The canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin was awarded the Rheingau Musik Preis 2018. The award, which was initiated by the Rheingau Musik Festival, is awarded for the 25th time this year and is endowed with € 10,000. The prize money is provided by the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art.

Jury's assessment

Yannick Nézet-Séguin is one of the most exciting and promising conductors of our time. At just 43 years old, he is already part of the world elite of a new generation of conductors. His concerts are true events: emotional, dynamic, stirring! In addition, his sympathetic, refreshingly open and accessible personality makes him a real favorite in our industry: orchestras, soloists, promoters and audiences alike! Yannick Nézet-Séguin shows us how much leadership styles have changed and what positive dynamics a "hugging" relationship can unfold.

Rheingau Musik Preis

The Rheingau Musik Preis has since 1994 been awarded to an already prominent performer, composer, musicologist or musical institution in recognition of their overall contribution to music. In individual cases, too, the prize is also intended as a scholarship for deserving young musicians.

The award, which was initiated by the Rheingau Musik Festival, is endowed with € 10,000. The prize money is provided by the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art.
