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

Once I eliminate the awful seating I was given and the storm trooper like usher in my section, the rest of the evening was wonderful. Jeremy Denk was a wizard on the piano, watching his fingering from my position almost made up for the terrible seat I was in. MTT, as usual, put together a night of music that transformed. While he doesn't shoot for seamless segues, he managed once again to make very varied pieces blend into a playbook that made perfect sense. I always try to go when MTT is conducting, despite the worst seats in the house they give to Goldstar attendees.
