Maurice Ravel is a universal composer whose works are performed across the world. Born in Ziburu in the French Basque Country, the Basque National Orchestra is showcasing his Basque origins. Robert Trevino has conducted centrepiece performances of Ravel in several season concerts and in the orchestra’s debut at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris. Since the early days of his conductorship, Trevino has been keen to explore Ravel's Basque identity in depth and to share with the world what this orchestra knows and understands about the composer’s language.

This is the first time that Trevino has recorded Ravel but not so for the Basque National Orchestra. Its discography includes another album of Ravel recorded in 2000 with its then conductor Gilbert Varga and the pianist Joaquín Achúcarro from Bilbao. The record included Ravel's two piano concertos performed by Achúcarro along with Alborada del gracioso, which also features on the latest album together with La ValseBoléroRapsodie espagnolePavane pour une infante défunte and Une barque sur l´océan
