Robert Treviño, chief conductor

Talent and emotion at their purest.,,

“Music is humankind’s greatest achievement. Through music we come closer to one another and transmit the truest, most honest and most divine parts that inhabit our souls. We artists must transmit value to those who seek to elevate all humankind. The Basque National Orchestra and myself strive to promote empathy, love, passion and strength among our audience and the world.”

Robert Treviño rapidly emerged as one of today’s most exciting American conductors, one of the talents in most demand among the new generation. He is immensely proud to have become the chief conductor of the Basque National Orchestra.

Treviño burst into the international spotlight with unprecedented success at the Bolshoi Theatre (December 2013) leading a new production of Verdi’s “Don Carlo”. He was later nominated for the Golden Mask Award and a music critic said about him “there has not been an American success of this magnitude in Moscow since Van Cliburn.”

He soon caught the eye of David Zinman, with whom he studied as a Conducting Fellow at the Aspen Music School and Festival, and where he was awarded the James Conlon Prize. Immediately afterwards, in 2011, James Levine invited Treviño to be the Seiji Ozawa Conducting Fellow at the Tanglewood Music Festival. He was invited by Michael Tilson Thomas and to assist Leif Segerstam with the Helsinki Philharmonic. He served as Associate Conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (2011-2015) and, previously, as Associate Conductor of the New York City Opera at the Lincoln Center (2009-2011). Recent seasons have seen Treviño debut with orchestras including the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Dresden Philharmonic, NHK Symphony, Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Accademia Nazionale Di Santa Cecilia, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Orchestre Nationale de France, St Petersburg Philharmonic and many others. Immediate reinvitations have frequently followed his debuts. The Orchestra Philharmonique de Monte Carlo even invited him to extensively tour Europe and Asia, including opening of the new Opera di Firenze auditorium at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. His performances are broadcast by channels such as ARTE. Coming seasons will bring him to the Cleveland Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, HR Sinfonieorchester, Tonkuenstler Vienna, MDR Leipzig, Maggio Musicale Florentino, Helsinki Philharmonic, Bournemouth and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestras. And to opera productions at the Washington National Opera
