Chief Conductor
Andrea Battistoni

Born in Verona in 1987, Andrea Battistoni is a rising star with an international reputation as one of the most important conductors of his generation. He was appointed First Guest Conductor at the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa in 2013 and Chief Conductor of the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) in 2016.
In Tokyo he has proved to be a sensation with his charisma and sensitive musicality, conducting the TPO in operas such as Nabucco, Rigoletto, Madama Butterfly (with the Nikikai), and Aida (co-produced grand opera), as well as numerous symphonic works including Respighi’s Roman Trilogy, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. The concert-style operas he has led - Turandot (2015), Iris (2016), and Mefistofele (2018) have secured his reputation as a leading light with critics and audiences alike. He has been regularly releasing CDs with the TPO through Nippon Columbia.
Other noteworthy engagements include those at the Teatro alla Scala, La Fenice in Venice, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Stockholm Opera House, Arena di Verona, Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Mariinsky Theater, and world-renowned orchestras such as the Filarmonica della Scala, Accademia di Santa Cecilia, and Israel Philharmonic.
Future plans include the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Bayerische Staatsoper, Dutch National Opera, and Opera Australia. His book Non è musica per vecchi was published by Rizzoli 2012 and by Ongaku-No-Tomo-Sha in Japan in 2017.
In 2021, Andrea Battistoni, performing with Tokyo Phil, won the OPUS KLASSIK Prize 2021 in the 20th/21st Century symphonic category, one of the most prestigious classical awards in Europe, for their international disc, "Dvorak: Symphony No. 9, ’From the New World' & Works of Akira Ifukube.”
