Andrey Boreyko has been Music Director of Artis—Naples since September 2014. He has brought a new intensity to Artis—Naples and the Naples Philharmonic with his inspired leadership, commissioning new works and attracting soloists of the highest calibre. The driving force behind the continued artistic growth of Artis—Naples and the Naples Philharmonic, Andrey balances traditional repertoire with imaginative, diverse programming for which he has gained a distinguished reputation worldwide.
Andrey has forged strong long-term relationships with the most prestigious orchestras across Europe. This leads him to appearances this season with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and Bamberger Symphoniker, among others. Much sought-after as a guest conductor in North America, Andrey’s versatility and broad repertoire take him to the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Ottawa, as well as re-invitations to San Francisco Symphony, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Houston Symphony orchestras, where he is regular guest. A prolific conductor of the great symphonic repertoire and a passionate advocate for less widely known works, Andrey champions compositions by Victoria Borisova-Ollas in an extensive concert and recording project with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra this season, debuts with the Gothenburg Symphony and returns to the Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra.
Vadim Gluzman’s extraordinary artistry brings to life the glorious violinistic tradition of the 19th and 20th centuries. Gluzman’s wide repertoire embraces adventurous new music and his performances are heard around the world through live broadcasts and a striking catalogue of award-winning recordings exclusively for the BIS label.
The Israeli violinist performs with the Berlin Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Israel Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, London Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhaus, and many others, and enjoys collaborations with today’s leading conductors, including Riccardo Chailly, Christoph von Dohnányi, Tugan Sokhiev, Sir Andrew Davis, Neeme Järvi, Michael Tilson Thomas, Semyon Bychkov, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Paavo Järvi, and Hannu Lintu. His festival appearances include Tanglewood, Ravinia, Lockenhaus, Verbier, and the North Shore Chamber Music Festival in Chicago, which he founded with pianist Angela Yoffe.
Highlights this season include Gluzman’s debut appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw and performances with the Boston Symphony and Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. He celebrates Leonard Bernstein’s centennial year with both the BBC and San Francisco Symphonies, and gives the European premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s Triple Concerto with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zürich. He plays the legendary 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivari on extended loan to him through the generosity of the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
