Yannick Nézet-Séguin makes his debut with Berlioz and Prokofiev
It was somewhat of a sensation when in 2010 it was announced that the then just 35-year-old Yannick Nézet-Séguin was to be the next music director of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Shortly afterwards, he made his debut with the Berliner Phillharmoniker. Together with Yefim Bronfman, he performed Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2. The concert also included Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique with its wide-ranging scenarios, from airy waltzes to garish grotesquerie.
