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
Quotes & Highlights
“Ms. Josefowicz gave a thrilling performance … playing with gleaming sound, supple technique and , amazingly, from memory.”— The New York Times
Two ardent champions of contemporary composition, Maestro Salonen and violinist Leila Josefowicz have collaborated numerous times, and in fact, his Violin Concerto was composed for her. A four movement work that covers a wide range of emotions, the piece, with its “brilliant surface and wonderful sound” (The New York Times), presents a vivid complement to the ever-reverberant sounds of Wagner as witnessed in excerpts from his unforgettable Ring cycle.__
