I was wondering what happened to Pedro Eustache in Yanni's orchestra? I understood b/c the voices singing, that the flute wouldn't have been the leading melody anymore, but I don't see him any of Yanni's instrumental tour concerts. I was wondering if anyone knew about it?
I miss Pedro and the large orchestra that Yanni had at one time. I'm sure that scaling back the number of musicians touring with Yanni has to do with financial reasons. Everybody has to cut back bacause of the sad state of the economy and high cost of expenses.
it's impossible to care for someone and not care about the essential qualities of the ones they surround themselves with personally and professionally. i admire where pedro is at in his own personal, and professional, evolution and miss his presence in yanni's music. i sincerely hope that, although absent from the music, his presence continues in yanni's life.
When I last saw Pedro, I asked him the same thing. He said he didn't know why. The only way to find out was to ask Yanni himself. So, I guess that's the answer. Pedro would love to be back on the tour, but he has not been asked. I know I would love to see him back. He is a wonderful talent as well as a wonderful person. I am lucky enough to live fairly near him and I get to see him once in a while, but much of his work is in all parts of the world.
Thanks Linda. I was hoping Pedro would be in the tour this time around. We miss him being a part of the entourage. He just added so much to the performance. Muriel isn't going to the concert this time around. When I told her that it didn't look like Pedro was going to be in the tour, she decided not to go.
Sorry if i'm saying this...but he is the only person missing in Yanni's orchestra...he used to add a lot of colour and magic to Yanni's music and perhaps he is the only member who is irreplaceable. Karen is such an outstanding talent but Samvel pretty much outclasses everyone. The best part of Pedro was his command over various types of wind instruments...he is just class and all energy..
