More Info:

The young French cellist Edgar Moreau, an established Erato artist, is joined by his siblings - the violinists Raphaëlle and David and the pianist Jérémie - for Dvorák's five Bagatelles op 47 and Korngold's Suite op 23. As David points out, works for the combination of two violins, cello and piano are unusual: "These are wonderful pieces that are rarely played, so this is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on them." When it comes to playing as a family, Edgar feels that "There's something that works almost instinctively," while Raphaëlle explains that "We don't need to look at each other, and we breathe together in a certain way. There's something very strong about it." Completing the programme are transcriptions of much-loved operatic arias from Dvorák's Rusalka and Korngold's Die tote Stadt, performed by Edgar and Jérémie
