Leonard Weiss


Weiss is becoming quite the concerto conductor, being ever watchful of the soloist and letting the orchestra take the lead when called... the Adagio finished brilliantly, Weiss took the orchestra through a slow fade to nothing.
Limelight Magazine, 17 June 2019

A stellar concert... Leonard Weiss and his reinvigorated NCO [are] a force to be reckoned with.
CityNews, 8 April 2018

Sondheim's magnificent score [Sweeney Todd] receives excellent treatment here from Leonard Weiss and the orchestra, sweeping the audience along.
