Andrey Boreyko

Andrey Boreyko

Now in his sixth season as Music Director of Artis—Naples, Andrey Boreyko’s inspiring leadership has raised the artistic standard and brought a new intensity to the Naples Philharmonic. The driving force behind the continued creative growth of this multidisciplinary organization, Andrey continues to explore connections between art forms through interdisciplinary thematic programming. During the 2018-19 season, Andrey paired the Ballets Russes-inspired contemporary visual artworks of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave with performances of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella and The Firebird — elaborating upon the meaning, style and influence of art and artists upon one another. A strong proponent of modern artistic voices, Andrey has recently commissioned several new works by composers including Fazil Say, Giya Kancheli and D. J. Sparr.

This season marks the start of Andrey’s tenure as Music and Artistic Director of Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition to their regular collaborations at home, this season Andrey Boreyko and the orchestra will perform at the Chopin and his Europe Festival, the Beethoven Easter Festival, and across Japan. 

A popular guest conductor with major orchestras across the globe, Andrey’s highlights this season include a substantial tour of Europe with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia (including Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt and Munich), engagements with National Arts Center Ottawa, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, Prague Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg, Dresden Philharmonic and Monte Carlo Philharmonic.

Over the past few seasons, orchestras with which Andrey has worked have included Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Berliner Philharmoniker, Gothenburg Symphony, Bamberger Symphoniker, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Münchner Philharmoniker, Staatskapelle Dresden, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Tonhalle Orchester Zürich, London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, and Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. In North America, he has conducted New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Dallas, and Detroit symphony orchestras.

A passionate advocate for lesser-known works, Andrey championed compositions by Victoria Borisova-Ollas in an extensive concert and recording project with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra last season. As part of the Prague Spring Festival 2018, Andrey conducted the Prague Symphony Orchestra in a rendition of Jan Novak’s Dido and this season conducts Zdeněk Fibich’s rarely performed Vodnik. He returned to Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin in February 2018 with a performance of Valentin Silvestrov’s Requiem for Larissa.

His first position in Europe was as Chief Conductor of Poznań Philharmonic. He has also held the positions of Chief Conductor of the Jenaer Philharmonie (of which he is now Honorary Conductor and with which he received awards for the most innovative concert programming in three consecutive seasons from the Deutscher Musikverleger-Verband), Hamburger Symphoniker, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Berner Sinfonieorchester, and Music Director of the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker.

Alexandre Kantorow

Alexandre Kantorow

At just 16 years old, Alexandre Kantorow was invited to play for La Folle Journée in Nantes and Warsaw with the Sinfonia Varsovia. Since then, he has played with many orchestras, such as the Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra with Augustin Dumay, the National Symphony Orchestra in Taipei, the Orchestre national des Pays de la Loire, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège, the Orquesta Sinfónico Nacional de Colombia and others.

In 2015, Kantorow appeared in the opening season at the new Philharmonic Hall in Paris with the Pasdeloup Orchestra, and he returned in 2018 for the first concert of a tour with the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France. Kantorow gave his second recital at the Vuitton Foundation after a very successful recital of Russian music in 2016, which has since been recorded by BIS. BIS has offered Kantorow carte blanche with his choice in repertoire and, among his projects with them, all the works for piano and orchestra of Camille Saint-Saëns. In June 2019, Kantorow won first place at the 16th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Russia — the first French pianist to have placed first in the history of the competition.
