It also made the Top 10 in the USA (#2), Norway (#2), Australia (#6), France (#4).
Yoshiki Classical, out yesterday September 24th, sees one of Asia's most influential musical artists collaborating with legendary Beatles producer Sir George Martin, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra and the Quartet San Francisco.
Billboard Magazine raves Yoshiki Classical is "a collection of beautiful pieces of music with sweet melodies, soaring voices and vibrant strings."
A stunning symphonic collection, Yoshiki's classical music is in the same vein as fellow pianists Jon Lord, Keith Emerson and Rod Argent, as well as Paul McCartney, Ian Anderson and other rock stars who are classically trained and have continued writing classical music throughout their rock careers.
With Yoshiki Classical, Yoshiki is bringing and illuminating the beauty of classical music to rock and pop audiences around the world.
