* Expanded package includes new photos and new liner notes. * The DVD features the most dramatic footage filmed of Yanni live in concert. * The DVD contains backstage interviews and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the video. On the night of September 25, 1993, beneath the golden glow of the Parthenon, a standing-room-only crowd assembled to witness a stunning spectacle of sight and sound. The majestic stone arches of the 2,000 year-old Herod Atticus Theatre became the setting for a performance of a lifetime. The passionate crowd warmly embraced its native son, internationally known composer and performer, Yanni, who was returning home after two decades in America.

Very nice music, live performances capture dynamic energy.
CD Now review excerpt: "Yanni, who in concert sometimes strikes the rapturous two-keyboard "iron-cross" pose that served as one of Keith Emerson's trademarks, uses, as ELP did, classical and world-music influences to elevate pop-inclined compositions to more sophisticated levels. He then turbocharges the whole concoction with bold strokes of prog-rock bravura to give his finest pieces a dramatic, chest-swelling, larger-than-life impact....Yanni possesses a much stronger romantic streak...At his best, Yanni strikes incendiary sparks with the driving, celebratory quality of his music, and this production, culling some of the best audio moments from his much-televised 1993 concert performance in Athens, is a most appealing showcase. Yanni can sometimes strike the sonic hammer as forcefully as a Greek god ("Santorini," "Keys to Imagination") and, on this album at least, gives even overtly romantic pieces ("One Man's Dream," "Swept Away") a warmly masculine flair. Beautifully arranged and recorded; a pleasure to experience."

"If you're going to buy one Yanni DVD this would be the one. It's just plain excellent in all aspects of performance, production, & songs. Anything Yanni did after this production (either CD or DVD) just illustrates how he suborned his artistic talents and started chasing the dollar."
Yanni is great

"This man and his music will open
the dark spaces in your heart and
let the light heal your soul.
Beautiful and awe inspiring.
