As I'm sure is true for many of you, I've been a fan of Yanni's music for many years. However, some of his work that I enjoy a lot isn't(?) yet available publicly on CD...or is it...and, if not, when might it be?
I'm referring to (perhaps among others):
* "Nican" (the piece that opened the "Voices" TV concert special with the chorus of kids singing onstage with Yanni)
* "Theory of Everything" (a piece sung by Leslie Mills with quite an appealing tempo to it)
* Various TV sports themes that Yanni composed (I know that "Santorini", which CBS used for US Open Tennis for several years has long since been available, but "In Celebration of Man", as one example, which is NBC's music for US Open Golf, hasn't been)
Are there any plans, please, to release this music publicly on CD and, if so, when might that be?
In my opinion it would be wonderful to release an album with old instrumental compositions,songs recorded years ago "In Celebration of Man", "Mother Night" (released in the compilation "Piano Two") or for example the versions of "Desire" and "A Love For Life" played at the concert at the Royal Albert Hall.. It would be great!
Myky, I agree!! I think there is also another sports song named Fanfare that is not available (maybe I'm wrong on that, but I think it is played for golf events). I've also noticed on a couple of recent commercials that snatches of some of the music really sounds like parts of some Yanni songs. This could be my imagination---or a marketing tool (like using people in commercials who look like "famous" people).
Yes,you're right Patricia There's another song named "Fanfare".There's also another song that I like:"World Dance"(released in an edition of the album "Yanni Live!The concert event").I don't have that particular edition of that cd..so,I think that an album with these old instrumental songs would be fantastic!
