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

We were invited to this by our son and his girlfriend and couldn't have been more pleased with the performance. It was more than outstanding. I'm definitely buying the CD to just listen to this beautiful music. The crowd was mostly 16-40 and they appreciated every moment. The composer was in the audience and he was absolutely darling. What a fantastic evening.
