OUT NOW | VC Artist Edgar Moreau's Newest Album: "Transmission"
Transmission is VC Artist Edgar Moreau's musical autobiography that reflects on his family heritage and highlights landmarks in his artistic development. Inspired and rooted in different aspects of Jewish life, religion, and culture, the new album features works by Bloch, Korngold, Bruch, and Ravel.
“Transmission is something I wanted to do for a long time,” Moreau explains. “I feel very close to Jewish composers in general because I am Jewish.”
The repertoire on Transmission brings a "prayerful" atmosphere that invites intimacy and introspective clarity — which is especially evident in Bloch's three short pieces comprising From Jewish Life.
Korngold’s Cello Concerto, which Moreau calls “a wonderful piece,” explores his virtuosity. Korngold was driven from Europe by the rise of Nazism, and this work reflects the composer's time in exile in Hollywood.
Moreau speaks of the “pureness” he finds in many of these pieces, referring to their association with his early studies when he was discovering this music for the first time. “I try to maintain the very natural way this music first spoke to me—when it was just between me and the score and the composer.”
