Thomas Leleu (tuba)

Thomas Leleu Sextet & Orquesta Sinfonica de Lara, Tarcisio Barreto Ceballos

As the winner of the Victoires de la Musique Classique award (the French equivalent of the Grammy Awards) in 2012 at the age of 24, named instrumental soloist 'Revelation of the Year', Thomas Leleu is the first tuba player to obtain this coveted distinction.

At only 27, he is already enjoying a remarkable career: known as the young international star of the tuba, his musicality and astonishing deftness make him a unique genius of his instrument. In his hands, the instrument takes on a contemporary shine, revealing an almost infinite range, a delicacy and complexity that have rejuvenated it. With his determination to break down the barriers between classic and contemporary music, his eclecticism and his free, fun approach to concert playing, he is the ideal emissary of his instrument.

This album is an accomplishment in the life of a young artist and foundational in the world of music - it may well mark a decisive turning point. Leleu, who has retained all of his love for the stage and his exhilarating force, has once again turned to composition, an activity for which he possesses true talent but that he had to put aside while working on his instrument.

In 2012, Leleu founded the Thomas Leleu Sextet and became a godfather of the youth development and social change organisation El-Sistema-France. He is the Melton Meinl/Weston Artist and ambassador for the Buffet Group of wind instruments. Working with the prestigious German instrument manufacturer, he helped develop the 2250 TL 'French Touch' tuba that he now plays.

The recording studio of the Welte firm on 5th Avenue with the organists Clarence Eddy, Samuel Atkinson Baldwin, Lynnwood Farnam, Richard Epstein & Edwin H. Lemare

The firm of M. Welte & Söhne maintained a branch in New York from 1865 until 1917 under the name of M. Welte & Sons. It had been established by Emil Welte (1841–1923, son of the company‘s founder); he lived in the USA permanently, only rarely visiting Freiburg. A recording studio with a grand piano for making piano recordings and a recording organ could be found at the best address on 5th Avenue. Piano recordings of the Welte firm were thus not only made in Freiburg im Breisgau from 1905 until 1932, but also in New York.

“the organ’s roll player mechanism provides us with two CDs of quite incredible testimony by organists whose playing was never captured by microphones” Choir & Organ, May 2015 *****

Tchaikovsky:

Countess's Scene (from Pique Dame)


Denise Scharley (mezzo)

With her unique mezzo contralto voice, Denise Scharley was able to make an impression in all the great roles of her repertoire. Admired by Francis Poulenc, Scharley remains in the opinion of many, unmatched to this day in the role of the Prioress in Les Dialogues des Carmelites.

She also had the temperament of a tragic actress as she demonstrates on this CD as Carmen, Charlotte from Werther (Massenet) and Dalila from Saint-Saens.

An interesting document of her most famous performances.

“Scharley's warm, firm mezzo pours forth over its whole range, shown well in 'Va! Laisse couler mes larmes' (Werther), for example…a fine voice it is, worthy of collecting.” International Record Review, March 2015
