In a surreal twist, one of Japan's biggest rock stars also happens to be one of that country's most revered classical composers. His name is Yoshiki and the breadth of his musical accomplishment astonishes. The same man who, as the leader of the heavy metal band X Japan, sold out the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times was selected by the Japanese government to write a classical composition celebrating Emperor Akihito. Commissioned to write themes for events as diverse as the 2012 Grammys and the World Expo, he has now released a solo album of original instrumental works, Yoshiki Classical, to global acclaim. For this concert, he'll perform captivating melodies from the album. Learn More

A pleasant evening. Alexander's programming brought one aural delight after another. The arrangement of Noel was the nicest version I have ever heard. Definitely not your usual overdone fare. The Chorale sang with great precision, cohesiveness and nimble as Santa's elves. Another standout was the Bach that concluded the first half. The second half was more of a pop feel and the Chorale was as slick as an NBC Christmas special. Highly recommended evening for soaking in the spirit of the season.
