Gianandrea Noseda has conducted at the leading opera houses and festivals and over 100 different symphonic orchestra around the world.
Noseda’s intense recording activity counts more than 80 CDs, many of which have been celebrated by critics and received awards for labels like Chandos, Deutsche Grammophon, Warner, Helicon and Foné. He has championed the works of neglected Italian composers through his Musica Italiana recordings for Chandos.
