Pianists with such a vast repertoire as Yiannis are few and far between. With well over 3000 tunes at his finger-tips and with such a variety of style, from the good old standards – sweet and low, through challenging musicals like ‘Phantom of the Opera’, to hot jazz, with much more in between.
To my very favorite pianist – I fly to Rhodes as often as I can (and have done for some years now) just to hear you play. There is no one I would rather listen to. Especially your versions of ‘Around Midnight’. Superb!!
If you like solo piano, you’ll like Yiannis very, very much. For each of his tunes he creates a memorable melody which immediately draws you into the music. Then he uses his musical artistry to develop and improvise on his melodies and you are transported into the theme of the music. You are then able to make that ‘Aha!’ connection between artist/listener and the tunes become meaningful and touching to you as well. I enjoyed my evening with Yiannis and his music and I think you will too.
