A collection of favorites that were previously released on Yanni's many earlier albums, "In Celebration of Life" features mostly high-energy selections. The exuberant, beat-filled compositions are both motivating and uplifting. There is also an innocent, wonder-filled joie de vivre about this music that can release one's inner child. This compilation album, and also another similar one--"Reflections of Passion"--are great introductions to Yanni's multi-layered synthesizer music. Try also his recent release, "Ethnicity", for more of his upbeat celebrations of life.
I bought this album because I new the music was upbeat and energetic, not romantic or relaxing. I had this album in the early 90s, so I knew the music. I play this music for my kids (age 2-8) when they are exercising or just playing in the house.
Very nice to listen to while you are doing something else. Very calming and soothing. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in new age music.
