Watch: Yannick’s partner and Celine Dion sing him a love song

There’s a popular weekly show on CBC French TV called “En direct de l’univers” in which a celebrity is presented with a bouquet of songs representing his or her life.

This weekend’s guest was Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

In the course of the show, his partner Pierre Tourville sang the Jacques Brel ballad Quand On A Que L’Amour (If You Only Have Love), joined from Las Vegas by Celine Dion.

Yannick was stunned at first, and visibly moved from there on.

    • Eh…it was official juste in Montreal? I have read that he appreciated his partner’s support in the private life (I think this interview is available on the site of “Le journal de Montréal”.

      • When Nézet-Séguin was hired from the Philadelphia Orchestra he proudly introduced his companion (of many years) during the Press Conference. The young man is also a member of the string section of Orchestre Métropolitain. So it was NOT official in Montreal only. YNS always was proud of his lifestyle.

  • Precision: Céline Dion was singing live from Las Vegas, not L.A.; also the young cellist seen during the song is Stéphane Tétreault playing on the 6+ million dollars cello bought by Madame Jacqueline Desmarais from the late Bernard Greenhouse rights holder (Reuning and Son Violins), he of the famous BeauxArts Trio.

  • “CBC French TV” is called Radio-Canada.
    Also, one should mention that Pierre Tourville is a violist in the Orchestre Métropolitain, as well as their Chorus master.
