Current Stock:
London Philharmonic Orchestra, Yannick Nezet-Seguin

Yannick Nezet-Seguin was Principal Guest Conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra from 2008 to 2014 and has become one of the world’s most renowned conductors, currently holding leadership posts with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Montreal’s Orchestre Metropolitain. In 2020 he will succeed James Levine as the third Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera, New York. The three works heard on this disc are taken from live concert recordings at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, and together offer a summary of Nezet-Seguin’s nine year relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Yannick Nezet-Seguin made his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2007 with Dvorak’s vibrant Sixth Symphony; this repeat performance from 2016 is coupled with Dvorak’s powerful and strikingly original overture to Othello.
