Robert Treviño


"Treviño forms one symphonic organism that, with its delicate lines, its piercing nine-note chord blocks, venomous scherzos and waltzing dances of death, turns the whole span into the turning of a musical wheel of fortune… Very enthusiastic applause."
(Leipziger Volkszeitung, on Robert Treviño with the CBSO at the Mahler Festival Leipzig, 2023)
Robert Treviño has rapidly emerged as one of the most exciting American conductors of the younger generation performing today. He serves as the Music Director of the Basque National Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI.
The 2023/24 season will see Robert Treviño lead the Basque National Orchestra to Salzburg, make his Zurich Opera debut, his La Fenice opera debut, and there will be welcome returns to regular collaborators including Dresdner Philharmonie, Sinfonieorchester Basel, SWR Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart, NDR Hannover, Gürzenich Orchester Köln and Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse.
Other orchestras Robert Treviño has conducted include the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, CBSO, Münchner Philharmoniker, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, MDR-Sinfonieorchester Leipzig, Bamberger Symphoniker, Wiener Symphoniker, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Orchestre de Paris, Filarmonica della Scala and Helsinki Philharmonic. He has also conducted a wide variety of orchestras in North America – among them the major orchestras of Cleveland, Baltimore and San Francisco – as well as the São Paulo Symphony and the Osaka Philharmonic. He has led orchestras at many leading festivals, among them Mahler Festival Leipzig, Milan Mahler Festival and Puccini Festival.
His recording contract with Ondine has resulted in a widely-praised complete Beethoven symphonies cycle, two much-acclaimed Ravel albums, a Rautavaara album and “Americascapes” – a hugely-admired survey of little-known American masterpieces, that won ‘Best Recording of 2021’ from Presto Music and was shortlisted for a Gramophone Award. A cycle of Bruch symphonies with the Bamberger Symphoniker was released by CPO, to universally positive reviews. Lately, in 2023 his new recording “Respighi – Roman Trilogy” with Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI was released to excellent reviews.
