Gianandrea Noseda is among the most sought-after conductors of our time. Since becoming Music Director of the Teatro Regio Torino in 2007 he has propelled it into the ranks of leading opera houses. Gianandrea Noseda regularly conducts many of the leading international orchestras and is also Chief Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic, Victor De Sabata Guest Conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony and Laureate Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic. He served as the first foreign principal guest conductor of the Mariinsky Theatre from 1997 – 2007.
The 2011 – 2012 season was a seminal one for Gianandrea Noseda and included celebrated performances of Britten’s War Requiem with the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in London and New York. The New York Times selected the performance at Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival as one of the top ten performances of 2011 while Alex Ross of The New Yorker wrote, “Noseda marshalled the finest War Requiem I have heard.” LSO Live subsequently released a recording in 2012 to mark the 50th anniversary of the War Requiem’s premiere. In June 2012 he made his highly anticipated debut at the Teatro alla Scala with a new production of Luisa Miller recognized as a triumph by the critics and public alike. He continued his passionate work with young artists by leading a multi-city tour of the European Union Youth Orchestra in August 2012 with performances at the Stresa Festival in Italy, of which he is Artistic Director, and the Edinburgh International Festival, which marked his debut there.
In addition to conducting numerous productions in Torino each season, Gianandrea Noseda’s work with the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Regio Torino includes major recording projects and international tours and residencies he instituted in Asia (Japan and China) and Europe, including an annual concert performance of an opera at Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris. In May 2013 he will bring his forces to Vienna for the first time with the Verdi Requiem at the Wiener Konzerthaus. Two of the new productions he led at the Teatro Regio Torino have been released on DVD: Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov directed by Andrei Konchalovsky (Opus Arte DVD) and Massenet’s Thaïs directed by Stefano Poda (Arthaus DVD) which was recently recognized as one of the top twenty opera productions of the last twenty years by BBC Music Magazine. He also conducts his orchestra and chorus in two highly anticipated solo aria recording projects for Deutsche Grammophon celebrating Verdi’s 200th birthday featuring Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon.
The 2012 – 2013 season got off to a busy start with Gianandrea Noseda’s debut at Vienna State Opera in September. This season will include return guest conducting appearances with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony and debuts with the Cleveland Orchestra and Los Angeles Philharmonic. His relationship with the LSO will continue in summer 2013 when he makes his debut at the Aix-en-Provence Festival in a new production of Rigoletto by Robert Carsen.
Gianandrea Noseda’s privileged relationship with the Metropolitan Opera dates back to 2002. He has conducted five Verdi operas and garnered considerable attention most recently with last season’s revival of Macbeth. He will return to the Met with two new productions in the 2013 – 2014 season.
An exclusive Chandos artist since 2002, Gianandrea Noseda’s discography includes over 35 recordings featuring among others Prokofiev, Karlowitz, Dvorak, Smetana, Shostakovich, Liszt’s Symphonic works, Rachmaninoff (the operas and the symphonies), Mahler and Bartok. He has recently started to champion both known and lesser-known Italian composers of the 20th century.
Gianandrea Noseda’s intense collaboration with the BBC Philharmonic continues with studio recordings, subscription concerts at the Bridgewater Hall and annual appearances at the Proms in London. His Live performances of Beethoven’s complete symphonies from Manchester with the BBC Philharmonic in 2005 is considered a historic classical music streaming event with over 1.4 million downloads as part of BBC Radio 3’s The Beethoven Experience.
Born in Milan, Gianandrea Noseda is one of the highest profile Italian cultural figures and has taken it upon himself to speak publicly about the need to continue investing in culture during difficult economic conditions. He is regularly interviewed on this topic and in March 2012 he was interviewed about it on CNBC’s Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo at the New York Stock Exchange.
He holds the Honor of “Cavaliere Ufficiale al Merito della Repubblica Italiana”.
