Jörgen van Rijen & Alma Quartet

7:00pm – 9:00pm
¥5,000 (advance sales)

Professional artists from the renowned Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra are coming to Japan. Join them as they wow audiences with a refreshing take on the classics.

Jörgen van Rijen — principal trombonist in the Royal Concertgebouw — heads the group while the Alma Quartet accompanies him as the string quartet.

What to expect

This ensemble is one of a kind. The combination of instruments is unconventional — it’s not too often you see the trombone star — and the use of electronics in classical music elevates the sound to a new level. You won’t see this type of performance anywhere else. Hear a sample below.


Entry is ¥5,000 for adults or ¥1,000 for under 18s. You can buy your tickets here. The ensemble is also playing in Aichi on July 17.

How to get there

The performance will take place at the Kyoto Concert Hall in the Ensemble Hall Murata. It’s a 4-minute walk from Kitayama Station, which can be reached in 15 minutes via the Karasuma Line from Kyoto Station.
