Noseda shortlisted for Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards !
Italian Conductor Gianandrea Noseda has been nominated for a Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS) Music Award, one of the classical music industry’s most prestigious accolades.

Noseda has been shortlisted for the RPS Music Award for Conductor, in recognition of his concerts in the UK during 2011. This includes his memorable final performance as Chief Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic in Manchester last April, when he conducted Verdi’s Otello to mark the end of his nine years at the helm of the orchestra, a relationship which has been acknowledged as one of the most successful creative partnerships in the orchestra’s history.

He is now Music Director at Teatro Regio Torino, Chief Guest Conductor with the Israel Phiharmonic and Conductor Laureate with the BBC Philharmonic.

In October 2011, Noseda returned to the UK to conduct the London Symphony Orchestra in two performances of Britten’s War Requiem, both of which received the highest praise from critics, with Paul Driver in the Sunday Times describing the concert as “magnificent”.

Noseda’s debut with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment at the Royal Festival Hall followed, when he brought his radical interpretation of Beethoven’s music to bear on the choral masterpiece Missa Solemnis, with the massed forces of the Philharmonia Chorus.

The annual RPS Music Awards, presented in association with BBC Radio 3, are the highest recognition for live classical music in the UK. Awards are decided by independent panels consisting of some of the music industry’s most distinguished practitioners. Recent winners have included Ivan Fischer, Valery Gergiev and Vladimir Jurowski.
The 2012 winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 8 May. BBC Radio 3 will broadcast a special RPS Music Awards Performance on 3 on 13 May at 2pm
