This concert from evening of September 23, 1993, must have been a wonderful event to have experienced...the VHS of it is a polished gem that will never go out of style. The professionalism and musicianship is outstanding, and the setting is magical...with 2000 year old arches surrounding the open air stage, and the amazing structures of ancient Greece lit up against the night sky.
I think Yanni has envisaged this album for all kinds of people. The scores chosen are really excellent and appropriate. All the artists are given equal chance to exhibit their skills. Especially the violinist - Wow!
I'm not a fan of "new age" music. However, I am a fan of Yanni Live at the Acropolis. The location of this concert is under the ancient Greek parthenon. The production of the show is great, the lighting makes the ancient theatre seem like it's in the same shape as it were in its prime. I saw this on PBS a long time ago and I haven't lost interest in the music since; the DVD reaffirms to a greater extent. Something special took place at the Acropolis that night and the video recreates most of the show.
