Not every oboist is described as “larger than life” – but then not every oboist, like François Leleux, is also a brilliantly charismatic conductor! We’ll get to hear his fabulous playing in music by Haydn and Debussy, and savour his wit and warmth in Brahms’s Haydn Variations and Bizet’s sunlit Symphony in C as well as a new version of Debussy’s Saxophone Rhapsody. In Town Hall Birmingham, it’ll feel close enough to touch.
