It was before being hailed 12 years later by the “Instrumental Revelation” of the Victories of Classical Music 2009. It must be said that his entire career, he owes it to the pistons.

And for good reason: he is one of the greatest French trumpeters.

Romain Leleu

will have received, during his young career, the 1st Prize with honors at the National Conservatory of Music in Paris, and then the Chamber Music Prize with unanimous honors.

Today, the older brother of tuba player Thomas Leleu performs all over the world.

He moves happily from the baroque to the contemporary, and he inspires contemporary composers, such as Baptiste Trotignon who composed “Move” for him, a concerto for trumpet and orchestra.

“Move” is also the title of his new album.

A tribute to the big names in film music, Ennio Morricone, Georges Delerue, Michel Legrand or Nino Rota.
