Edgar Moreau, “the Rising Star of the French Cello”

“The rising star of the French cello,” 22-year-old cellist Edgar Moreau consistently captivates audiences with his effortless virtuosity and dynamic performances (Le Figaro Magazine).  Mr. Moreau won First Prize in the 2014 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, was awarded six concert prizes at the YCA Auditions, and is recipient of the Florence Gould Foundation Fellowship of YCA.  He has been selected as one of the European Concert Hall Organization’s 2016-2017 Rising Stars, and will embark upon a European tour of more than a dozen major concert halls including Barbican, Concertgebouw and Musikverein. His album of Baroque concertos was released last season on the Warner Classics label. At the 2016 Echo Klassik awards, Edgar received the Prize for Newcomer for his CD release Giovincello on Erato (Warner Classics).
