Yannick Nézet-Séguin

The Russian
Soul

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Rachmaninoff’s The Bells, a multifaceted portrait of human destiny that showcases three exceptional soloists and the Chœur Métropolitain. The exotic lyricism of Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances is sure to charm while the untamed energy of a Shrovetide fair is punctuated by a tragic finale in Stravinsky’s Petrushka. The flamboyant colours and furious rhythms of Russian music reach their apogee in these life-affirming works.
