Named an ‘instrumental soloist revelation’ by the Victoires de la Musique, French trumpeter Romain Leleu makes his UK debut in the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, showcasing a diverse repertoire ranging from Baroque concertos to 21st century contemporary.
As a soloist he performs alongside various French and international orchestras, and as a chamber musician he often shares the stage with notable musicians like Thierry Escaich, Adam Laloum, François Dumont, Ibrahim Maalouf and Frank Braley.
Trained in the traditional French trumpet school, Romain Leleu is an adventurous musician, always exploring new musical realms. He has premiered new works by contemporary composers including Martin Matalon, Philippe Hersant, Karol Beffa and Jean-Baptiste Robin. In 2010, with the aim of exploring newly transcribed pieces of music, he created his audacious and spontaneous Ensemble Convergences – a string quintet and trumpet – with members of some of the finest French orchestras.
For this performance, Romain will be accompanied by François Dumont on piano.
‘The Concertos are marvellously played, with Leleu showing that he has the bravura of a flautist but can be remarkably stylish too.’
