One of the most hotly demanded conductors of our day, Canadian maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin—current music director of the Metropolitan Opera, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Orchestre Métropolitain in Montreal—joins the world-class Chamber Orchestra of Europe at the Baden-Baden Summer Festival to complete their cycle of Brahms's symphonies! In this concluding volume, Yannick brings his unique brand of immediacy and charisma to Brahms's Third Symphony in F, brimming with memorable melodies (one of which inspired Sinatra's "Take My Love") and the final Symphony No. 4 in E Minor, rich in allusions to Beethoven but decisively Brahmsian in its scope and character. In the hands of the COE, with their renowned strings and winds, these masterpieces resound with undeniable majesty at the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus.
