Schnittke album release on Onyx


For his third album for ONYX, together with pianist Peter Limonov, Leonard concludes his Russian trilogy, with works by Alfred Schnittke. This follows his previous releases of music by earlier 20th century composers; Rachmaninov, Kabalevsky, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich. The new album also includes a composition of his own.

BBC New Generation Artist


Over his two-year tenure as BBC New Generation Artsit, Leonard performed and recorded 13 cello concertos with all five BBC orchestras, made 6 recordings at the Maida Vale Studios with various collaborators, gave 3 consecutive appearances at the BBC Proms, and gave recitals at the Wigrmore Hall, Sage Gateshead, and Cheltenham Festival. As part of a continuing relationship with the BBC Philharmonic, he will be releasing two CDs of British 20th century cello concertos, including a new concerto written for him by Mark Simpson (2017).

In June 2016, Leonard will tour Latin America for four weeks. After recitals with Alexei Grynyuk in Lima and Quito, he will perform as a soloist with the Belo Horizonte Orchestra, the Bogotá Philharmonic, Medellin Philharmonic, and with his orchestra, the Orquesta Filarmonica de Bolivia, for their debut in La Paz.
