Starting today and for several weeks, we intend to present a series of posts that introduce the conductors who have recorded on the Tritó label. Our intention is to highlight the figure of these conductors, presenting a short biography and showing you the CDs available on our shop.
The first in this list is Gianandrea Noseda (Milan, 1964). He studied piano, composition and conducting in his hometown, and broadened his conducting studies under Donato Renzetti, Myung-Whun Chung and Valery Gergiev.
Gergiev invited him to be principal guest conductor at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1997. In 1994 he won the Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition, and was later appointed Chief Conductor of the Cadaqués Orchestra, Principal Guest Conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Artistic Director of the Settimana Musicali di Stresa e del Lago Maggiore Festival in Italy. In 2007, Noseda became Music Director of the Teatro Regio di Torino.
In December 2001, he was appointed Principal Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic and took up the post in September 2002, renewing his contract in 2003. In 2005 he appeared on BBC radio in several projects, conducting Beethoven’s nine symphonies in Manchester. In October 2006, Noseda extended his contract for another two years and become Chief Conductor. It is expected that the 2010-2011 season will be his last at the helm of the BBC Philharmonic and that he will be named honorary director of the orchestra.

Noseda conducts both symphonic and opera works. He has made several recordings with the BBC Philharmonic on the Chandos label, and nine CDs on the Tritó label while leading the Cadaqués Orchestra.
