Maestro stays: Yannick renews his third jobmain
The apparently indefatigable Yannick Nézet-Séguin has signed on for five more years with the hometown orch that gave him his first break, the Orchestre Métropolitain of Montreal.
‘My commitment has never wavered to the first orchestra that was prepared to place its trust in a young conductor 15 years ago,’ he said today, signing a contract that sees him through to 2021.
Yannick, 40, is also music director of the Philadelphia and the Rotterdam Phil. He’s due to leave the latter in 2018.
