  • Maestro; New York Philharmonic | David Geffen Hall

    • The New York Met’s musical director Yannick Nézet-Séguin serves as advisor, meaning not just an accuracy in the way Cooper conducts, and conducts himself, but also in the glorious way his music is used throughout.

    • The tour de force of the Mahler 2 in Ely Cathedral was well done, and Cooper’s performance as Bernstein was remarkable, coached by the New York Met’s musical director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin. … I found ‘Maestro’ a refreshing novelty, a film about a world I have worked in for over 40 years and which I recognised clearly.

    • As Cooper’s conducting consultant, Nézet-Séguin was an indispensable part of the film’s success. He knows a thing or two about what goes into making a master.

    • His wild conducting style is passionate and highly energetic, and his seasonal programming jumps across all musical genres. it’s Nézet-Séguin’s guiding hand and spirited interpretation that gives Maestro its verity and lusty cinematic thrill. Along with conducting orchestras with his wild physicality of thrusting arms, exaggerated expressions and fleet, flying fingers, Nézet-Séguin is behind the recent resurgence of the Metropolitan Opera

    • the revolutionary artist whose intense conducting techniques are terrifically recreated by Cooper, aided by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, to bring the spirit of Bernstein back to life.

    • The orchestra performed the passage under the baton of both Cooper and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the movie’s conducting adviser, who worked with Cooper for several years, not only teaching him to conduct but to conduct convincingly as Lenny.
