Cellist Edgar Moreau live

Post by Rach3 » Mon Nov 05, 2018 4:28 pm

I follow this young French cellist, but have no recordings yet.

▪ Qigang Chen, Itinéraire d'une illusion
▪ Dmitri Shostakovich, Cello Concerto No. 2, Op. 126
▪ Dmitri Shostakovich, Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, Op. 47

Tremendous programme. All you need is a FREE VOD account easy to sign for at the site link above. The Chen work was remarkable, enthusiastic audience response. The Shostakovich Concerto is a very dark, but powerful work, not for the faint of heart ( was surprised to see Moreau program it, bravo to him ! ), a tour de force for all concerned ( Moreau with score ), works better I think live than in a recording ( mine Rostropovich with Oistrkah conducting ). No encore, despite audience wishing one. I did not hear the Symphony No.5.
