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 orchestra was in particularly fine form. The Brahms Serenade was exquisite--a piece I had never heard before. Anne Sofie von Otter has one of the finest voices singing today.Pitch, phrasing, emotion--she has it all. Check out her Grieg recording and her crossover album w/Elvis Costello and her latest jazz effort!
