"This young pianist has everything to become a great artist: virtuosity, mastery, sensitivity,inspiration. But in addition he possesses a sort of poetry of expression and approach which touched us from the beginning to the end of the recital.....In his interpretation of a Mozart Sonata, he displayed a sensitivity which recalled the pianist to whom he owes so much, Clara Haskil."

André Peyregne, Nice Matin, 27th February 2001
