Robert Rÿker serves as Music Director of the Tokyo Sinfonia. A pioneer and an innovator, he has founded orchestras on three continents – the National Philharmonic of India, the North Bay Symphony in Canada, and the Tokyo Sinfonia. He credits his long association with Zubin Mehta to have been a seminal influence upon his own formation as an orchestra conductor and interpretive musician.

1 thought on “Recording with the Tokyo Sinfonia

  1. The challenge was to see how well our new ZEN STUDIO (portable studio audio interface) could capture the sounds of a prominent Tokyo orchestra in a prestigious venue.
    Your intimate knowledge of our gear + mic-ing experience (using the fabuous AEA Ribbonmics) were the key to us capturing such a great sound.

    Well done !
