NSO (USA) nominee Orchestra of the Year! Gramophone Classical Music Awards 2023

If the orchestra of the USA’s capital has lagged in recognition behind the old-established Big Five of America (Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh) or the newer wave of superb West Coast ensembles like Los Angeles and San Francisco orchestras, things may be changing. Led by Gianandrea Noseda, well known for his work at the BBC Philharmonic and Turin Opera, and as a dynamic guest with the LSO, the National SO of Washington is sounding very fine, the ensemble tighter and more punchy, the winds showing real character. These qualities are well demonstrated by the first releases in a series focusing of the music of the African-American George Walker (1922-2018), undeniably thorny, but music that responds excitingly to the kind of committed advocacy that Noseda and his orchestra bring. But if you want to sample them on more familiar ground, there’s a Beethoven symphony cycle in the offing – and we know how exciting Noseda can be in that music.

Gianandrea Noseda: Best Conductor Oper! Awards 2023

 Statement of the OPER! AWARDS 2023 jury:

"[Zurich Opera House] Intendant and opera director Andreas Homoki had planned for Gianandrea Noseda to conduct his new production of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen at the Zurich Opera. However, Gianandrea Noseda didn't want to at first but then changed his mind. This was a stroke of luck because Noseda inspires audiences and critics alike with his fresh take on the monumental score. Wagner's "patriotic bel canto” is not just a mere assertion, but becomes a light sound and a story that is actually sung. It has long been known that Noseda has mastered the Italian operatic repertoire, as well as having a knack for French and Russian operas. Now he is also showing his best side as a Wagner expert at the Zurich Opera House."
