Carnegie Hall

The composer, pianist and drummer Yoshiki (@YoshikiOfficial) is the founder of X Japan, one of Japan’s biggest rock groups.

But he also has a longtime love of classical music: he started playing piano when he was 4 years old, and has released several classical albums produced by the late George Martin.

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra At Carnegie Hall

Apr 24, 2014
