Robert Treviño extends his time at the forefront of the Basque National Orchestra to five seasons

In the coming days, and having completed the last programme of concerts in the 2017/2018 Season with the direction of Verdi’s Requiem, Robert Treviño will have finished the first of the three seasons initially agreed to as Chief Conductor of the Basque National Orchestra.

After this time, and having observed the rise in quality and artistic results obtained as the Orchestra conductor, Robert Treviño’s contract has been extended for another two years. His presence as artistic head of the Orchestra will therefore encompass a musical period of five seasons, until 2021/2022.

As the leading artistic figure with the Basque National Orchestra, Robert Treviño has demonstrated his commitment to the Orchestra, to culture and to the country. This 2017/2018 Season has seen him front six concert programmes (26 concerts). But he has similarly contributed to education with our Music Room Concerts for Schoolchildren, also becoming involved in Musikene and the Master’s Degree in Orchestral Studies, with exclusive dedication to his students to help them improve and complete their training. 

In his interest and commitment to Basque music he is also the first chief conductor of the Orchestra to participate in Musikaste, tackling for its closing event a programme completely focussed on Basque composers.

As well as his commitment and presence in the Basque Country, Robert Treviño has set new landmarks in the international sphere, having obtained in recent months great praise at the head of orchestras like the London Symphony, the London Philharmonic and the Zurich Tonhalle. Now he takes yet another step forward, preparing the tour of his orchestra, with which he is enormously proud to perform in Central European concert halls of enormous musical tradition and exacting audiences: the Herkulessaal in Munich, Brucknerhaus in Linz and the Festspielhaus in Bregenz.
