Yannick Nézet-Séguin made his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2007 with Dvorák's vibrant Sixth Symphony, a concert that led to the invitation to become the Orchestra's Principal Guest Conductor in 2008. Returning to the symphony nine years later made for a 'fearsome' performance, coupled this time with Dvorák's powerful and strikingly original overture to Othello. Like Shakespeare's play, the piece is focussed on the dark side of human love and it completes Dvorák's trilogy of overtures, 'Nature, Life & Love'. This live concert recording of the Seventh Symphony comes from Nézet-Séguin's first year with the Orchestra; it might not be Dvorák's most popular symphony, but it's arguably his best.
