The platinum-selling pianist and composer Yanni announces his World Without Borders; an all-new show featuring the artist’s greatest hits as well as reinvented classics for one night only at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday, December 10 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 18 at 10 a.m.
With more than 40 platinum and gold albums and sales totaling over 25 million copies, Yanni is considered a global phenomenon. The artist’s live shows have amazed millions on every continent, including at The Acropolis in Greece, The Taj Mahal in India, The Forbidden City in China and The Royal Albert Hall in England. Now, Yanni returns to Orlando with a concert tour that will treat fans to his greatest instrumental hits, as well as a new version of his signature song “Nightingale,” and other classics that have not been recorded in decades such as “The End of August,” “The Rain Must Fall” and “Felitsa.”
“Truth of Touch”(2011), Yanni’s most recent album, returned the artist to the contemporary instrumental form that made him an international superstar. The album - his 19th overall and 16th studio release - is Yanni’s first collection of primarily instrumental music since 2003. It was recorded with producer-songwriter Ric Wake, Yanni’s key collaborator on his last two albums, “Yanni Voices” and the Spanish-language “YanniVoces.” The project grew organically out of a six-month break from touring and recording.
In addition, Yanni’s previous world tour coincided with the CD and DVD release of “Yanni: Live at El Morro, Puerto Rico”(Sony Music), capturing two sold-out concerts in December 2011 at the historic 16th-century Castillo San Felipe Del Morro in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The dates were the first-ever performances at this recognized UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) Heritage Site, and the shows were filmed in high-definition and recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. Performing at the castle represented a 20-year dream come true for Yanni, building on the legacy of iconic global sites that have played host to his concerts. “Yanni: Live at El Morro, Puerto Rico”made its national debut on PBS later in 2012. Yanni is one of public television’s all-time top fundraisers, and this latest special marks his 10th collaboration with PBS.
