Edgar Moreau salutes his family heritage and highlights landmarks in his artistic development with Transmission – music by Ernest Bloch, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Max Bruch, and Maurice Ravel, recorded with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra and its chief conductor Michael Sanderling. Moreau’s mother is of Polish-Jewish extraction and all five works on the album have a connection with Jewish culture. The largest work on the program is Bloch’s Schelomo, which Moreau describes as “a majestic meeting of concerto and symphony, rich and colorful in its orchestration and full of contrasts.”
