AN EVENING WITH FRANCOIS LELEUX: Thursday 19 January, 7.30pm at The Queen’s Hall
François Leleux Conductor / Oboe
Gripping drama and high emotion in deeply romantic music – in the company of inspirational French oboist and conductor François Leleux, a regular and much-loved SCO collaborator.
A visionary teacher, and a fighter for women’s rights, Louise Farrenc was one of the most influential figures in 19th century French music. Her bold, energetic Third Symphony launches Leleux’s concert with astonishing power and brilliance, before colourful instrumental reimaginings of Mendelssohn’s delicate piano pieces Songs without Words, and all the adventure of his dramatic trip to the Scottish isle of Staffa in the ‘Hebrides’ Overture.
Leleux closes this vibrant concert with the teenage Schubert’s compelling ‘Tragic’ Symphony, shot through with all the turbulence and exuberance of youth.
