In a very short time, Yannick Nezet-Seguin has become one of the most sought-after young conductors in the world, popular with orchestras and audiences alike. Recently named as Music Director Designate of the Philadelphia Orchestra, he succeeded Valery Gergiev as Music Director of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra in 2008. He is also Chief Guest Conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. For the first of four projected discs with BIS, Nezet-Seguin and his Rotterdam players have recorded Hector Berlioz' masterpiece Symphonie fantastique, in a full-blooded and luxurious performance which at the same time respects the work's classical proportions. The work is here followed by the 'lyrical scene' Cleopatre (often referred to as La Mort de Cleopatre), composed shortly before as Berlioz' entry in the competition for the prestigious Prix de Rome. Performing the part of Cleopatra is the electrifying soprano Anna Caterina Antonacci in one of her rare appearances on disc.
