The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Lisa Batiashvili (violin), François Leleux (oboe)
Camerata Salzburg

Bold, go-it-alone and energetic. Among their many international authorities in the field, Camerata Salzburg proudly remember those Hungarian conductors who have directed or assisted the world-beating work of the ensemble since their formation in 1952: Sándor Végh, Géza Anda and András Schiff. The ensemble regularly gives concerts with François Leleux, indeed, they have recorded several joint albums together; for their appearance at the Liszt Academy, they are joined by the oboist-conductor’s wife, Georgian Lisa Batiashvili, thus allowing a completely authentic rendition of Georgian composer Giya Kancheli’s Chiaroscuro (2011). The work’s purposeful simplicity and novelty act as a counterpoint to popular creations by Mendelssohn and two 18th-century writers, Mozart and Lebrun.
