Yanni-Live at El Morro, Puerto Rico turned out to be an intensely glorious concert event for fans of the international concert artist Yanni, and his sensational orchestra, who are unquestionably, a quality group of the best artists worldwide. If you have ever had an opportunity to attend a live Yanni concert firsthand, or have watched a televised live PBS concert, then you know each and every concert performance is special, regardless of the venue or historical significance. For over 30 years, Yanni has made his presence known as a leading international concert artist with around one billion admirers. A single concert event, Yanni Live at the Acropolis is the top fundraising program for PBS, which had an astounding 500 million television viewers from 65 countries. The Taj Mahal in India and The Forbidden City in China concert are more examples where PBS viewership reached a television audience of 250 million people.Read more ›
Struggling with the unknown elements of the weather, which is clearly evident via the DVD presentation, Yanni begins the show boldly by presenting his audience with the gorgeous title track from his last studio album Truth Of Touch. He then double dares himself by jumping right into the more aggressive "Vertigo" also from his brand new album. Talking charge on the keyboards, Yanni does not hesitate to allow fellow keyboard player Ming Freeman to spotlight later into the song, supplemented by the pounding drums of Adams.
While there are only ten tracks on the cd live performance, Yanni chooses wisely by also sharing two live renditions of older songs for the first time. The first obvious one is "Nightingale" taken from the Tribute album with a simply sublime vocal performance from Lauren Jelencovich. She continues her magnificent vocal performance courtesy of "Ode To Humanity" (previously titled "Aria" that received significant exposure on the British Airways advertisement).Read more ›
One of the things he touched on the DVD side is that it was very difficult to have a full night's concert due to the storms. There are so many rain storms in Puerto Rico, especially the Northern and Eastern coasts. (The Southern to Southwestern coast, by contrast, is a bit more arid.) I wish they had thought better before exposing all that electronic and musical equipment to the rainstorms. Weather is quite unpredictable over there. Believe me, I know.
I'm glad he goes to Puerto Rico mostly for pleasure, and I'm quite certain he's not the only one. I met a lady close to where I live who is Greek. She had been to Puerto Rico before and told me about someone she had met in Old San Juan who was very successful at his business there, and spoke Spanish perfectly well. As soon as she told him she was Greek, he started speaking Greek. It turns out there are quite a few Greeks who have made Puerto Rico their permanent home, and had even married local people. I haven't been back in a long time, but my family and I intend to visit again, especially now that my children are a little more ready to handle travel. Who knows if we see him somewhere in El Viejo San Juan?
