Yanni rocks the house?

By JESSE SCOTT

Date published: 2/17/2005

YOUTH CORRESPONDENT

Yanni's music is multilingual--it's reached and inspired nearly every corner of the earth.

On Sunday, the Greek new-age phenomenon brought his message to the MCI Center.

His ensemble (consisting of strings, drums and brass) was decked in formalwear as he stood before them in a gray sweater and black Dockers.

And, of course, his mustache was perfectly groomed and his hair was flowing--don't count on the man going bald anytime soon.

Yanni mastered the art of kicking it up and bringing it down. He balanced his pianissimo pieces with an array of songs that were peppy and reminiscent of the Olympic Games.

"Marching Season" was performed at an extreme tempo and featured Charlie Adams on percussion. Yanni pounded away on the grand piano as Adams slammed drums with sticks and limbs--he'd give Travis Barker of Blink-182 a run for his money.

Between his nature-esque pieces, he brought the energy down with soft classical bits such as "Nightingale." The Asian-influenced piece told a story without words--flashing images of eastern culture plastered the backdrop as a Chinese flute spoke notes of inspiration.

Yanni brings the best of several worlds together through his art. It's rare to find an artist who incorporates Australian didgeridoos, bass guitars and violins into a single piece.

But with Yanni, anything is possible. The man is innovative and his shows are a cultural experience.
