With Giovincello, Edgar Moreau offers an energetic collection of well-known and rare concertos of the Baroque era, including the world premiere release of a concerto by Carlo Graziani. Only 20 years old when he recorded the album, the prodigiously talented French cellist brings breezy, youthful virtuosity to 18th-century works by Vivaldi, Haydn, and more. Giovincello (an affectionate Italian term for “young man”) proves that Moreau’s imagination, verve, and technical skill make him among the most promising cellists of his generation.
