Cellist Edgar Moreau and his siblings Raphaëlle (violin), David (violin), and Jérémie (piano) play an excerpt from the third movement of Korngold's Suite Op. 23, featured on their album A Family Affair. Discover: https://w.lnk.to/afaLY

At the 1930 premiere of Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Suite Op. 23 for 2 violins, cello & piano left hand, the pianist was the suite’s dedicatee, Paul Wittgenstein, who, having lost his right hand in World War 1, commissioned music from a number of major composers.

The Moreau siblings are accustomed to playing together in works for two or three instruments, but, as David points out, "Two violins, piano, and cello is an unusual combination. These are wonderful pieces that are rarely played, so this is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on them."
