Immerse yourself in the heady perfumes and scintillating colours of France, as François Leleux leads you through a rich collection of music from his native country, past and present.

Dazzling British soprano Carolyn Sampson is the soloist in Berlioz’s sensuous Les Nuits d’Été, six heavily scented songs of love, loss and longing, with all the sumptuousness of a summer evening.

Beforehand, Leleux takes in the ancient spirituality and sensuality of Debussy’s exquisite Danses, the infectious nonchalance of Gounod’s exuberant Petite Symphonie, and the bracing drama of contemporary composer Eric Tanguy’s effusive Incanto.
