Rio de Janeiro: Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s successful international tenure comes to the United States when he leads the New York Philharmonic for an all-Piazzolla programme at Lincoln Center on 22 August. It’s not a coincidence that at this time New York, where the Philharmonic is located, plays host to the Latin American Year, whose first anniversary will be marked with this concert by the French-Canadian musical genius.
