Susanna Stefani Caetani


In recent seasons Michał Nesterowicz has consolidated his position as one of the most recognisable Polish conductors in the world. The recognition of orchestral players, music lovers and critics has led to engagements with the likes of Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Konzerthausorchester Berlin and Tonkunstler Orchestra in Vienna.

He was the winner of the Cadaqués Orchestra European Conducting Competition in 2008 and among the prizewinners of the sixth Grzegorz Fitelberg International Conducting Competition in Katowice.

Nesterowicz has appeared on multiple occasions with Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, Münchner Philharmoniker, Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice, National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra, Singapore Symphony Orchestra and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. He has also worked with WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Gulbenkian Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, Kyoto Symphony Orchestra, Copenhagen Philharmonic, Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine and Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana.

He was the First Guest Conductor of Sinfonieorchester Basel (2016-2020), Chief Conductor of Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife (2012-2016), Artistic Director of Orquesta Sinfónica de Chile (2008-2012) and Artistic Director of Gdańsk Philharmonic (2004-2008). He is currently holding the position of Principal Guest Conductor of Arthur Rubinstein Philharmonic Orchestra in Łódź.

In the 2023/24 season, Nesterowicz debuts with Taipei Symphony Orchestra, Stuttgart Philharmoniker, Pacific Symphony Orchestra, George Enescu Philharmonic Bucharest and returns to Taipei Symphony Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Phion Orkest van Gelderland & Overijssel as well as Hague Philharmonic and Malmö Opera. Other highlights of the upcoming season include Polish engagements with Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, National Forum of Music Wrocław and Łódź Philharmonic Orchestra, and a Spanish return to Orquesta Sinfónica de la Región de Murcia and Orquestra Sinfonica de Galicia.


"Lutoslawski’s Concerto for Orchestra (…) made for a thrilling listen, in a performance that showed Nesterowicz’ command of the score"
George Hall, Guardian

"The understanding between Altstaedt and the Deutschen Symphonie-Orchester Berlin under Michal Nesterowicz works brilliantly. ... Under Nesterowicz, the Berlin orchestra brings out subtle differences between seemingly similar composers."
Werner Teurich, Spiegel

"Under his baton the orchestra’s playing was highly textured, dynamically varied and highly flexible in terms of phrasing."
