This makes me happy. :)  So glad to learn he's a fan!  

Here's a nice New York Times article about his appointment to the Met - the first time in 40 years that the Metropolitan Opera has a new musical director! -  http://www.nytimes.c...ector.html?_r=0

Watching En direct de l'univers with Yannick Nezet Seguin - what a great show!

He spoke briefly about how much he loves Celine (and has since Une Colombe), and how much of a thrill it was to meet her at that show in Montreal in 2016. Interestingly, heading up the string section on the show was none other than.... Celine's concertmaster Philippe Dunnigan!

And Celine was there via video (live from Vegas, I assume!) singing a bit of Quand on n'a que l'amour, in a duet with Yannick's boyfriend!

They also had Rufus Wainwright and he happened to sing my favourite Rufus song (April Fool's). All my favourite people!

So thrilled to have Yannick in NYC. Hope he does something with Celine one day. He has said several times he'd love to... hope it happens! How cool would it be to have Celine sing at the Met?!

Oh, and they just closed with Rufus singing a great version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Aaaaaah.

I hope that video of Celine's bit surfaces somewhere online. She sounded great!

Ah, here we go!



And if you want to see Yannick in his element, here he is leading a vocal master class at Juilliard -



I'm really excited to see what he does with the Met. Some grand plans - https://www.nytimes....ater-women.html

After watching this, I have to say Celine does this song justice. She sings it with such feeling, showing exactly what the lyrics convey. Good job queen!

She looks amazing and sounds sooo good.

I don't mind if she brought back this song into some of her shows.
It so good :wub:

Hopefully they will work together some day

What a nice surprise! Quand on n'a que l'amour, sitting in the recording studio :wub:  Judging by that setting and being in Vegas, that must have been done while she was recording something for the new album? :)

It’s crazy, she is constantly in the recording studio (and I love it!!!). I wonder if she is recording an initial version of songs first and then they figure out what they really want and she records again and adds the final touches, or if it’s brand new songs each time. Remember during recording 1fille&4types she recorded initial veesions of songs in Paris first, and then rerecorded them in Las Vegas again or changed and improved things. Maybe it’s the same now. However, during the Taking Chances sessions she recorded one song each session without going back and doing it again. I think this is so interesting!

I would love to have a full, very long documentation process of making that album on DVD that goes beyond promotional clips! I think the behind the scenes processes are fascinating, especially when you are a real fan!

Yannick Nézet-Séguin is the newly-appointed Musical Director of the Met - one of the world's most prestigious opera houses, the Met's first new MD in ~40 years, and only the 3rd MD in the Met's 130+ year history.
He also conducts the Philadelphia Orchestra and Montreal's Orchestre Métropolitain, and has previously also conducted Rotterdam Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Royal Opera House, among others.
He's one of the most in-demand conductors in the world.

He has been a conducting prodigy all his life - started in grade school, and was conducting major ensembles around Montreal as of his late teens /early twenties.
People love him because not only is he great at what he does, but is "young and hip" and a breath of fresh air into what is often considered a stodgy art form. (When not conducting, he's into hop-hop, works out like an athlete and posts about it obsessively (check out his IG!), sports tattoos, has a cat named Rafa after his tennis hero Rafael Nadal, etc.) He has been with his partner, violinist Pierre Tourville (who you see singing with Celine in that vid) for 23 years.

There's a nice profile of him here: https://www.metopera...les/open-score/
And also several nice profile links in my other posts about him in the past: here (incl. an excerpt of his Met debut - Carmen) and here and here (see these posts and his FB for pics of when he met Celine at her 2016 show in Montreal; he seems to be good friends with a lot of her musicians, not surprisingly).
He has said several times he'd love to work with Celine and bring her to the Met in some capacity (see here)

Watch him conducting as a 10-yr old in this vid (~2:40 min) :)

Yeah, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Celine episode of En direct de l'univers was the only one they pre-recorded? Normally it's all live, right?

I feel it's live because the audio is a bit late. It's usually like that when they use a live video.

Those were the rehearsals of the songs in Paris, she wasn't recording the songs yet just rehearsing them with the team of songwriters. But they were filming the making of the album so they made it look professional with Céline having her make-up and looking as if she was recording the songs, but if you notice in the DVD they dub the playback of some songs just like they sound in the CD :)

Unfortunately we didn't got to see barely any footage from the recording sessions that took place in Las Vegas, were she did lots of grace notes and played with the songs like she only used to do a few years ago :wub:

always live. I don't know how they did it, with the delay we see often with live news etc. Must be a good technology.  Just the Celine one was recorded.

Mods - maybe move posts from here and here to this new thread? Starting from about 7:30pm ET last night?

Also, the Celine extract is now on YT -

what a nice surprise! And she sounds amazing, it would be great when she would sing it again in some of her next french shows in the future.
And this makes me wondering, because she slayed some of not that easy songs of the 90´s this year, like this one or can´t help falling in love, so if she would sing for example the power of the dream again this or next year, 100% live, with all the big notes/belts, I´m sure she would still slay it after all these years... :)  she´s simply the best

"That guy" is Yannick's life partner of 23 years, Pierre Tourville.
They met when studying together at Montréal Consérvatoire as teenagers and have been together ever since. He's a violinist and also directs Montreal's Chœur Métropolitain, where Yannick's mum sings.
As you'll undoubtedly remember from the Celine episode, En direct de l'univers is a bit of a family love-in. That's what this was about.

I always wonder when she does things like this (just like what she did with the message on that "Ashes" dance message thing) : what is the point?

I mean she is all dressed up, made up and stuff.. for 1 min?

I mean...I often have to tell my family to keep their mouths shut. This would have been one of those times.
