Ch’io mi scordi di te?



Piano Concerto No. 25



Symphony No. 4



  • Gianandrea Noseda


    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 2023–24 season marks his seventh as music director of the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO). Noseda’s leadership has inspired and reinvigorated the NSO, which makes its home at the Kennedy Center. The renewed artistic recognition and acclaim have led to invitations to Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York City, international concert halls, as well as digital streaming and the launch of a record label distributed by LSO Live, for which Noseda records as principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra. The label’s recent releases include George Walker’s complete Sinfonias and the NSO’s first-ever recorded Beethoven cycle. Noseda has released more than 80 recordings that cover a vast range of repertoire for various labels, including Deutsche Grammophon and Chandos, for which he created the Musica Italiana series dedicated to neglected Italian composers.

    In his third season as general music director of the Zurich Opera House, Noseda will reach an important artistic milestone in May 2024 with his first two complete Wagner Ring cycles. Since April 2022, critics have praised his performances of the Ring operas. From 2007 to 2018 Noseda served as music director of the Teatro Regio Torino, where his leadership marked the opera house’s golden era.  

    Noseda has appeared as guest conductor at the most important international orchestras, opera houses, and festivals; he has held significant roles at the BBC Philharmonic (as chief conductor), Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (principal guest conductor), Mariinsky Theatre (principal guest conductor), Orchestra sinfonica nazionale della RAI (principal guest conductor), Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (Victor de Sabata Chair), Rotterdam Philharmonic (principal guest conductor), and Stresa Festival (artistic director).

    Noseda has a strong commitment to working with the next generation of musicians. In 2019 he became the founding music director of the Tsinandali Festival and Pan-Caucasian Youth Orchestra in the village of Tsinandali, Georgia.

    A native of Milan, Gianandrea Noseda is Commendatore al Merito della Repubblica Italiana, marking his contribution to the artistic life of Italy. He has been named Musical America’s Conductor of the Year (2015), International Opera Awards Conductor of the Year (2016), and OPER! AWARDS Best Conductor (2023), and he received the Puccini Award (2023).

  • Golda Schultz


    A graduate of The Juilliard School and Bayerische Staatsoper’s Opernstudio, South-African soprano Golda Schultz is as at home in leading operatic roles as she is on the concert stages of the world. Her opera roles have included Ann Truelove in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress and Pamina in Mozart’s The Magic Flute at The Metropolitan Opera; Madame Lidoine in Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites at Glyndebourne Festival Opera; Liù in Puccini’s Turandot at the Vienna Staatsoper; and Micäela in Bizet’s Carmen at Opéra national de Paris. Key concert performances have included her New York Philharmonic debut, singing in Strauss’s Brentano Lieder, as well as Haydn’s The Seasons with The Cleveland Orchestra, Strauss’s Four Last Songs with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Sibelius’s Luonnotar with the San Francisco Symphony. She was the soloist at the 2020 Last Night of the BBC Proms, in a specially curated program, with Dalia Stasevska and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, which was broadcast live on radio and television to a global audience of millions.

  • Francesco Piemontesi


    Swiss-Italian pianist Francesco Piemontesi, a native of Locarno, has gained a reputation as one of the leading interpreters of works by German Classical and Romantic composers. His wider repertoire ranges from J.S. Bach and Debussy to Messiaen and Unsuk Chin. He is a regular guest at many of the world’s leading orchestras, in concert halls and music festivals around the globe, while still being firmly anchored on the shores of Lago Maggiore as artistic director of the music festival Settimane Musicali di Ascona.
