Five scores for a trip round the world

The Basque National Orchestra presents the Mundubira Musika Bidelagun Project, its way of commemorating the 500th anniversary of the first trip round the world—a trip in which the Basque national, Juan Sebastián Elkano, played a crucial role.

Five works have been commissioned to five Basque composers, who have been tasked with putting music to the different stretches of the journey and, together, their compositions will reflect the voyage as a whole.

This is a project that bears the seal and the efforts of Robert Treviño, aims to support Basque culture and music, and is the result of months of work.
