Yannick Nézet-Séguin Perspectives
Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s pure joy in making music and command of a limitless range of repertoire make him one of the most talented and brilliantly versatile conductors of our time. As music director of The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera, his “youth, vibrancy, and solid expertise” (The New Yorker) have inspired transcendent performances that herald a new golden age.
Nézet-Séguin’s Perspectives continues in the first half of 2020 in performances of Beethoven’s complete symphonies with The Philadelphia Orchestra, followed by two concerts with The MET Orchestra in June that feature works by Beethoven, Prokofiev, R. Strauss, and Jörg Widmann. He concludes his Perspectives in the 2020–2021 season conducting both the Philadelphia and MET orchestras, as well as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (of which he is an honorary member) and the Westminster Choir in a wide range of repertoire that spans Beethoven to Mason Bates and Missy Mazzoli. There are also appearances by guest artists Mitsuko Uchida and Lisa Batiashvili, as well as a rare opportunity to hear Nézet-Séguin conduct choral music in the intimate setting of Zankel Hall.
