Larger-than-life French oboist François Leleux brings his enormous charisma and abundant skills to a sunny chamber recital alongside SCO Principal Players. He is soloist in Mozart’s bright and cheerful Oboe Quartet, and the programme also includes two rarely heard pieces for unusual ensembles: Prokofiev’s circus-style Quintet for oboe, clarinet, violin, viola and double bass; and one of Rossini’s sparkling quartets for two violins, viola and bass – written, remarkably, when the composer was only twelve.
Single tickets on sale at the Queen's Hall box office from Thursday 10 May.
François Leleux is a special featured artist with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in the 2018/19 Season appearing as a Conductor / Soloist and in a Chamber Concert. He is renowned for bringing “bigger-than life personality” to his performances and his pre-eminence as an oboist is internationally recognised.
