Thomas Leleu, Tubist, Wins the French Grammy

I have to hand it to the French, they are often first. In fashion, food, art, culture, and now the tuba. Thomas Leleu, a 23-year-old tubist from Lille just won the French equivalent to the Grammy’s (Victoires de la Musique Classique 2012) The award was “ Révélation soliste instrumental de l’année ” (which I think means Best New Instrumental Soloist of the Year), and it’s the first time it has been awarded to a tubist. Click here to view a clip from the show, including a performance of the first movement of Convergences by Jean-Phillipe Vanbeselaere. Félicitations Thomas!
