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

“The fine mezzo Sasha Cooke … sang Les Nuits d’ete with an expressive, amber-hued voice …” —The New York Times
Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony perform an all-Berlioz program, including Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture, Les Nuits d’été, and Harold in Italy. This concert will feature mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke and new SF Symphony Principal Viola Jonathan Vinocour. Be the first to hear these works before the SFS performs them at the summer 2010 Lucerne Festival.
Inside Music, an informative talk with Scott Foglesong and free to ticketholders, begins one hour prior to concerts.
