Debussy Clair de lune (arrangement by André Caplet)
Kancheli Childhood revisited, for oboe, piano, bass guitar and strings
Debussy Rhapsodie (arrangement by Gilles Silvestrini for English horn and orchestra)
Bizet Symphonie No. 1
As performer and conductor, François Leleux has composed a programme in which works seem to echo one another. The orchestral version of Debussy’s Clair de lune is still marked by the Romantic aesthetic. We are at the gates of night. Oboist and composer Gilles Silvestrini has arranged Debussy’s Rhapsody, intended for saxophone, with an introduction marked “Dreamily slow”. Virtuosity is never far from intense poetry and irresistible charm. Giya Kancheli’s Childhood Revisited celebrates childhood with unexpected associations of timbres. For the Georgian composer, the expression of beauty is intimately associated with sorrow. Composed when he was seventeen, Bizet’s Symphony in C is a masterpiece, whose rhythms and colours foreshadow his opera Carmen.
