HarrisonParrott have been signing them wholesale this summer. First Thibaudet from IMG, then Perianes from ICA. Now they’ve got for François Leleux, an oboist who’s developing a career as conductor.

He’s married to another HP artist, Lisa Batiashvili.

  • Francois Leleux is the best oboist I’ve ever heard. Would be a shame to see him lost to conducting. He should at least wait, like most conductors, until he can’t play anymore.

  • Conducting is the way to go for fame and mula. The oboe has the most pitiful solo repertoire outside of baroque music. Playing premieres of oboe and violin concertos is a niche market that they probably have exhausted… There is an adage from baseball that I believe works here
    : chicks dig the long ball…and conductor, too
