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 enjoyed this performance. Our seats were not as good as the ones we previously have received as they were off to the side and we could not see about 1/3 of the orchestra. In the past, our second tier seats were in the center higher up. Still, the sound was excellent and we enjoyed the concert very much.
Quotes & Highlights
“Higdon’s ‘blue cathedral’ made us marvel at the process of creation. It is intriguing and serene, evoking the pastorale naivete of Copland and the crystalline harmonies of Ravel, while sounding utterly of our time.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“Mr. Anderszewski’s improbably light playing had an air of confessional intimacy; listening felt like eavesdropping.” —The New York Times

The award-winning Anderszewski has appeared with many great orchestras and debuts with the San Francisco Symphony in Mozart’s darkly beautiful concerto. Fauré and Debussy created musical Impressionism, and Higdon shows how Impressionism lives today.
