Product Description

Limited two disc (CD/DVD) edition of the New Age artist's 2009 album including a bonus DVD that contains behind-the-scenes footage on the making of the album plus tour highlights. World renowned, Grammyr-nominated pianist composer and producer, Yanni makes a triumphant return with the 2009 album Voices. For the first time ever, new vocal sensations Nathan Pacheco, Leslie Mills, Ender Thomas and Chloe lend their voices and lyrics to Yanni's beloved classics and new songs. Also available: the Spanish-language Voces.

About the Artist

Listen again to Yanni's melodies, composed over an incomparable 22-year career, and it becomes clear: The man's music was meant to be sung. Revered for his sweeping symphonic pieces and intimate keyboard airs, Yanni long resisted having vocalists reinterpret his music with lyrics. That is, until now with his premiere Disney Pearl album, "Yanni Voices." More than two years in the making, "Voices" is without question Yanni's most ambitious project yet.

Teaming up with Grammy-winning producer Ric Wake, Yanni went all out, discovering four young singers - Nathan Pacheco, Ender Thomas, Leslie Mills and Chloe - and pairing them with his compositions, old and new. Rather than hire established wordsmiths, Ric and Yanni turned them loose, encouraging the four to write lyrics for the melodies that moved them most. It proved a winning gamble.

About 2 months ago I happened to catch a PBS broadcast of this concert performance, and I was instantly mesmerized by it. This experience led me to buy the CD and then ultimately see Yanni in concert at Radio City Music Hall on May 2. It was an absolutely amazing event, both musically and visually.

Previously, I only owned Yanni's "Live at the Acropolis" CD. I recently bought three more of his CDs, and all are nothing short of excellent. As far as I know, all of Yanni's previous works are almost entirely instrumental, so "Voices" represents a departure from his usual work in that regard. There is still a connection, however, to these other works because several of the tracks on "Voices" are previous Yanni songs with lyrics added. The lyrics were either written entirely by the singers themselves or in collaboration with Yanni (and a few others).

I can understand that some reviewers may be unaccustomed to hearing a substantial vocal content to Yanni's music, but this in no way detracts from the album. Quite the contrary, the vocals are profoundly moving and make this album a phenomenal piece of artistry.

I typically don't bother writing a review for products like this one... there are usually plenty of other people that do so. But after reading the 20+ reviews for "Voces", I was compelled to write one because no one really documented any type of comparison between "Voices" and "Voces", which are SIGNIFICANTLY different releases!

- "Voces" includes 17 tracks on the CD, 12 of which do NOT appear on "Voices";
- "Voces" features a portfolio of singers, many of them well known (Jose Feliciano, Lucero, José José, etc.) while "Voices" concentrates on only 4, all of them "new" talent (except for Leslie Mills);
- the content of the "bonus" DVD is almost entirely different

"Voces" is targeting the spanish-speaking market, which is unfortunate for the DVD as many of the singers make comments in spanish during the "behind-the-scenes" segment that the producers did not "bother" to sub-title in english (while Yanni's comments, which are in english, are sub-titled in spanish).

The "Voces" DVD also features 5 tracks from the concert in Acapulco.

I must admit that I prefer the "Voices" version: Chloe, Ender and Nathan are very distinctive talents, while the majority of the singers on "Voces" are good, but not truly as exceptional.

What is obvious on BOTH releases is the chemistry between the participants: the joy, mutual respect and true talent transpires throughout, and is obvious on each release's DVD.

Yanni has of course created high-quality production for his concerts, though this tour has a bit too much of a Las Vegas flavour for my taste; I tend to prefer numbers which showcase the singer and the music, without the need for choreography.

I just got Yanni Voices today. All I have to say is if you like Yanni by himself, you will LOVE this CD. This is the first time ever that Yanni has brought vocals to the forefront of his music.

Yanni includes brilliant voices to this album, including Nathan Pacheco, Leslie Mills, Chloe, and Ender Thomas.

Something else I noticed is, this album was released by Disney! What a great status Yanni!

My favorite tracks on the album are Kill Me With Your Love and The Keeper, both with Cloe.

This album will definitely put you in a calm state of mind. I have a 3 year old trying to sing along...APPROVED!! HA HA

This one has a billion thumbs up for me. I have already transferred all the songs to my Zune!

I have had concerns about this album because I didn't know if I would like the lyrics. Yanni's music as instrumental music sweeps me away to places unknown and unimagined.

With that said, I can unequivocally recommend this album whether you are a long-time Yanni fan or just finding his music for the first time. The music still takes you places you could never have imagined. The vocalists are exquisite, the instrumentation superb and the overall sound is crafted by the hands of a loving music sculptor. It is simply breathtaking.

Yanni you have done it again and you have introduced the world to four incredible young artists. I'm now looking forward to the upcoming concerts like never before!

Everything about Yanni is great. His sensitive artist soul, humility and creativity show how connected he is with himself and with all human hearts. In this album, Yanni opens the door and welcomes four young vocal artists that show an astounding performance. It is so nice to hear lyrics on the beautiful and familiar Yanni songs. It's a pleasant surprise to unveil these new possibilities of every song. Nathan Pacheco's performance is particularly unbelievably amazing. I don't have words to describe. The DVD that comes together is of great video and audio quality and explains a lot about how these artists came together to create this great album. I actually watched more times the DVD than the CD. It's much better to watch Yanni and the vocalists interpretation of the songs in a high quality video with pure 5.1 audio. I liked Yanni music for quite a long time, but after hearing this album I'm sure he is the top musician alive.

Voices falls among the great music by Bocelli, Liata and Josh Groban
I'd have to agree with you about Groban and Bocelli but not Liata.

Where's "November Sky"?
It's not on the CD?! Hell, it was one of the three songs I could actually tolerate during the special. I knew I made the right choice by not buying the CD. Yanni, when you start with your instrumentals again, call me. Your music is too beautiful to be desecrated by words!

what is the difference between this and the sony version (16 tracks)
Joe the Yanni Voces CD is several Latin artists. It is my understanding (haven't received mine yet) that the DVD is not the same but rather a program which aired over the Televisa network aimed at the Mexican audience.

Chloe is a skilled singer and dancer and the lyrics were primarily composed... Read More

Anyone listened to Liata? They're music is unique.
Liata is unique and a mix of ballads in traditional style and that is nice if you're in the mood for that type of music; but, Liata is not on the same level as Yanni's "Voices."
