In My Time is Yanni's ninth album, released on the Private Music label in 1993, (see 1993 in music). This album is a gentler collection of piano-focused pieces. It attained Platinum status and was the second Grammy nomination for Yanni.[1] It peaked at #1 on "Billboard's "Top New Age Albums" chart and at #24 on the "Billboard 200" chart in the same year.[2]

The corresponding concert tour for the year was Yanni Live, The Symphony Concerts 1993.

"This was the kind of album I've been wanting to make for years," Yanni says, "a clear and honest album that would be consistent in its mood. I wanted the audience to feel the human being behind the music. One human being to another. For that reason, I intentionally kept the background instrumentation and production at a minimum."[3]

In a review by Backroads Music/Heartbeats, "Yanni's latest is another extension of his creative spirit and stirring passion for life. Focusing on piano as his primary instrument, Yanni infuses his "signature" style with timeless, eloquent themes and plenty of romantic energy. No longer are rhythm and dynamic currents as vital to his sound, since he seems to have stopped fueling his music with 'rocket power'. His romantic outpourings lend a personal nature to In My Time, and this new effort should be received with enthusiasm far and wide. Yanni is uniquely expressive, and this new music is deeply touching on many levels."[5]

Additional notes[edit]

I also wish to thank my band: Osama Afifi (bass), Charlie Bisharat (violin), Karen Briggs (violin), Michael Bruno (percussion), Julie Homi (keyboards), Bradley Joseph (keyboards), Sachi McHenry (cello), and my crew.[6]
