François Leleux returns to the BBC Proms
When Leleux last performed Strauss in the UK with the CBSO under Collon in 2009, the Birmingham Post wrote, “… [T]here were certainly wonders in François Leleux’ account with the CBSO of the autumnal, delicious Oboe Concerto by Richard Strauss. His phrasing was mellifluous, and as open-air as the composer’s beloved Bavarian Alps; …flourishes danced as though from panpipes, and he painted piquant shades of colour.”
The concert on 31 July is broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and for catch up for 30 days on iPlayer. François, Collon and Aurora also perform the same programme at Cambridge Summer Music on 29 July.
