Biography

Gianandrea Noseda, 52, is widely recognized as one of the leading conductors of his generation. He was named the National Symphony Orchestra's seventh music director in January 2016, with his tenure beginning as Music Director Designate in the 2016-2017 season, and a four-year term as Music Director in the fall of 2017.

His appointment as Music Director of the Teatro Regio Torino in 2007 ushered in a transformative era for the company matched with international acclaim for itsproductions, tours, recordings, and film projects. His visionary leadership and ambitious global touring initiatives over the last decade have brought the opera house firmly into the realm of the leading international companies on the global stage, where it has become one of Italy's most important cultural ambassadors. Noseda opened its 2016-2017 season this past fall celebrating the 120th anniversary of the premiere of Puccini's La bohème, which took place at the Teatro Regio Torino in 1896. 

Noseda also serves as Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Principal Conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués, and Artistic Director of the Stresa Festival located on the shores of Lago Maggiore and among the oldest musical festivals in Italy. He was Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI from 2003 to 2006. He is a regular guest of the Cleveland Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala, NHK Symphony, Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Wiener Symphoniker. Noseda also continues to work with institutions where he has held posts, including the BBC Philharmonic, which he led from 2002-2011; the Pittsburgh Symphony, where the Victor de Sabata Chair was created for him; and the Mariinsky Theatre, which appointed him its first-ever foreign principal guest conductor in 1997, a position he held for a decade.

Notable recent engagements include his Munich Philharmonic debut in June 2016 and Royal Opera House debut with a new production of Il trovatore in July 2016. In May 2015, he made his Berlin Philharmonic debut followed by his Salzburg Festival debut leading performances of Il trovatore with the Vienna Philharmonic in the summer of 2015. On December 8, 2016 he conducted the Nobel Prize Concert in Stockholm.

His widely praised 2013-2014 season interpretation of Prince Igor, for which he and director Dmitri Tcherniakov fashioned a new version, is available on DVD from Deutsche Grammophon.

Noseda's intense recording activity counts more than 50 CDs, many of which have been celebrated by critics and received awards.

Conducting the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino he has also recorded opera albums with celebrated vocalists such as Ildebrando d'Arcangelo, Rolando Villazon, Anna Netrebko, and Diana Damrau.
