"It's an intense musical delight to experience Jānis Liepiņš intricate and committed reading of the score."
"The conductor has found the right balance of the tempo and character. Janis Liepins feels the rhythm and tempo of this music very well and he doesn’t let the orchestra drift on their own."
"An important reason why everything sounded so good was definitely Janis Liepins. He conducted La Rondine in a very academic, flowing and precise manner."
