Andrei Boreiko (Conductor)

Now in his fifth season as Music Director of Artis—Naples in Florida, 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 artistic growth of this multi-disciplinary organization, Boreyko has commissioned several new works including orchestral pieces by Fazil Say and Giya Kancheli, and a fantasy for violin and orchestra by Gabriel Prokofiev titled Olga’s Miniatures. This piece was inspired by an exhibition at Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum featuring the art collection of the great American philanthropist, patron and collector, Olga Hirshhorn. This unique collection, bequeathed to The Baker Museum upon her death in 2015, consists of more than 400 works created by some of the foremost modern European and American artists such as Pablo Picasso, Willem de Kooning, Georgia O’Keeffe, Alexander Calder, Larry Rivers and Josef Albers.

A popular guest conductor with major orchestras across the globe, Boreyko’s 2018/19 season started with a tour to the Ljubljana, Rheingau, Gstaad, and Grafenegg festivals with the Filarmonica della Scala. Future highlights include 2018/19 engagements with the Prague Symphony, Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonica Nazionale RAI, Sinfonia Varsovia (with whom he will appear in the Palace of Arts’ Bridging Europe Festival in September 2018 with Piotr Anderszewski), Seattle, Minnesota, Toronto, San Francisco, and Sydney Symphony orchestras. Further ahead, he will conduct Salzburg Mozarteum, Rundfunk Symphonie Orchester Berlin, Frankfurt Museumsgesellschaft, and Dresden Philharmonic.

Over the past few seasons, orchestras with whom Andrey Boreyko 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 Gewandhausorchester, Wiener Symphoniker, Filharmonica della Scala, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Royal Concertgebouw, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, London Symphony, Philharmonia, and Rotterdam Philharmonic. In North America, he has conducted New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Dallas and Detroit Symphony Orchestras.

A passionate advocate for lesser-known works, Boreyko 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, Boreyko 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 Sinfonie Orchester Berlin in February 2018 with a performance of Valentin Silvestrov’s Requiem for Larissa.

Notable amongst Boreyko’s discography with the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR (of whom he was Principal Guest Conductor), are Arvo Pärt’s Lamentate and Valentin Silvestrov’s Symphony No. 6 (both for ECM records), the premiere recording of his original version of the Suite from Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk and Shostakovich symphonies No. 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 15, both on Hänssler Classics. He has also recorded Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony with the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, and Lutosławski’s Chain 2 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for Yarling Records. Nonesuch released a recording of the Górecki’s Symphony No. 4 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, shortly after Andrey Boreyko conducted the work in concert with them, subsequently performing the American premiere with Los Angeles Philharmonic. Of his (recently released) live recording with Poznan Philharmonic from 1995, Ivan Moody in the August 2018 Gramophonemagazine writes “Boreyko is masterly in sustaining the tension throughout the movement, right to the almost motionless final chords. Boreyko knows exactly what he is doing – again, the tension never flags and the pacing is exactly right – and Iżykowska is simply superb, perfectly at one with the orchestra. If you have not already guessed, I was in tears almost throughout the disc. Even if you have every other recording of this work in the catalogue, you should still buy this one. It is a masterly performance of a masterpiece”.

From 2012 Andrey Boreyko was Music Director of the Orchestre National de Belgique, a post he held with great commitment for five years, expanding the Orchestra’s activities nationally and internationally, including an annual performance in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. His first position in Europe was as Chief Conductor of Poznan Philharmonic. He has also held the positions of Chief Conductor of the Jenaer Philharmonie (of whom he is now Honorary Conductor), Hamburger Symphoniker, Winnipeg Symphony, Berner Sinfonieorchester as well as Music Director of the Düsseldorf Symphoniker (2009-2014).

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.
