Finally the official website has been updated today! Yay!
It's been quite awhile since I last heard of his new compositions since 2006's Live Event. Now he's up to something new. You can see what he is up to this time, from the video at the site.
Although as a fan I'm delighted to get the latest updates, but I express my disappointment and worry. You see, now Yanni is into vocals music, in other words, singers are brought into his music.
I like Yanni's music for it's instrumental masterpiece, but at the same time I dislike vocals being added into instrumental music. From the songs I heard from the video, someone's singing Italian lyrics for Adagio in C minor, while some ladies singing for the other song. My first impression tells me that this music is turning into pop....
One thing for sure, is that all these worried and disappointments could be temporary. It is just a sneak-preview for an entirely new stuffs from Yanni, and I should not judge things at first glance. Perhaps I'll change my mind once more stuffs to be revealed in future?
Yanni is still one of the best composers I ever heard of. :)
