Gianandrea Noseda is one of the world’s most sought-after conductors, equally recognized for his artistry in both the concert hall and opera house. The 2022 – 2023 season marks his sixth as Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra. In June 2022, his contract was extended through the 2026/27 season.
Noseda’s artistic leadership has inspired the National Symphony Orchestra and reinvigorated it both in at home at the Kennedy Center and beyond via streams, recordings and on tour to New York where in 2019 it earned rave reviews both Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. The artistic partnership between Noseda and the NSO continues to flourish with the NSO recording label distributed by LSO Live for which Noseda also records as principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra. The first recording on the label was released in 2020 featuring Dvořák’s Symphony No 9 and Copland’s Billy the Kid. The label’s next releases over the course of 2022 and 2023 will include D.C. native George Walker’s Five Sinfonias and a Beethoven Cycle.
In September 2021, Noseda began his tenure as General Music Director of the Zurich Opera House where the centerpiece of his tenure in Zurich is a new Ring Cycle. His initial contract was through the 2024/25 season. In October 2022, his contract was extended through the 2027/28 season.
