“Leonardi plays different flutes and uses them effectively, especially the bass flute. He gets a big sound from it.” – Bernie Koenig, Cadence Magazine

“Interactions joyful and artistic, with plenty of space and a talent for spontaneous melodies.” – Steve Holtje, Culture Catch

“Leonardi mostra una padronanza dello strumento a tutto tondo, non solo per l’ampiezza del repertorio tecnico tipico del flauto, ma per l’uso assolutamente interattivo che ne fa, scevro dal virtuosismo e con un suono dolce e vellutato, preciso e controllatissimo.” – Antonio Terzo, JazzColours
