Performance Details

Whilst we are absolutely determined to return to the concert stage just as soon as possible, sadly it has become increasingly clear that we are not going to be able to perform our 20/21 Season programme as advertised. 
However, despite the current challenges, there is much that we are planning to present. Beginning in September, we will be undertaking our first ever series of streamed orchestral concerts, which will be free for you to enjoy.
To make sure you stay up to date with all the details of our reinvented performances, you can subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media (FacebookTwitterInstagramYouTube).  


Oboe Concerto in C K314 (21')
Legends, Op 59 (Selection) B122 (20’)
Violin Concerto (42')

FRANÇOIS LELEUX – Conductor / Oboe

An astonishingly expressive, charismatic oboist, François Leleux is also a conductor of rare insight, so it’s hardly surprising he’s such a well-loved and much-respected figure with SCO musicians and audiences alike.

He makes a welcome return in the company of Georgian-born Lisa Batiashvili – a powerful musical voice and commanding presence on world stages, who also happens to be Leleux’s wife – in Beethoven’s grand, groundbreaking Violin Concerto.

Leleux himself is soloist amid the bubbling brilliance of Mozart’s ebullient C major Oboe Concerto, and he takes on the dramatic storytelling in Dvořák’s Legends, full of the distinctive flavours of central Europe.

Digital editions of the programmes are now available for sale for £2 from These can be purchased and read online or downloaded the morning of the first concert of the week. We will then make these available free of charge the following Monday. 
Traditional printed programmes will still be on sale at the venue for £3.
