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

This event is good if youi have kids. They spend a good amount of time explaining the music you are about to hear, and, this day, Bernsteins daughter was there priving wonderful anecdotes and insight into her father's musical style.
It was great.
Running time was also kid-freindly. I brought my 5 and 7 year old and they were fixed to their seat most the perfromance, and we were in teh 2nd Tier.
Tickets were good for the price, but I did wish we had been clioser - but again, it was a good deal so no complaints.
If you want to hear a lot of music and let it take you away, do not attend this as, again, there is a good amount of talking and explaining.
