NHK Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo


No.1897 Subscription (Program C)

Born in Milan in 1964, Gianandrea Noseda studied conducting in his hometown. In 1994, he won the Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition. A key moment in his career came in 1997, when he was named Principal Conductor of the Cadaqués Orchestra, a position he has held to date. He also served as Principal Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic from 2002 to 2011, and he has held the positions of Chief Guest Conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, to name a few. From the 2017/18 season, he assumed the position of Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra based in Washington, D.C. He has contributed greatly to giving Italian works of the 20th Century more public exposure, including those by Respighi and Casella and orchestral works by Liszt and Rakhmaninov. Another key moment in his career in 1997 was in the world of opera, where he was named Principal Guest Conductor of the prestigious Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. Since then, he has been energetically conducting mainly Italian, French and Russian works on the international stage, and in 2007, he assumed the position of Music Director of the Teatro Regio di Torino. He made his debut with the Metropolitan Opera in 2002 and at the Salzburger Festspiel in 2015 by conducting an operatic work. He has worked with the NHK Symphony Orchestra many times since his first appearance in 2005.
