Yanni net worth: Yanni is a Greek pianist, keyboardist, composer and music producer who has a net worth of $40 million. Yanni has earned his net worth through his many performances as a pianist as well as his many albums and tours. Born Yiannis Hryssomallis on November 14, 1954, on the Greek island Kalamata, Yanni is a self-thought musician who has spent his adult life and carved out his career in the United States. He showed his interest and talent for music at an early age, but Yanni's parents instead of enrolling him in music school, they encouraged him to follow his own muse and learn playing the piano in his own way. This turned out to be a good decision as Yanni uses even today the musical shorthand that he developed as a child, mixing jazz, classical, soft rock and other world music to compose original works. Even though he attended the University of Minnesota and earned a B.A. in Psychology, Yanni has never walked away from music. On the contrary, he continued his personal study of piano and other keyboard instruments, as well as he joined a Minneapolis-based rock group called Chameleon, who toured regionally and cut several self-released albums. It was in 1980, when he embarked on a solo career, recording and releasing an album of his own material, Optimystique. The album attracted listeners' attention and it was re-released by Atlantic Records in 1984, and then again by Private Music in 1989. More albums followed, and Yanni rose to international fame thanks to his concerts held at historic monuments and his videos broadcast on public television. He made a breakthrough with the concert, Yanni Live at the Acropolis, which saw the second best-selling music video of all time. Other of Yanni's notable concerts at historic sites include India's Taj Mahal, China's Forbidden City and the United Arab Emirates' Burj Khalifa, among others. What's more, two of his albums (Dare to Dream and In My Time) earned Grammy nominations, and he has also written film scores, as well as the music for an award-winning British Airways television commercial. Having encountered many cultures in his travels, Yanni's music is considered to reflect his "one world, one people" philosophy.
