Tanglewood Festival

French oboist François Leleux, who cast himself prominently in four pieces… And when he was playing, he was unmistakably the force majeure, the star of the show

“What was the glue that held this Tanglewood program together?… It didn’t take long — no longer than the opening number, the Saint-Saëns Oboe Sonata — to solve the puzzle. The answer: French oboist François Leleux, who cast himself prominently in four pieces… And when he was playing, he was unmistakably the force majeure, the star of the show.” (Berkshire Eagle, July 2016)
