The Warsaw National Philharmonic has announced the appointment of Russian conductor Andrey Boreyko as its new Music Director
The Warsaw National Philharmonic, in Warsaw, Poland, has this week announced the appointment of Russian conductor Andrey Boreyko as its new Music Director - effective from 2019.
"This appointment is indeed an honor for me ... I have Polish ancestry and the Polish part of my musical soul always feels so at home in Poland ..." the 61-year-old has said.
"To have the opportunity to work closely with such a wonderful orchestra as Warsaw Philharmonic is exciting," he has said.
Maestro Boreyko has been a frequent guest conductor with the ensemble since 2007 - and will replace veteran conductor Jacek Kaspszyk in the role.
He currently leads the Artis-Naples Orchestra, in Florida - and has previously served as Music Director of the Polish Poznań Symphony.
