Yannick Nezet-Seguin (b1975)

“Yannick Nézet-Séguin, 31, shows every sign of becoming the Great Canadian Conductor for whom this country's classical music buffs have been waiting.”

John Terauds – Toronto Star

Yannick Nézet-Séguin was announced on December 12, 2006 as the next Music Director of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, succeeding Valery Gergiev at the start of the 2008 – 09 season. He is also the Artistic Director of the Orchestre Métropolitain in Montreal and has garnered three coveted Prix Opus prizes, namely the Découverte de l’année in 1999 and Prix du public in both 1999 and 2000, awarded by the Conseil Québécois de la Musique. He is the recipient of the 2000 Virginia Parker Prize, given by the Canada Council for the Arts.

Born in Montreal in 1975, Yannick Nézet-Séguin began piano lessons at the age of five and later entered the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Montréal where he studied piano with Anisia Campos and composition, chamber music, and conducting. While attending the Conservatoire, he also studied choral conducting at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and, in 1995, founded the vocal and instrumental ensemble La Chapelle de Montréal. He continued his training near a number of famous conductors, among them the great Italian conductor Carlo Maria Giulini between 1997 and 1998.
