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.
