The Basque National Orchestra presents its 20/21 Season

This season, the orchestra will place emphasis on the Romantic era. This will be clearly seen through the inclusion of all of Schubert's symphonies (as a Schubert marathon), as well as through the role of Schumann. Also important this season will be Wagner, who represents a break away from Romanticism. They will take us to other great composers like Mahler and Rachmaninoff.

This will be Robert Trevino's fourth season as main conductor. He will continue with his long-term musical vision and working on improving the orchestra artistically. He will conduct five concert programmes and take the orchestra on tour once again – this time through Italy (Udine, Bergamo, Brescia) and to Zagreb in April of 2021.

It is the first orchestra in Spain – and one of the few in Europe – to return to the stage, and it will do so under the baton of its chief conductor, Robert Trevino.

The Basque National Orchestra shines at its début in Istanbul

The concert offered yesterday in Istanbul by the Orchestra was a success not only because of the audience's enthusiastic reception, but also because the Orchestra's musicians delivered a solid performance in the face of several setbacks. Due to a long delay in receiving their instruments, the musicians had to perform the first part of the programme with loaned instruments, only using their own for the second part.
