NEW YORK (AP) — Entering his prime at age 55, conductor Gianandrea Noseda is lifting the reputation of the Washington's National Symphony Orchestra, where he is in his third season as music director.
He also is principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and will become general music director of the Zurich Opera in the 2021-22 season.
The NSO says Noseda has helped increase subscriptions and ticket sales, bucking industry downward trends.
Soprano Christine Goerke, singing for Noseda’s concert performances of Wagner’s “Tristan und Isolde” this week, says “he doesn't just use his hands and his arms. He conducts with his entire body.”
