Hélène and Yannick Nézet-Séguin have performed together all over the world, and this spring brings more of their artistic connection, performing monumental works of Beethoven and Brahms, in concert halls across two continents.

Their collaboration has been so successful that Yannick’s home Orchestre Métropolitain in Montreal has just been awarded the Opus Prize for “Concert of the year – classical, romantic, postromantic, impressionist music” for Yannick’s and Hélène’s performance of Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 3.

In May this year, Hélène will return to Philadelphia where she performs Beethoven Piano Concerto No.4 and Brahms Piano Concerto No.1 with Yannick and the Philadelphia Orchestra at Verizon Hall. The orchestra will then embark on a European tour with Hélène, performing Brahms Piano Concerto No.1 in Brussels, Luxembourg, Paris, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Vienna and Haifa.
