About François

François Leleux’s pre-eminence as an oboist is internationally recognised but over the last twenty years he has in parallel developed a significant reputation as conductor, and is now in demand on the podium both with and without oboe in hand. Leleux is regularly invited by the world’s leading orchestras, festivals and concert series, both as soloist and player/director with repertoire ranging from baroque to newly commissioned works.
