The Dream Concert: Live from the Great Pyramids of Egypt
The pianist takes a victory lap with a set focused on his new age smashes. Sweetly flowing melody is the centerpiece here, though the ensemble at this gig has a particularly luxurious texture. Yanni’s keyboard playing is outfitted with graceful strings—including harp—during the opening number, before some percussive exultation introduces the classic “For All Seasons.” These are beloved entries from the instrumentalist’s career, though Yanni’s ability to bring each track to life is key to this document’s charm. The well-mixed audience sounds will make you feel like you’re right there with the crowd, too.
