The cleverness with which he learns new repertoire, the passion with which he plays in every concert, the skill which can only be gained with years of experience, and the spontaneity offered by a modern drive – this is what characterises French cellist Edgar Moreau, whose star already shone brightly at the age of 17, when he won silver at the International Tchaikovsky Competition. In his native France, the medal, despite it being a mere silver, was greeted with ovations, and the musician himself has said that it was second place, rather than winning, which opened the doors to so many concert stages.
