YOSHIKI — songwriter, drummer/percussionist, classically-trained pianist and the creative force of rock group X JAPAN — has announced a special concert event presented by Knitting Factory, YOSHIKI Classical Special Featuring Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.

The special classical performance will take place on January 12th and 13th next year at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage in New York City. Tickets, priced at $105 / $85 / $75 / $65 / $55 / $40, will be available at 11am (EST) on September 29th at the Carnegie Hall Box Office, 154 West 57th Street, or can be charged to major credit cards by calling Carnegie Charge at 212-247-7800 and visiting the Carnegie Hall website, carnegiehall.org.

“I began taking piano lessons and music theory at age four, and became interested in classical works by Beethoven and Schubert,” explains YOSHIKI. “In elementary school, I played the trumpet in the brass band, and around age ten started composing songs for piano. I’ve been writing classical music ever since. Needless to say, classical music has been a major influence in my musical career, including X JAPAN. I was fortunate enough to play Madison Square Garden two years ago with my band X JAPAN. Now I’m playing Carnegie Hall as a pianist with Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, which was another dream of mine. Words can’t describe how honored I am to be performing at such a prestigious venue with an amazing orchestra.”

For the Carnegie Hall concert, YOSHIKI will perform his original compositions alongside the world-renowned Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra; he will also play several traditional classical pieces. The Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra was named one of the Top 10 greatest orchestras in the world by CNN in 2015. This classical concert will also take place in Japan and Hong Kong.
