Riconoscimento (Tribute) - Yanni

If you're still counting, Inspirato is celebrated Greek composer Yanni Chryssomallis' seventeenth studio album, released last month on Sony Masterworks.

A record some four years in the making, Inspirato finds Yanni teamed up with tenor, baritone and Los Angeles Opera head Plácido Domingo--as well as Ric Wake (the producer behind the CD and DVD for Yanni Voices back in 2009)--to handpick vocalists to perform songs that Yanni has released over his career.

Featuring vocal contributions from Plácido Domingo (and Plácido Domingo, Jr.), reigning Super Bowl champ Renée Fleming, Welsh songbird Katherine Jenkins and Mexican-French tenor Rolando Villazón, the record delivers on talents galore.

"[Inspirato] is about all the loves in my life. Never losing faith in humanity and our incredible ability to overcome just about anything we are challenged with," Yanni told Billboard. "It is also about imagination, creativity, love, kindness, compassion, integrity, parents, country, peace, unity, belief and faith in our future…it is all possible."

If ever the impossible seemed plausible, then it would certainly be inspired to exist during the gloriously shot video for Inspirato's seventh track, "Riconoscimento" (or, in Italian, "Tribute"). Yes, that's both Domingoes you hear here, rounded out with Nathan Pacheco, Micaëla Oeste and Chloe Lowery. Watch the lyric video for Yanni's Riconoscimento on Classicalite.
