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

Walton: Belshazzar’s Feast
Be the first to hear the world premiere of Gerber’s Music in Dark Times, an orchestral masterpiece dedicated to Vladimir Ashkenazy. Experience the emotion of Walton’s popular English oratorio, Belshazzar’s Feast. This dazzling work, featuring a large orchestra, eight-part choir, and soloist John Relyea, is a re-telling of the Israelites’ escape from exile in Babylon.
