Hi Patricia, You described so well how I have always felt about Yanni's new music. Yanni's instrumentals are full of emotion and when these four vocalist are added the result is a wide range of emotions...triumph, pain, love, excitement, beauty, hope and so much more. Yanni's special touch is felt in each song along with all of the emotion from these very talented artist. I feel very blessed to have been able to witness the unveiling of this new phase in Yanni's music.
It's great to hear from you Just think, if we're excited now, imagine how much fun it's going to be when we get to see all of them perform at a concert! I came to the web site and just let the music play as I was working yesterday, and thought about how much time and effort they must have put into each song. Each song tells it's own story and I think what each artist was trying to convey really comes across. My son-in-law and daughter write their own music and I've seen what kind of work and dedication it takes to get the end result. I think in observing them, I can't help but be excited about Yanni's "Voices". It is very exciting to be able to watch these four young artist's dreams come true, especially after all of their hard work. They have done a wonderful job with the new music and when they tour with Yanni it will be incredible...can't wait!
Sign me up for the IMAX. Let's just have one set up all the time for those of us that can't get enough. . . .
All of Yanni's work is a such a powerful force, it takes me places that I am unable to find anywhere else. I have been having a lot of growth spurts lately, and as exciting as it can be, it also is painful and takes a lot of energy. Where do I go with this? Back to Yanni to feed my soul the nutrients of love, passion, depth, forgiveness and freedom. So many of the pieces takes me to heights and strength that only eagles possess. And as fragile and frolicking as a butterfly. . . are these words able to capture the feelings that go through me?
I played nightingale before coming on the board, and from a beautiful creation of a bird, comes a piece that can move me to tears. It is language to the bird, and freedom for souls. As I dig in my garden and listen to birds, I wonder if they know of the power of their song? I never tire of it.
The pure intention of plants growing, the pure intention of notes on a page, the pure intention of those that listen.
PATRICIA, TERESA...GREAT WORDS , BOTH OF YOU ! WHEN ALL THIS FIRST STARTED OUT THERE WAS MUCH CONCERN THAT THIS WAS GOING TO CHANGE THINGS AND WE WOULD SEE A DIFFERENT YANNI AND SOME WERE CONCERNED WITH THAT CHANGE...NOW IT IS A WONDERFUL FEELING TO KNOW THAT HIS NOTES HAS GIVEN THE GIFT TO THESE YOUNG ADULTS AND HOPEFULLY MAKE A WONDEFUL LIFE FOR THEM , AND MORE WILL POUR OUT ACROSS THE WORLD...I SEE AND FEEL WHAT HE IS DOING MORE SO THAN EVER BEFORE AND I AM SO VERY PROUD OF WHAT HE HAS AND THESE ARTISTS HAVE ACCOMPLISHED TOGETHER.
