A Person of Great Character. Interview with Mikhail Leontyev (SGI Quarterly / Soka Gakkai International Quarterly Magazine, No 59, Jan 2010, Japan)

Основной силой, объединившей большое количество исполнителей на сцене в единое содружество талантов, стал дирижёр Михаил Леонтьев. /.../ Михаил Леонтьев − лауреат четырёх Международных и Всероссийских конкурсов, гастролировал во многих странах мира... Дирижёр работает с развёрнутой во времени формой, и собрать в единое целое кантату «STABAT MATER» − подвиг с привлечением большого количества музыкантов, единомышленников. У маэстро это блестяще получилось! Он с большим уважением относится к музыкантам, и они ему отвечают тем же. Ведь основной задачей, по выражению выдающегося дирижёра современности Геннадия Рождественского, является умение дирижёра заставить музыкантов хотеть играть ещё лучше. Это умение было продемонстрировано М. Леонтьевым в работе с оркестром и хором над партитурами Й. Гайдна и К. Дженкинса. (Tatiana Danielyan, Vechernii Stavropol, 02.01.17, Russia, whole article)

... событие культурной жизни и города в целом. /.../ У М. Леонтьева множество титулов и наград, он дипломант V Международного конкурса дирижеров имени С. Прокофьева (Санкт-Петербург... 2008), победитель XV Международного конкурса дирижеров MIN-ON (Токио... 2009), победитель I Открытого конкурса дирижеров имени И. Мусина (... 2009). Был приглашенным дирижером Михайловского театра, ранее работал в Капелле Санкт-Петербурга. М. Л.: «Если по-другому посадить оркестр, звук изменится в любом случае... Мне хотелось как можно больше выдвинуть оркестр на авансцену. Поэтому с задних рядов все медные инструменты я постарался рассадить по бокам, чтобы они сидели поближе и не дули в уши деревянным духовым. /.../ Что касается струнных: виолончели теперь более повернуты деками к залу. Если они сидят сбоку, то их звук теряется. Как раз эта рассадка очень популярна везде: и в Европе, и в Азии.» (Elena Sipacheva, Gradus ad Parnassum, No 8, Dec 2011, Russia)

Klaaspärlimängu” avakontserdi sisustas Glasperlenspiel Sinfonietta /.../ noore Peterburi dirigendi Mihhail Leontjevi taktikepi all. Usun, et see kontsert lõi seniste Tartus toimunud festivalide publikurekordi. Kava oli huvitav. /.../ Täpse, kuid väljendusrikka žestiga Leontjev lasi Mozarti muusika võlul maksvusele pääseda. (Mart Jaanson, Sirp, 10.08.12, whole article)
