Chamber Orchestra of Europe


Yannick Nezet-Seguin


For these revelatory performances - captured live at acclaimed concerts in Paris - Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the superb Chamber Orchestra of Europe, one of the world’s preeminent chamber orchestras.

Taking a fresh perspective on familiar music, Yannick Nézet-Séguin challenges the conventional view on Schumann's symphonies. The Canadian Maestro the composer’s music as rooted in the bipolar nature of the composer’s troubled psyche, emphasising dramatic shifts of temperament - not only between movements but even within a single phrase.

This set is Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s first recording of a complete symphony cycle.
