The Dream Concert
You have to hand it to Yanni: He is a fantastic live entertainer. The New Age maestro has released a number of live albums, but The Dream Concert, recorded in front of the Great Pyramids and the Giant Sphinx of Egypt, may just be his crowning achievement—and that’s saying something! The two-disc album features not just the music but also a fantastic DVD of the concert, and it’s easily one of the most essential recordings I have ever reviewed. I was lucky to go to a Yanni concert in my hometown of Minneapolis years ago, and this man can put on a show! ’nuff said—this is a killer album!
