Yanni Studio Album Inspirato – Yanni-Wake Entertainment has released press information for Yanni’s new vocal instrumental album titled Inspirato. Included is a special news update for the Yanni Worldwide Concert Tour in 2014.
If you are a Yanni fan there is a chance you have already heard the fantastic news about the new Yanni album due for release this spring on April 29, 2014. I received a press release from the Yanni-Wake people today about this breaking news story. Included in the special news announcement is updated information for Yanni’s Worldwide Concert Tour during 2014.
Inspirato, released on the Sony Classical Label, is an album which took 4 years to complete, from composing, performing, to a final recording.
Teaming up with record producer Rick Wake and celebrity opera star Placido Domingo, Inspirato features premium vocalists from around the world. This contemporary instrumental vocal album has 13 songs with each song featuring one of twelve vocalists, whose biography can be read at Yanni.com.
Another important aspect of this master opus from Yanni is the album composition itself, taken from a deeply personal viewpoint. The creative stimulus for Inspirato is drawn from the past 30 years of his career as a celebrity artist and a true-to-life, personal story of opera star Pretty Yenda, from South Africa.
To me, its clear Yanni is at the top of his game as a professional composer and performer so this personal, “from the heart” album is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression on the listener.
Fans are already expressing elation over the special announcement at Yanni’s Facebook page, and expect the anticipation to grow as we reach full bloom on the April 29, 2014 release date this spring.
In concert news, if you check Yanni.com you will also see an expansive list of new concert dates are now announced. Beginning in March 2014, Yanni will begin a worldwide tour covering over 20 countries, which includes the U.S. and Canada. And more dates will be added to this extensive tour as the year progresses, so check for more updates on the Yanni Tour page.
For many people this will be their first chance to experience the extraordinary music performed by one of the greatest international concert artists of our time.
After covering Yanni and his orchestra for years now it seems I do have a sense for developing stories about the artist. Awhile back, I remember looking at a press photo of Yanni practicing on a concert piano at the Kravis Center. I now see the Kravis Center photo (top left photo) is the album art cover selected for Inspirato.
I thought there may be a news story coming up at the time, but nothing like this, so I guess everyone is a little surprised by this latest development. Considering the new album and additional tour updates for 2014, this is fantastic news indeed!
The purchase price listed for the Inspirato audio CD is $14.97, which is a real bargain price in my view. The composition and recording of this particular album is rare – plus the mega collection of the world’s finest vocal artists will surely put Inspirato at the Best Sellers Chart at Amazon and Top 10 Chart at Billboard!
