Event Info

Gianandrea Noseda leads a concert of all things Italian. In his most popular piece, piano wizard Rachmaninoff takes a theme by the Italian violin wizard Paganini and creates a rhapsody with knuckle-busting runs and swoon-worthy melodies. Berlioz conjures Rome’s colorful pre-Lenten revelry, and Respighi summons images of Rome-bound pilgrims and the gory Circus Maximus, where man met beast.

Conductor

Gianandrea Noseda is one of the world’s most sought-after conductors, recognized equally for his artistry in the concert hall and opera house. He was named the seventh music director of the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) in January 2016, beginning his four-year term in the 2017–18 season. In September 2018, his contract was extended through the 2024–25 season.

In May 2019, Mr. Noseda and the NSO earned rave reviews at their first concert together at Carnegie Hall. The 2019–20 season their partnership continues to flourish in 12 weeks of concerts at the Kennedy Center, which include performances and live recordings of Beethoven’s nine symphonies over two-and-one-half weeks, and their first overseas tour together, to Japan and China, in March 2020. They returned to New York in November 2019 for their first appearance together at Lincoln Center with a concert performance of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde featuring an all-star cast.

Mr. Noseda also serves as principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, principal conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués, and artistic director of the Stresa Festival in Italy. In the 2021–22 season, he will become general music director of the Zurich Opera House, where he will lead his first Ring Cycle. From 2007 to 2018, he served as music director of the Teatro Regio Torino, where his leadership and his initiatives propelled the company’s global reputation. 

During the 2019–20 season, Mr. Noseda will guest conduct the Bavarian Radio, Danish National, and Vienna symphony orchestras, and Milan’s Filarmonica della Scala, Orchestre national de France, Orchestra dell’accademia nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Philharmonia Zurich, Rotterdam Philharmonic, and Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra.

Mr. Noseda has an extensive discography of over 60 recordings for Chandos and Deutsche Grammophon, among others. He is closely involved with the next generation of musicians through his work as music director of the Tsinandali Festival and Pan-Caucasian Youth Orchestra, which just concluded its inaugural season, as well as with other youth orchestras, including the European Union Youth Orchestra.

A native of Milan, Gianandrea Noseda is Commendatore al Merito della Repubblica Italiana, marking his contribution to the artistic life of Italy. He was named Musical America’s Conductor of the Year (in 2015) and International Opera Awards Conductor of the Year (2016).

He has given recitals in many prestigious venues, including Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Berlin’s Philharmonie, Zürich’s Tonhalle, Vienna’s Konzerthaus and Musikverein, New York’s Carnegie Hall and David Geffen Hall, and Tokyo’s Suntory Hall.
