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

A varied program with the full S.F. Symphony conducted by Osmo Vanska, conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra. The first piece, Slonimsky's Earbox, by John Adams, was truly a thrill for the ears and mind. Wonderfully energetic and melodic, yet still with Adams' repetitive refrains.It was really good to hear The Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 played LIVE, since one usually hears recordings of this composition. Since I sat in the Second tier, the players seemed rather far away, but the music soars up to that elevation so beautifully. A very good evening at a very fair price.
