Still in his early twenties, French cellist Edgar Moreau is already making his mark with the exuberant virtuosity of his playing. Here he joins the Baroque ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro for a programme focusing on 18th-century concertos.

Charged with all the rhetorical and emotional intensity of opera arias, these wonderfully expressive and colourful works range from the fretful melancholy of Vivaldi's Cello Concerto in A minor to the poised elegance of Boccherini's Concerto in D major and the irrepressible joy of Platti's Concerto in D major.
