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

Good program. Every piece was enjoyable. The young piano player burned the keyboard and made and an exciting and emotional presentation. It has been a long time since I have gone to a concert and felt so please the the entire presentation.
A thrilling night in store! Pacific Symphony’s ever-popular Tchaikovsky Spectacular features the thrilling climax of thundering cannons and spectacular fireworks in the 1812 Overture. Before that, delightful music from Swan Lake, plus, acclaimed pianist Benjamin Pasternack performs one of the repertoire’s most powerful, most demanding and most popular works — Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3, featured in the 1996 hit movie Shine.
