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

I have seen Mahler's Fifth with three orchestras and cherish a couple of recordings and this was an experience to rank with the best of them. I felt MTT brought out a certain flowing lyrical quality to certain passages in the symphony which I particularly enjoyed.
I was especially glad to get these Goldstar tickets as I felt annoyed with the SF Symphony for sending an email out offering tickets from $15, after spending a while looking on their site (which also advertised $15 tickets) I rand them up only to discover they'd sold those tickets out 'ages ago' - a case of false advertising I believe. While I paid more than that for the Goldstar tickets, I thought they were excellent value and perfect situated in the Orchestra.
Help send the San Francisco Symphony off on a successful fall tour at this special concert. During the 2010-11 season, the Orchestra will perform at the world famous Lucerne Festival in Switzerland and in other cities around the world. Get a sneak peek of Michael Tilson Thomas and the Orchestra before they travel to Europe, and take advantage of summertime prices on every seat in the house!
