"...Ce concert avait vraiment tout: originalité et audace du programme, grandeur des interprétations, méticulosité de la préparation musicale. De la musique dans toute sa splendeur, sans effets, sans gestes gratuits, mais touchant à la vérité et à la vraie grandeur."

"Leonard is a formidable presence. She is tall, maintains near perfect posture on the podium and conducts with an athletic muscular style (...) Here,the soloist was Jessica Linnebach. What a near perfect match she was for this work, together with Leonard's conducting and our TBSO. The second movement, the Adagio, was faultless, and here is where Leonard's conducting revealed her quiet attention to gentle details and support of the soloist.:"
Michael Sobota, The Chronicle Journal, January 21 2017
"Left hand lifted, directing, pulling or calming, her baton punctuated the air skillfully, calling each section to aspire to specific peaks. Hers were almost ballet-like gestures as the last note was caressed or captured with a single grand movement."
Hugh Kruzel, Northern Life, February 2016
