The Basque National Orchestra (BNO) is one of the leading symphonic ensembles in Spain. Followed by 7,000 subscribers, the BNO’s activities receive 150,000 spectators a year. With 36 years of experience, the BNO continues to develop and strengthen its symphonic repertoire with an emphasis on Basque music. Thanks to its established, well-structured schedule, the BNO performs symphonic repertoire at four venues (Vitoria, Bilbao, San Sebastián and Pamplona), organises another two cycles of chamber music and music for children, and maintains an intense recording policy based on the orchestral works of Basque composers. It also participates as a guest orchestra at summer festivals, operas and extraordinary concerts across the Basque region, and has developed, through workshops and concerts, a growing social network for the integration of people with disabilities.

The BNO collaborates with some of the world’s most outstanding artists and has undertaken 16 international tours, acting as an ambassador of Basque culture. It has performed in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, the UK and Italy. The BNO was created in April 1982, fostered and developed by the Basque Government Department of Culture. Since the 2017–18 concert season, Robert Trevino has been the orchestra’s music director.

The BNO has collaborated with soloists such as Maria João Pires, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Mischa Maisky, António Meneses, Christian Zacharias, Leonidas Kavakos, Radu Lupu, Joaquín Achúcarro, Arcadi Volodos, Alexander Lonquich, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Nicholas Angelich, Heinrich Schiff, Alban Gerhardt, Vadim Repin, Viviane Hagner, Jennifer Koh, Zoe Nicolaidou, Ainhoa Arteta, María Bayo, Carlos Álvarez and Carlos Mena.
