Simon Le Duc ‘l’aîné’ - the elder - was principally a violinist, so known to distinguish him from the younger Le Duc, his brother Pierre, who was also a virtuoso violinist and music publisher. A contemporary of Mozart, he also died young, but achieved the directorship of the ‘Concerts spirituels’ in Paris in 1773, having previously performed as orchestral member and soloist. Leopold Mozart wrote ‘he plays well’ in his journeys through Paris in 1763-64, and praise from that stern figure was hard enough to come by. The Concerts spirituals was one of a number of influential orchestral societies, which provided a platform for new symphonic developments at home in France and from abroad, such as the Mannheim school. During the 1760s the Symphony as we know it today was still in a state of development, and Le Duc’s style seems to have absorbed Austrian and Bohemian styles into the current French fashions, amounting to quite an advanced form of the tonal idiom of Viennese classicism represented by composers like J. Haydn, J.C Bach, W.A. Mozart and the like.

The three Symphonies appeared separately in various anthologies printed by Pierre Le Duc’s publishing company. They each have the same instrumentation of two flutes, two horns and strings. The lack of oboes makes for a nicely rounded orchestral sound, which is supplemented by La Stagione Frankfurt with unobtrusive continuo parts on fortepiano, and a doubling of the bass line with bassoon in the tutti passages. ‘Sturm und Drang’ is a strong element in these pieces, with expressive slow movements and plenty of energetic and witty playing for the outer sections – including an opening wake-up call which may blow your socks off.
