Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post wrote of this performance: “Noseda kept everything moving, focusing on the varieties of expression rather than the theme’s reiteration, so that I lost myself in the sound of the orchestra and actually shivered when the once-sweet theme was converted into the reedy cackling of witches in the final movement.” This production of Hector Berlioz’s most famous work is Maestro Noseda’s first recording for Helicon Classics. Gianandrea Noseda is widely recognized as one of the leading conductors of his generation. He was named the National Symphony Orchestra’s seventh music director in January 2016 and began his four-year term last September with the 2017–18 season opening night gala celebrating Bernstein’s Centennial. Noseda Read more also serves as Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Principal Conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués, and Artistic Director of the Stresa Festival in Italy. From 2007 until 2018 Noseda served as Music Director of the Teatro Regio Torino where he ushered in a transformative era for the company matched with international acclaim for its productions, tours, recordings, and film projects.
