Edgar Moreau cello; Pierre-Yves Hodique piano

Beethoven, Shostakovich, Poulenc and more


  • Edgar Moreau cello
  • Pierre-Yves Hodique piano

The four-year-old Edgar Moreau fell in love with the cello when he heard a girl playing the instrument in an antique shop he was visiting with his father. The young Parisian, born in 1994, received his first lessons soon after and made prodigious progress, entering the Paris Conservatoire at the age of 13 and winning the prestigious Rostropovich Cello Competition two years later.

He makes a welcome return to Wigmore Hall with a programme that includes three contrasting cello sonatas and a trio of exquisite salon pieces for cello and piano.
