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

Meet Simon Trpceski for a CD signing in the Symphony Store following the concerts.
Former Music Director Edo de Waart returns for the first time since 1997, introducing many listeners to the music of Franz Schreker, whose lush and dramatic work could be considered a precursor to the rich film scoring we know today. Rachmaninoff’s sophisticated Fourth Piano Concerto is characteristic in its enormity, but with an unexpected modernness of sound. In a climactic work suitable for de Waart’s return, thundering Organ Symphony provides abundant thrills.
