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 one night only, he will perform captivating melodies from his new album live at Davies Symphony Hall, playing solo piano with string quartet accompaniment. Learn More

Beautiful performance, and interesting choice of pieces. The Schulhoff trio for flute/piccolo,viola and bass was unusual and pleasanty quirky, the Borodin quartet was familiar but enjoyable, and the highlight- the Beethoven Archduke trio- was just spectacular, best version I've ever heard. All the performers were wonderful. Some distraction at first, due to some late audience arrivals (and the usual cough- prone folks), but this was a minor annoyance.
Ludwig van Beethoven’s glorious Archduke Trio, a vital landmark of the piano trio literature and one of the composer’s crowning achievements, anchors this afternoon’s selection of chamber music masterworks. The program also features Erwin Schulhoff’s Concertino for Flute, Viola, and Double Bass, a delicious foray into the entrancing sound world of an uncommon trio of instruments; and Alexander Borodin’s tender love letter to his wife, the deeply felt Second String Quartet.
