Grammy-winning composer and music director Yanni ended his four-city tour of China, with a concert in Chengdu, on Monday evening.
Yanni performed at the Master Card Center of Beijing on Oct 1 and 2, Shanghai Grand Stage on Oct 4, and Haixinsha Park of Guangzhou on Oct 7. Besides his classic works, he also presented pieces from his 2011 album, Truth of Touch.
The tour marked his return to China 14 years after his concert in the Forbidden City in Beijing in 1997 when he won over Chinese audiences with his special composition, The Nightingale.
One day before the Chengdu concert, Yanni visited the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding to adopt a 2-month old female panda. He named the cub Santorini, which means peace in Greek.
