    Just fantastic

    This is just plain one of the best concert videos I have ever seen. The music is fantastic and lushly orchestrated. Watching the video (time and time again) has given me lifelong inspiration and an unquenchable passion for music. I play piano and Native American flute and each time I watch the movie of this concert I feel refreshed and impassioned to work at my music. It's a must see for any lover of music.

    Yanni - the best in the world

    I have Yanni Live at the Acropolis, Tribute, and most of his CD's. I also had the privilage of seeing him in concert this year in San Jose, Ca. He is one of a kind, and his show is unbelivable. I would stand in line to get tickets for his show, and I can honestly say, I would not do it for any other performer. He is number ONE. His CD Love Songs, is just so mellow and soothing, I listen to it every night. I watch his DVD Live At The Acropolis at least twice a week, more if my family didn't think I was a little overboard for Yanni. He is great.

    Great Work

    I don't believe Yanni is new age music,Yanni is so much more, I have been listening to him for over 15 year's,and I think he is so great,there is no one else like him,and I can't see anyone ever being that great.

    Simply Awesome!

    If you have never seen a master musician(s) in action, you owe it to yourself to see this video. The performance of Yanni and the Royal Philharmonic Orcrestra was absolutely incredible!!! The battle of the violins between the ''Lady in Red'' and the ''Master Violinist'' was by itself worth buying the tape! I have traveled the world and have seen some the worlds best musicians perform, but this perfornance tops them all - INCREDIBLE!!!!!!
