Andrey Boreyko

Andrey Boreyko has been Music Director of Florida’s Artis-Naples since 2014. Under his leadership, the Naples Philharmonic has commissioned new works and attracted notable soloists from across the world. He balances traditional repertory with imaginative, diverse programming, for which he has gained a distinguished reputation worldwide.

In 2012, he was appointed music director of the Orchestre National de Belgique, a post held for five years. He was music director of the Düsseldorf Symphony from 2009 to 2014 and chief conductor of the Jenaer Philharmonie (of which he is now Honorary Conductor), Winnipeg Symphony, and Bern Symphony Orchestra. He received awards for the most innovative concert programming in three consecutive seasons from the Deutscher Musikverleger-Verband—the first in the history of the prize. He made his San Francisco Symphony debut in 2015.

This season Mr. Boreyko appears with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, the Berlin Radio Symphony, Bamberg Symphony, the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Ottawa, as well as return engagements with the Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Houston symphony orchestras. A passionate advocate for less widely-known works, Mr. Boreyko champions compositions by Victoria Borisova-Ollas in an extensive concert and recording project with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, debuts with the Gothenburg Symphony, and returns to the RAI National Symphony, and the Helsinki Philharmonic.

Mr. Boreyko has conducted the Berlin Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Munich Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Dresden, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Vienna Symphony, Filharmonica della Scala, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Royal Concertgebouw, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Tonhalle-Orchester Zurich, London Symphony, the Philharmonia Orchestra, and the Rotterdam Philharmonic. In North America, he recently appeared at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony, and worked with the New York and Los Angeles philharmonics, and the orchestras of Cleveland, Philadelphia, Toronto, Boston, Baltimore, Detroit, and Pittsburgh.

Mr. Boreyko’s discography with the Stuttgart Radio Orchestra (of which he previously served as Principal Guest Conductor) includes recordings of Pärt's Lamentate and Silvestrov’s Symphony No. 6 (both for ECM records), the premiere recording of his original version of the Suite from Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, and Shostakovich’s Symphonies Nos. 1, 4, 6, 8, 9, and 15 on Hänssler Classics. He has also recorded Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony with the Düsseldorf Symphony, and Lutosławski’s Chain 2 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for Yarling Records. Mr. Boreyko recorded Górecki’s Symphony No. 4 with the London Philharmonic for Nonesuch, which was subsequently also premiered by the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the US under his direction.
