Robert Trevino has rapidly emerged as one of the most exciting American conductors performing today, as well as one of the most in-demand talents of the younger generation. He serves as the Music Director of the Basque National Orchestra, Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI and as an Artistic Advisor of the Malmö Symphony Orchestra. This season sees him on tour both with the Basque National Orchestra in Salzburg and with Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI in Frankfurt, Cologne and Hamburg.

In recent seasons Trevino’s European engagements have included the London Symphony Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Gewandhausorchester, Wiener Symphoniker, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Radio-Sinfonieorchester Berlin. He has conducted the Cleveland Orchestra, the symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Toronto and Detroit and led Washington National Opera’s new production of Evgeny Onegin.

Upcoming debut appearances include the Baltimore Symphony, Utah Symphony, Filarmonica della Scala, Orchestra della Svizzera italiana, Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Gürzenich Orchestra Köln and Osaka Philharmonic. Forthcoming return visits include the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, 'La Verdi' Milan, SWR Symphony, MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra and Sinfonia Varsovia.

Having won the „James Conlon Conducting Prize“ at the Aspen Music Festival & School, and subsequently serving as Associate Conductor for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and New York City Opera, Trevino burst into the international spotlight at the Bolshoi Theater in December 2013, leading a new production of Verdi’s Don Carlo at short notice. The Russian press wrote, “There has not been an American success of this magnitude in Moscow since Van Cliburn.” He was subsequently nominated for a Golden Mask award for “Best Conductor in a New Production”.

Most recently, he signed a multi-year recording contract with the classical label Ondine, already resulting in the widely-praised release of a complete Beethoven Symphony Cycle with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and, released in April 2021, a Ravel album with the Basque National Orchestra. The next albums to be released will be a selection of overlooked American masterpieces with the Basque National Orchestra, and works by Einojuhani Rautavaara (including some world premieres) with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra. His cycle of Bruch symphonies with the Bamberg Symphony was released by CPO in August 2020, to universally positive reviews.

Robert Trevino has commissioned, premiered and worked closely with many leading composers, among them John Adams, Philip Glass, Sofia Gubaidulina, Jennifer Higdon, Andre Previn, Augusta Read Thomas, Shulamit Ran and John Zorn.

Trevino […] has clear authority on the podium, the elegance of his beat combined with a clenched fist at moments of intensity […] the imaginative power to conjure up atmosphere in abundance.
