~The prestigious Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the birth of a new brass quintet~

The Concertgebouw Orchestra was founded in 1888 and was awarded the title of "royal" by the Queen in 1988, the 100th anniversary of its foundation. Since its founding, it has been closely involved with contemporary composers, with R. Strauss, Mahler, Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, and Hindemith conducting their own works, and Bartok, Rachmaninoff, and Prokofiev performing as soloists of their own works. We have been leading the times. The recording is huge, reaching over 1,000 points. "Velvet strings", "woodwinds with a typical Dutch tone", and above all, the brass section boasts a gorgeous sound called "golden brass". At the performance in Japan led by the charismatic conductor Jansons, the venue was filled with excitement and thunderous applause. Its overwhelming performance is now known as one of the world's top orchestras both in name and reality.

This time, five principal players of the brass section responsible for the gorgeous sound of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra will form a quintet for the first time and tour Japan for the first time. Like the orchestra, the quintet of the century is sure to grab attention.
