Nowadays the Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra is regarded as one of Spain’s best orchestras, collaborating regularly with internationally renowned soloists and conductors and frequently invited to perform in celebrated national and international venues and festivals. In 2007-08, the Orchestra visited Bilbao, Warsaw, Dortmund, and Paris. During the past two seasons, the OSN has been invited three times to the prestigious Theatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, accompanying soloists such as Daniella Barcelona, Juan Diego Flórez and Roberto Alagna. The OSN returned to Paris for the new production of Cyrano de Bergerac, featuring Plácido Domingo in the title role, at the Theatre du Châtelet in Paris where they also performed a critically lauded symphonic concert. In its role as cultural ambassador of Navarra, the orchestra also toured China recently, performing the music of its founder, Pablo Sarasate, in 7 concerts across 5 cities.
The Orchestra is also one of the most popular in Spain, selling more than 2,700 season tickets annually in Pamplona. It is the resident orchestra of the Gayarre singing competition and the Sarasate violin competition and collaborates frequently in opera and zarzuela performances in Pamplona, Spain and abroad.
The Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra has also undertaken a remarkable educational role, with concerts at schools and a series of popular concerts including soundtracks, live music to accompany silent films and collaborations with internationally renowned jazz stars.
Its recordings include the CD Heroínas españolas (Spanish Heroines) with mezzo-soprano Silvia Tro Santafé, the CD-book El violín de Sarasate and a new complete recording of Sarasate’s works for Naxos.
The Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra receives financial support from the Government of Navarra and the City of Pamplona, and it is sponsored by private companies such as NH Hoteles, Diario de Navarra, Caja Navarra and Gas Natural Navarra.
