Two years later she made her solo debut with the Leningrad Symphony Orchestra in St Petersburg. Leschenko works with orchestras around the world including Camerata Salzburg, Hallé, London Mozart Players, Scottish Chamber, Bournemouth Symphony, Britten Sinfonia, Bern Symphony, Russian National, I Pomeriggi Musicali in Milan, Orquesta de Euskadi and Australian Chamber Orchestra.
