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

Tchaikovsky :Piano Concerto No. 1
Sibelius: Symphony No. 2
Herbert Blomstedt leads the San Francisco Symphony through two intensely emotional works. Tchaikovsky’s captivating First Piano Concerto may reference a lost love, while the soaring Second Symphony of Jean Sibelius captures a sense of national pride that made him a Finnish cultural hero.
