Bilbao Sinfonietta, in the wake of other great formations of similar characteristics, aims to adapt the great symphonic repertoire to its own needs, just as great masters like A. Schönberg did with the works of their predecessors, from A. Bruckner to G. Mahler. For this they have a resident composer, Francisco Domínguez.
