Principal Guest Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin Joins London Philharmonic for Two Concerts in October

The London Philharmonic Orchestra's dynamic Principal Guest Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin opens his 2011/12 account with two performances this month. He conducts Schubert's riveting Symphony No. 9, the 'Great', in a concert which is dedicated to Sir Thomas Beecham, the Orchestra's founder, who died 50 years ago. Aldo Ciccolini joins the symphony on piano for Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20.

On Oct 15th Yannick Nézet-Séguin shows why he has a special reputation for choral conducting and his interpretation of Rossini's Stabat Mater on 15 October is sure to be a fascinating, transcendental experience. Eri Nakamura soprano, Ruxandra Donose mezzo soprano, Ji-Min Park tenor, Matthew Rose bass and the London Philharmonic Choir complete the ensemble for this incredible music.
