Born in Clermont-Ferrand (France), acclaimed young conductor Nicolas Nebout enjoys sharing his passion for music without boundaries and developing a close relationship with the performers he works with.
While Nicolas' musical life started as a cellist, musicologist and conductor, he has already shown a great conducting personality with charisma, technical prowess, and artistic open-mindedness. His performances are renowned for a powerful expression, a deep sensitivity, and a "rare sense of the musical phrase", driven "beautifully by a poetic gesture".
Nicolas recently met and worked with renowned conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Sakari Oramo, Alexander Vedernikov, Marin Alsop and Thomas Adès. While working regularly with various orchestras like the London City Orchestra, Dulwich Symphony Orchestra and Essex Symphony Orchestra, he is Principal Guest conductor at Sinfonia Tamesa and guest conductor at British Police Symphony Orchestra and City of Southampton Orchestra.
In November 2015, he conducted a fundraising concert at St James's Piccadilly in aid of UNICEF Syria Children Appeal with a selection of some of the finest musicians in the UK (from orchestras such as the LSO, LPO, Philharmonia, BBC Phil & Britten Sinfonia) and the internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly.
