Another new conductor is taken for a spin

The 32-year-old French-Canadian Yannick Nézet-Séguin (above) has been appointed principal guest conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. In a press release Timothy Walker, chief executive of the LPO, says - 'Taking outstanding musicality, knowledge and technique as a given Yannick's brilliance lies in his ability to move players to exceptional performance and to communicate a strength and vitality of vision to the listener that is totally engrossing'.

Reports elsewhere suggest Yannick Nézet-Séguin is a promising young conductor.

Health warning - test spins can end in tears.
