2023/2024 marks Andrzej Boreyko’s final season as Music and Artistic Director of the Warsaw Philharmonic. This season, they return to the International Krzysztof Penderecki Festival, Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival and Chopin and his Europe Festival and will tour across Japan and South Korea. Andrzej Boreyko also enters his season as Resident Conductor of Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano, conducting their season-opening concert at the Teatro alla Scala which pairs Gustav Mahler’s Lied von der Erde with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. He returns to open the Mahler Festival in Leipzig with Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, and will also conduct the passacaglia Mystery of Time by Czech composer Miloslav Kabelač.

In the spring of 2023, he made an outstanding return to the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducting Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 alongside works by Victoria Poleva and Elena Langer. He received glowing reviews, including: ‘[Boreyko] gave a masterclass in how a conductor serves the interests of composers and their works, and how to leave the audience shouting for more… rapturous playing by the whole orchestra; elegant and insightful conducting’ (bachtrack.com).

Andrzej Boreyko is also a popular guest conductor of the ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien, Prague Symphony Orchestra, Aarhus Symfoniorkester and Royal Scottish National Orchestra, as well as many others, including the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Orchestre symphonique de Montreal, Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai, Orquesta Filarmonica de Gran Canaria, Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg and Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice (NOSPR).

In 2022, Andrzej Boreyko concluded his eighth and final season as Music Director of Artis—Naples. Previous appointments include Music Director positions of the Jenaer Philharmonie, Symphoniker Hamburg, Berner Sinfonieorchester, Dusseldorfer Symphoniker, Winnipeg Symphony and Belgian National Orchestra.
