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

Alondra de la Parra is an excellent conductor. I've never seen a conductor having so much fun directing a magnificent orchestra such as The San Francisco Symphony.
I enjoyed very much the pieces selected for this concert. Certainly enjoyed the narration by the gorgeous Chris Noth. Delightful.

Summer & the Symphony’s Grand Finale promises to be the summer’s can’t-miss musical event! Chris Noth—known for his role on HBO’s Sex and the City as Mr. Big and currently appearing on CBS’s The Good Wife—will narrate Copland’s Lincoln Portrait, an undisputed American masterpiece. The spectacular finale also includes the UC Berkeley Marching Band in a performance of the hit Broadway tune “Seventy-Six Trombones.”
Arrive one hour prior to the concert for music and dancing with the Martini Brothers, plus desserts and specialty drinks.
