Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Debussy and Prokofiev

The culmination of this concert with Yannick Nézet-Séguin is Sergei Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, a both overpowering and vivid work, which also includes “the primitive nature of Russian song ... in its melodies” (A. Khachaturian). The French-Canadian Nézet-Séguin opens the concert with French repertoire: Maurice Ravel’s charming Menuet antique and Claude Debussy’s dazzling La Mer – a masterpiece of musical Impressionism.
