How does Yanni compose music

Yanni enchants Düsseldorf

For the first time during his brilliant world career, Yanni is touring Germany! The Greek pianist, keyboardist and composer likes to play his concerts with the (mostly) instrumental songs in unfamiliar places. He is now giving three shows in Germany at the end of April, including on April 26th at 8 p.m. in the Mitsubishi Electric Hall.

Since his special form of music, a mixture of jazz, classical, rock and world music, did not seem suitable for pop-heavy music and radio broadcasts, Yanni gained international recognition by holding concerts at historic buildings and producing videos that were shown on public television . The concert that gave him his breakthrough, "Yanni Live at the Acropolis," became the second best-selling music video of all time. Other historical places for Yanni's concerts were the Taj Mahal (India), the Forbidden City (China), Burj Khalifa (United Arab Emirates), the Kremlin (Russia) and El Morro Castle (Puerto Rico).

His grandiose concerts each drove 12,000 spectators to euphoric reactions, so that their DVD recording has the only suitable title: "The Concert Event"! Worldwide cares Yannis Music mix for superlatives: more than five million people in 37 countries have attended the performances of this internationally successful top live act. Its 19 recordings, which have been released since 1980, have found 25 million buyers. For this, the native Greek was awarded 40 platinum and gold albums.

In the spring there Yanni now including a 14-piece “United Nations” orchestra made his concert debut in Germany. In addition to songs from the latest 16th studio CD (“Truth Of Touch”), he will play the most famous songs from his own pen. Some things may sound familiar to the listener in this country, as they are pieces that were heard during the TV broadcast of the Olympic Games, the US Open and the Tour de France, among other things.

Tickets between 53.50 and 88 euros are available at all known advance booking offices or at dticket.
