BBC Phil Extends Noseda’s Run

“Gianandrea Noseda, 42-year-old principal conductor of the Manchester-based BBC Philharmonic for four years, has extended his contract by two years and will now be known as chief conductor… Noseda has endeared himself to Manchester audiences and has won wide critical praise. He throws himself into a score (Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet for example) with passion, sometime crouching so low you fear he will end up on his knees or leaping so high that those in the front row of Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall prepare for his imminent arrival in their laps.”
