BARCELONA SYMPHONY AND CATALONIA NATIONAL ORCHESTRA

The Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya (Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Catalonia) was founded in 1944 by Eduard Toldrà. Rafael Ferrer took over from the latter in 1962 until 1967. Music directors of the orchestra have also included Antoni Ros Marbà (1967–1978, 1981–1986), Salvador Mas (1978–1981), Franz-Paul Decker (1986–1991), García Navarro (1991–1993), Lawrence Foster (1996–2002), Ernest Martinez Izquierdo (2002–2006) and Eiji Oue (2006–2010) and from 2010 Pablo González. Emmanuel Krivine is the current principal guest conductor. Kazushi Ono took over as music director from September 2015. Throughout its over seventy years of history, the OBC has recorded several albums for the Decca, EMI, Auvidis, Koch, Claves, Naxos, Telarc and BIS labels, among others. The OBC has established an ongoing collaboration with Naxos for which it has recently recorded music by Meyerbeer, Montsalvatge, Massenet and Granados. Touring is an important part of the activities of the orchestra, with appearances at some of the world’s major concert halls. The OBC is part of the Consorci de l’Auditori i l’Orquestra, formed by the Catalan government and the city of Barcelona.
