• Yannick Nézet-Séguin is one of the most sought after conductors in the world. He is the Music Director of the Philadelphia Orchestra, a post he assumed in September 2012.   He is also Music Director of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, and Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Orchestre Métropolitain of Montreal.

• Since Yannick Nézet-Séguin became the artistic director in 2000, the Orchestre Métropolitain's reputation for passion and its drive for excellence have continued to grow — in Montréal, in Québec, in Canada and abroad.

• With the release of Symphony No. 2 performed by the Orchestre Métropolitain under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, ATMA Classique continues its cycle of the complete symphonies of Anton Bruckner.   Nézet-Séguin was recently appointed Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, a post he will assume in 2020.

• The previous recordings of Bruckner's symphonies by the OM/YNS team have won unanimous praise from critics worldwide, and have established Yannick Nézet-Séguin as a brilliant conductor of Bruckner.   “This is a very beautiful Bruckner Fourth Symphony, by an increasingly interesting Bruckner conductor.   It's refreshing to hear Bruckner's orchestral writing brought to life on so many levels, captured faithfully by the recording.” — BBC Music Magazine
