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

This was "Mozart Lite", which is totally appropriate for a summer concert. I loved the young conductor, James Gaffigan. He added an encore (Eine Klene Nachmusik), which is Mozart at his schmaltziest, then added his own touch by leaving the conductor's podium and going to sit behind the orchestra as they continued to play flawlessly. Totally enjoyable evening.

The San Francisco Symphony and Maestro Gaffigan offer a transformative evening of Mozart. Jeremy Denk returns for the eloquent C Major Piano Concerto (whose rarefied Andante became widely popularized as the Theme from the film Elvira Madigan). Mozart’s poetic Symphony No. 40 provides a perfect cadence to this exquisite program.
