Leonardo Vordoni

Leonardo Vordoni


“Italian conductor Leonardo Vordoni gives a classy, understated interpretation of the score, capturing the transparency of Rossini’s orchestration with the utmost sophistication. He follows the singers, who play with the arias, which conveys a sense of freedom throughout the evening.” —Il Barbiere di Siviglia - Houston 2011: Theodore Bale, CultureMap Houston, October 23, 2011

“[‘La Bohème’] conducted with warmth and knowing breadth by Leonardo Vordoni made a fine evening. […] Vordoni fostered and sustained an impression of impetuous freshness of utterance ideal for ‘Bohème’.” —La Bohème - Santa Fe 2011: David Shengold, Opera, November 2011

“Chicago Opera Theater’s excellent cast and superb conductor lead Rossini’s static 'Moses' out of the desert.” “Leonardo Vordoni’s musical direction was faultless, the Italian conductor bringing lively tempos, idiomatic pacing, and attentive detailing of Rossini’s score with scrupulous balancing of ensembles and chorus throughout.” —Mosè in Egitto - Chicago 2010: Lawrence Johnson, Chicago Classical Review, April 18, 2010
