"Karpeyev's artistic maturity was palpable, and it shone through every bar of his closing item a commanding performance of Liszt's B minor Sonata." The Birmingham Post

"The grasp of large-scale structure, the huge dynamic and tonal range, and above all, the flood-tide of emotion that swept from first bar to last, all made this performance worthy in its own right of the First Prize Karpeyev was finally awarded." The Birmingham Post

"a pianist with athletic fingers, an ability to shape phrases without distorting the line, and a sensitivity that bodes well." www.classicalsource.com
