    Yanni should have on this. His albums in the 1980’s Out Of Silence and Keys To Imagination and subsequent massive success brought worldwide attention to instrumental music unlike any of the above names.

    Interesting list, that at least 25% of the Albums I own. As a long time subscriber to Echoes, I have found my musical home.
