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

Even though I'm a pianist I don't attend many solo piano concerts since my first love is chamber music. But András Schiff's playing is so phenomenal I determined to hear at least one of his concerts this season. Yesterday's performance of Bach's English Suites was the most amazing solo piano concert I've ever attended, and despite my reluctance, there have been many. Moving, transporting, astounding - there are not enough adjectives in English - or perhaps even Hungarian - to describe yesterday's concert. What a musical wonder we have in András Schiff! Thank you San Francisco Performances and thank you goldstar!
