AN EVENING WITH FRANÇOIS LELEUX
François Leleux Conductor/Oboe
FARRENC Symphony No 3 in G minor
MENDELSSOHN arr TARKMANN Lieder ohne Worte
MENDELSSOHN Overture, ‘The Hebrides’
SCHUBERT Symphony No 4 in C minor ‘Tragic’
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.
