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

I went to 4 performances this weekend, all different in genres, but can I get an amen from anyone who saw/heard this performance? I have to admit I am a classical singer and love Schubert and have worked on this song cycle. They did such an amazing job. My husband and I had tears in our eyes at the end and they got 4 standing ovations. This was true artistry of the highest form and I was engaged from the first note until the last. Lieder is feeling like a lost art from in this country. It is incredibly challenging for the pianist/singer to engage an audience for an evening of song. Each song is like a mini-opera, telling a full tale in a few moments and telling several in an evening. I applaud the SF symphony for bringing this here. It's hard to get an large audience for this type of work, but it shouldn't be and I hope lieder won't become a lost art.
