One of the great oboists of our time, François Leleux, joins the SSO for a breezy program with a French theme.  And this multi-talented and charismatic musician will be playing oboe, its low-voiced cousin the cor anglais, and conducting! He’s chosen a brilliant oboe ‘concerto’ by Hummel (a contemporary of Beethoven) and a new arrangement for cor anglais of Debussy’s sublime saxophone rhapsody. These two solo pieces are framed by the sheer lyrical beauty of Fauré’s music for Maeterlinck’s play Pelléas et Mélisande (famous for its rippling Sicilienne) and the youthful exuberance of Bizet’s Symphony in C. A concert to leave you smiling!
