Jerry Dubins
Fanfare, November 2015

Leo has invested the libretto with a great deal of invigorating music, given his characters strong musical profiles and, to the extent possible, made them believable. …the singers are well matched, sing with good tone and pitch, and have a good sense of comedic timing. The production is expertly led and held together by conductor Antonio Greco.

This one is not just for 18th-century Italian opera specialists; it’s enjoyable all around and recommended to everyone. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

L’ambizione delusa is certainly worth listening to for anyone with an interest in the development of opera buffa in the half century before Mozart… The live recording is good, with an excellent cast, and it is unlikely that there will ever be a better—or another. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review
