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 few weeks ago I sang the praises of Julia Fischer's Brahms Viloin Concerto on Pentatone (not to mention the Double Concerto on the same disc). At the time I did not realize that I would have the coveted opportunity to see Fischer in person. Well, this evening I did just that at Davies Hall San Francisco. She played as part of two Schubert compositions, the Sonata in A minor and the marquee Quintet in A major, "Trout". The Schumann "Fantasiestucke for Clarinet and Piano" was the first performance).
The Sonata, was certainly "pleasant" enough, but who are we fooling? It was the "Trout" that the largely sold out crowd came to see and hear. And Fischer and her quintet partners responded in a most scintillating way. I'm not learned in chamber music enough to "rate" the performance, so I will defer to the audience which responded with a standing applause that while not unbounded, was enthusiastic, unusually sustained and relentless in demand for at least 4 return bows by the performers.
Can anyone recommend an outstanding "Trout" on SACD?
P.S. During intermission, on a whim, I purchased Gordon Getty's "Young America", a San Francisco Symphony and Chorus Pentatone SACD that I did not know existed.

Yefim Bronfman and Julia Fischer are two of today’s top instrumentalists. Their passion and virtuosity ignite any music they approach, and when they join their SFS colleagues in an evening of chamber music—including Schubert’s Trout Quintet—the results are bound to be incendiary.
