If you enjoy Opera, chances are you’ll want to grab a copy of INSPIRATO – The Masterpiece Album from YANNI which will be available April 29, 2014. This album has taken 4 years to completely and 30 years to write the music that was inspiration for it. Yanni is joined by other well known voices of the world such as Plácido Domingo, Renée Fleming, Rolando Villazón, Katherine Jenkins, Vittorio Grigólo, Russell Watson, Micaëla Oeste, Nathan Pacheco, Chloe Lowery, Lauren Jelencovich, Plácido Domingo Jr., and Pretty Yende. An album surely not to miss out on!
The variety of the songs sung are in the languages of Italian, English, Spanish and a few others. The orchestral music and melodies have been a delight to listen to and the voices of the artist are full of such emotion! There are 13 tracks total which makes up about 50 minutes of playtime. The little booklet included with the album features a short write up of each artist singing on the album followed by their website. The lyrics of each song on the album are included but not in English. I would have liked to know what the songs sung were about without having to look it up later.

1. Renée Fleming – I Genitori
2. Vittorio Grigòlo – Come Un Sospiro
3. Plácido Domingo – Ode Alla Grecia
4. Katherine Jenkins – L’Ombra Dell’Angelo

Overall, sometimes if in the mood for some of Opera I will gladly put on some Yanni, this new album will be added to the mix certainly (especially after there’s a translation of all the songs in English!).
If you are interested in seeing Yanni in a city perhaps near you, be sure to check out the dates and times of upcoming tour of Latin America, Europe, India, USA & Canada.
