD or DVD) just illustrates how he suborned his artistic talents and started chasing the dollar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic July 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There is nothing quite like this particular Yanni CD. To listen as he explores so many boundaries of music is a rare treat. I can spend hours just letting the music wash over me. I suggest you try out the samples on this and other Yanni CDs. Most of them are great and even the "worst" Yanni CD is well worth owning.

This warm and romantic concert, performed in a venue with such history is the perfect peak of a great time in Yanni's career. Though I enjoy his new albums, I always find myself ranging back to this time.

I also suggest these Yanni CDs:

If I Could Tell You

Love Songs

Dare To Dream

In Celebration Of Life

Out Of Silence

Port Of Mystery

Winter Light

In The Mirror

Well I could go on but this is a good start.

You should also check out Enya, John Tesh, Kitaro, California Guitar Trio, and Alistair Fraiser (each in my mind represents a side of Yanni music, though Yanni is the fusion of the best of all of these).

If you are new to Yanni this is easily the best place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music that arouses strange emotions June 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Yanni is a genius and this album is his best! Its a compilation from his earlier albums played by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Acropolis.

Can you go jogging and the blood still rush to your brain? Only when you are listening to Yanni...his music arouses happy emotions. His music has that healing touch!

If you like it, also try his other album "If I could tell you".

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Inspiring Music of the 20.th Century! August 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hello!

I first heard and saw "Yanni at the Acropolis" on Chicago's WTTW Station that were selling its VHS, CD, and DVD copies of it to profit their user supported TV Station.
Needless to say, I fell in love with Yanni's insperational and spiritually uplifting music! While watching Yanni and his Orchestra's performance at the Acropolis, I also fell in love with the performances of the 2 beautiful and very talented Violinists who performed beyond anyones' expectations in their enthusiastic and brilliant Violin Concerto performances of their Lifetime!! They were my reason for ordering both the CD and the DVD as I want to see those beautiful women again and again on screen performing their Virtuoso performances simultaneously with Yanni's brilliant Piano background! This Concert is indeed One of the Kind that nobody could ever reproduce in our Modern History! No offense meant to Bach or Mozart, or other great composers whose music I also enjoy, but times have changed!
Yours Truly, Steve Horvath, Chicago, IL
