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

Quotes & Highlights
“…[Heras-Casado is a] superb new podium talent, with a fluidly expressive technique, a fine ear for sonorities, and suave rhythmic command.” — San Francisco Chronicle
Pablo Heras-Casado, who made a critically-acclaimed San Francisco Symphony debut in 2010, returns to lead an evening steeped in contrasts. Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks is an ode to Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. Composed just seven years earlier, Ravel’s piano concerto is jazz influenced from beginning to end, while Dallapiccola’s work pays homage to Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik. The exotic program concludes with Falla’s flamenco-filled ballet of gypsies, ghosts, and fire dances.
