个人简介

  Yiannis Chryssomallis[7] (Greek: Γι?ννη? Χρυσομ?λλη?, Giánnis Chrysomállis; born November 14, 1954), known professionally as Yanni (/?jɑ?ni/ YAH-nee), is a Greek composer, keyboardist, pianist, and music producer who has spent his adult life in the United States.  Yanni continues to use the musical shorthand that he developed as a child,[8][9] blending jazz, classical, soft rock, and world music[4] to create predominantly instrumental works.[10] Although this genre of music was not well suited for commercial pop radio and music television,[3][11] Yanni received international recognition by producing concerts at historic monuments and by producing videos that were broadcast on public television.[11] His breakthrough concert, Live at the Acropolis, yielded the second best-selling music concert video of all time.[12][13][14] Additional historic sites for Yanni's concerts have included India's Taj Mahal, China's Forbidden City, the United Arab Emirates' Burj Khalifa,[15] Russia's Kremlin,[16] Puerto Rico's El Morro castle,[17] Lebanon's ancient city of Byblos,[18] Tunisia's Roman Theatre of Carthage,[19] India's Laxmi Vilas Palace,[20] the Egyptian pyramids and Great Sphinx of Giza,[21][22] and the Amman Citadel.[23]  At least sixteen of Yanni's albums have peaked at No. 1 in Billboard's "Top New Age Album" category,[24] and two albums (Dare to Dream and In My Time) received Grammy Award nominations.[14] Yanni has performed in more than 30 countries on five continents,[25] and through late 2015 Yanni had performed live in concert before more than 5 million people and had accumulated more than 40 platinum and gold albums globally, with sales totaling over 25 million copies.[26][27] A longtime fundraiser for public television,[2][28] Yanni's compositions have been used on commercial television programs, especially for sporting events.[14][29][30] He has written film scores and the music for an award-winning British Airways television commercial.[29]  Yanni popularized the
