Conductor

Gianandrea Noseda was named the National Symphony Orchestra’s seventh music director in January 2016, and he began his four-year tenure this fall. He has served as music director of the Teatro Regio Torino since 2007, ushering in a transformative era for the company and garnering international acclaim for its productions, tours, recordings, and film projects. His visionary leadership and ambitious global touring initiatives over the last decade have made the opera house one of the world’s leading opera companies and one of Italy’s most important cultural ambassadors. He also serves as principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, principal conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués, and artistic director of Italy’s Stresa Festival.

Highlights of Mr. Noseda’s 2017–18 season include appearances with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, and London Symphony Orchestra. He has worked with the Berlin Philharmonic; The Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras; NHK and Vienna Symphony Orchestras; Edinburgh International and Salzburg Festivals; Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; and Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Orchestra della Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and the Zurich Opera House. He also continues to work with the BBC Philharmonic, which he led from 2002 to 2011; Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, where he was principal guest conductor; and the Mariinsky Theatre, where he was the first-ever foreign principal guest conductor.

Mr. Noseda’s relationship with The Metropolitan Opera dates back to 2002; in the 2016–17 season he conducted a new production of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, which received its premiere at the New Year’s Eve Gala. In May 2018 he leads the Met Orchestra at Carnegie Hall for the first time.

His acclaimed recording activity includes more than 50 CDs. His Musica Italiana project, which he initiated more than ten years ago, chronicles underappreciated 20th-century Italian repertoire.

A native of Milan, Gianandrea Noseda is Cavaliere Ufficiale al Merito della Repubblica Italiana for his contribution to the artistic life of Italy. He was Musical America’s Conductor of the Year in 2015 and International Opera Awards Conductor of the Year in 2016.
