Andris Nelsons is Music Director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Gewandhauskapellmeister of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. These two positions, in addition to his leadership of a pioneering alliance between both institutions, have firmly established Grammy Award-winning Nelsons as one of the most renowned and innovative conductors on the international scene today.

Andris Nelsons conducted with concise focus and vigor and elicited the orchestra both tonal beauty and technical precision and visible enthusiasm.

The Boston Globe

Nelsons’ positions in Boston and Leipzig commenced in the 2014/15 season and in February 2018, respectively. Autumn 2019 marked a ground-breaking highlight for Nelsons, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig: three performances featuring musicians from both institutions within one joint orchestra were given at Boston’s Symphony Hall as part of the alliance between the two orchestras. In 2020, this unique partnership between both orchestras culminated in another highlight, a joint release of the major symphonic works by Richard Strauss for Deutsche Grammophon, including Strauss’s Festliches Präludium jointly performed by musicians from both orchestras. To mark the release, Nelsons and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig completed a residency tour to London, Hamburg, Vienna and Paris to perform two all-Strauss programmes in May 2022.
