In 2016 he was recognized as Conductor of the Year at the International Opera Awards. Music Director of the Teatro Regio Torino since 2007, his visionary leadership over the last decade has brought the opera house firmly into the realm of the leading international companies. He has tirelessly ushered in a new era of multimedia and ambitious global touring initiatives, which have made the Teatro Regio Torino one of Italy's most important cultural ambassadors.
In January 2016, Maestro Noseda was appointed the eighth Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra, Washington, D.C. from the 2017-18 season. In 2016 he was also appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Principal Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra since 2012, Maestro Noseda is also a regular guest of the Cleveland Orchestra, Filarmonica della Scala, NHK Symphony, Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Philadelphia Orchestra and the Vienna Symphony. He also continues to work with institutions where he has held posts, including the BBC Philharmonic, which he led from 2002-2011; the Pittsburgh Symphony, where the Victor de Sabata Chair was created for him; and the Mariinsky Theatre, which appointed him its first-ever foreign Principal Guest Conductor in 1997, a position he held for a decade.

Maestro Noseda has a legacy of over fifty recordings, many of which have been praised by critics and received numerous awards. His Musica Italiana recording project, which he initiated ten years ago, has chronicled underappreciated Italian repertoire and brought to light many masterpieces deserving of attention. Conducting the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino, he has also recorded opera albums with celebrated vocalists, including Anna Netrebko and Diana Damrau.
