The Basque National Orchestra will present their 2020/2021 Season's concerts on ETB and their YouTube channel starting this Saturday

ETB2 will broadcast the performances every Saturday at 11:00 starting 28 November through July 2021.

As performances are broadcast on television, the Basque National Orchestra will make the pieces performed in these concerts available to the public on their YouTube channel.

As a way of overcoming the current difficulty of reaching in-person audiences, the Basque National Orchestra is once again joining forces with EiTB, this time to record and broadcast this Season’s concerts. Starting this Saturday, 28 November at 11:00, and on the following Saturdays through July 2021, ETB2 will broadcast all of the concerts that the Basque National Orchestra will present this Season at Euskalduna Bilbao.

This new series of broadcasts will add to the list of those that the Basque National Orchestra and EiTB already presented between May and July of this year under the title ‘Euskadiko Orkestra Martxan!’. This initiative constituted the Basque National Orchestra’s return to the stage after the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown (it was the first State orchestra, and one of the few in Europe to regroup and return to the stage). On that occasion, a reduced orchestra format was considered (maximum of 50 musicians), which met behind closed doors to create a mini-season of 8 concerts, first broadcast on ETB2 and later on the orchestra’s YouTube channel, where they received more than 10,000 views.

Now the Season’s own concerts are able to be presented in most auditoriums with a reduced audience due to current restrictions, while they will be recorded for broadcast on ETB2 and YouTube.

 

Calendar of ETB2 broadcasts

Thirteen concerts are planned for broadcast, all of which recorded at Euskalduna Bilbao. ETB2 will broadcast the performances every Saturday at 11:00 starting 28 November through July 2021, with the sole exception of the Christmas Concert, which will air on Friday, 25 December:

Pieces available on YouTube

As the television performances are broadcast, the Basque National Orchestra will upload the concerts piece by piece to their YouTube channel.

Since the beginning of the lockdown in March, the orchestra has made great strides in producing and distributing quality audiovisual content in the digital space, and now has some 7,000 subscribers to its YouTube channel. This Season will take another step forward with the vast majority of its pieces performed being uploaded.
