Yanni Live! The Concert Event

 (2005)

Yanni Live! The Concert Event Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

How many artists have had their music played at almost every Summer and Winter Olympics broadcast for the past 2 decades? Who has sold out 10 consecutive shows at the Radio City Music Hall? How many performers have had a TV special seen in 65 countries by half a billion people, was one of the top fundraising artists for PBS, and has the #2 bestselling music video of all time? Yanni is an artist who crosses all demographics in his appeal.

For more about Yanni Live! The Concert Event and the Yanni Live! The Concert Event Blu-ray release, see Yanni Live! The Concert Event Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.



Yanni Live! The Concert Event Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Shot with 16 high definition video cameras, Yanni Live! astral projects onto Blu-ray with a 1080i/AVC-encoded transfer that's tight, bright, and true-to-source. If you've been patiently waiting to see what Yanni's Tom Selleck+NASCAR driver mustache looks like in high-def, well, it's as glorious and full and perfectly groomed as you've likely imagined. The image is generally sharp, nicely rendering the fine detail in Yanni's short-sleeved, chain mail-look-a-like sweater and the texture and sheen of the various instruments' surfaces. With multi-hued stage lights galore and lasers crisscrossing the auditorium, the picture is filled with vivid, natural-looking color. Black levels are adequately deep and while contrast is usually strong, the image can look a bit flat at times when the stage is overwhelmed with bright lighting. The transfer also occasionally demonstrates some of high definition video's less desirable traits. Hard lines can look overly edgy, fine lines sometimes show slight aliasing, and highlights blow out easily, giving a blotchy, pixilated look to the overheated parts of the picture. Still, noise is mostly unobtrusive, except during the darker shots of the crowd, where it spikes considerably. Overall, if you've seen a concert shot on high definition video before, you won't be surprised or disappointed by this one.


Yanni Live! The Concert Event Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Whatever you think of Yanni's music—personally, I try not to think of it at all—it's impossible to deny that this concert sounds pretty damn good, objectively speaking. Captured live with 125 channels of digital audio and mixed into a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, Yanni Live! will seduce the ears of the presumably narrow crossover population in the Venn diagram of Yanni-lovers and hardcore audiophiles. Like the compositions themselves, the mix here does sound a little too perfect, too tidy and free of personality, but at the same time, it's incredibly clear and balanced, with powerful dynamics and ultra-detailed sonic texture. Listen to the snake-in-the-reeds timbre of an Egyptian-sounding oboe solo, the bright brass of trumpets, a cello's deep and vowelic lament, or the breathy, bird-on-a-wire tweets of an intentionally overblown flute. Bass is grounded and distinct, cymbals crash and snares snap tightly, and even more delicate sounds, like the hammered dulcimer and harp, come through with brightness and presence. The music fills every channel, each instrument clearly defined but an inseparable part of the whole. The disc also includes a Linear PCM 2.0 stereo track that's just as potent and well-mixed.
