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

Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra
Vladimir Spivakov, Conductor and Soloist
Alexander Ghindin, piano
Maestro Artist Management is proud to announce a highly-anticipated performance by one of the world’s most acclaimed chamber orchestras, Moscow Virtuosi, led by internationally-renowned violinist and conductor Vladimir Spivakov. Comprised of top-ranking soloists and former principle chairs of the great orchestras of Russia, the Moscow Virtuosi, under the leadership of Vladimir Spivakov, has been in demand at the world’s most prestigious festivals and concert halls since its inception over 30 years ago.
The soloist for this performance is brilliant Russian pianist Alexander Ghindin, who rapidly established himself as a major force on the international piano scene since becoming the youngest prize winner ever of the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1994, later gaining Second Prize at Brussels International Queen Elisabeth Competition in 1999. In 2007 he won the first prize of the Cleveland International Piano Competition, impressing judges with a performance of Rachmaninoff No. 3 with the Cleveland Orchestra.
