Gounod Petite Symphonie

Release date: May 2020

Francois Leleux, SCO Wind Soloists

Leleux is particularly suited to performing Gounod’s Petite Symphonie, which was written for nine of the finest wind players in Paris. Directing from the oboe, Leleux joins the SCO section principals as they demonstrate the strength of their chamber music instincts in a performance which sparkles with personality and individuality.

BBC Music Magazine 5 *

“It bubbles along with infectious delight in the SCO’s hands “

Gramophone 5*

“ ..there’s a real sense of give and take among the instrumentalists here, in a performance of fastidious elegance and, once again, great refinement…”

“The gem here is the little symphony composer by Charles Gounod. Leleux leads the renowned winds of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.“
