Can you say, "Yannick Nézet-Séguin"?

A much-needed bit of comedy within the world of classical music, Nick Canellakis has a great ongoing video series called Conversations wtih Nick Canellakis.

A little bit Stephen Colbert-esque, Nick chats with greats like conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Emmanuel Ax (or, Yo-Yo Ma’s accompanist) about their work. We can’t quite tell if the interviewees knew what they were getting into with Nick, but we like it.
