Edgar Moreau, Raphaëlle Moreau, David Moreau, and Jérémie Moreau play Rachmaninov, Handel, and Beethoven Concert behind closed doors

About

Led by renowned virtuoso cellist Edgar, the astonishingly musical Moreau family takes the stage at the Fondation Singer-Polignac for a spirited century-spanning soirée! Edgar, Raphaëlle, David, and Jérémie Moreau kick off their G-minor gala with the unsettling melancholy of Rachmaninov’s Trio élégiaque No. 1 before turning to the delicate melodies and tumultuous arpeggios of Handel’s Passacaglia (in Halvorsen's arrangement). The multitalented family orchestra then ends the evening in high style with Beethoven’s beloved Cello Sonata No. 2.
