About Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin has had one of the most meteoric rises of any conductor in the early 21st century. Since conducting virtually all of the major Canadian orchestras while still in his twenties, he has established a substantial international career. Nézet-Séguin is the music director of the Orchestre Métropolitain du Montréal, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Metropolitan Opera, as well as the Honorary Conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic. In 2021, Nézet-Séguin issued his first-ever solo piano album, Introspection, and a Grammy Award-winning recording of Florence Price's first and third symphonies with the Philadelphia Orchestra. The following year, he led the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in a cycle of Beethoven's symphonies, and he backed Lisa Batiashvili on her album Secret Love Letters, once again with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
