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

The acoustics were less than desirable ( I am NOT hard of hearing), a consistent experience at Davies Symphony Hall events. The venue planners seem to think that performers don't need a microphone--well, they do, including the magnificent Ms. Norman whose operatic voice seemed to have been swallowed by the horrible walls/ceiling/whatever of the symphony hall. Someone finally figured out that Ms. Norman did need a microphone to be heard during the second portion of her performance. Once we finally heard Ms. Norman's full singing voice and her glorious nuances, the magic finally began. I wish I could demand a refund for the first half of her show that, through no fault of Ms. Norman, was simply forgettable as we could barely hear her.
