François Leleux is one of the most passionate musicians performing today, and his much-loved concerts leading the SCO are sophisticated, intense and gloriously exuberant.
He’s joined by celebrated British soprano Carolyn Sampson for Berlioz’s vivid but rarely heard Crusades cantata Herminie – in which the composer first tried out the Symphonie fantastique’s most famous melody. Leleux translates singing into playing in his own witty oboe arrangements of arias from Mozart’s best-loved comic opera, alongside the gripping drama of the same composer’s Symphony No. 25 and exquisite fairytale evocations from Ravel.
