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

Great performance. Two hour long concert with no intermission is tough to sit still through. On my recording I only listen to the first movement. After the pre-concert lecture I had greater appreciation for the following movements.
Michael Tilson Thomas – conductor
Katarina Karnéus – mezzo-soprano
Women of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus
San Francisco Girls Chorus; Susan McMane – director
San Francisco Symphony
Mahler – Symphony No. 3
