Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir in a luminous, expansive performance of Brahms' German Requiem recorded live in 2009, during Nézet-Séguin's first season as the orchestra's principal guest conductor. The conductor's conception is notable for creating a sense of breadth and serenity while maintaining a purposefulness and momentum that never allow the long lines to sag; it's a beautifully executed balancing act that allows the work to unfold with the spaciousness and grandeur it needs to make its maximum impact

Royal Festival Hall, London. This was its London premiere, with Prosseda as soloist, and the London Philharmonic conducted by Canadian powerhouse Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Even though the performance was elegant, energetic and assured, the piece itself disappointed. The sketches consist largely of the piano part for the first two movements, and the unimaginative quality of the writing was highlighted by Prosseda's decision to offer the F sharp minor Song Without Words as an encore. The choral singing was wonderfully intense, and soloists Elizabeth Watts and Stéphane Degout were both outstanding. The long silence at its close, which no one dared fracture with applause, was testament to its impact.
