l" sees collaborations between Yoshiki
and legendary Beatles producer Sir George Martin
, the London Philharmonic Orchestra
, the Tokyo City Philharmonic Symphony
and the Quartet San Francisco
. The end result is a beautiful symphonic collection driven by soaring strings, smart piano pieces and the melodic style of Yoshiki's earlier work. Bringing this magnitude of work to the world stage should be a very entertaining event.
Most of you know Yoshiki
as one of the biggest influences in the 'Visual Kei Movement' with X-Japan
who is a rock band legend but, he is also a genius composer who has created some amazing works including the Golden Globe Theme in the U.S. Now if we could get him to release Violet UK,
all would be perfect in the Jrock world!!
So who is going to grab a ticket? Make sure you let us know all about it!
