" ... one of the most thrilling performances of the competition, that of the Sonata in F minor Op 57, ‘Appassionata', given by Alexander Panfilov…   Looming large over the instrument, Alexander Panfilov displayed a delicacy and control that infused his reading of Op 57 with unusual clarity, precision and expressionistic power, a reading which did not pull back at the galvanic unleashing of fortissimo outbursts yet also valued the emphasis of local gesture and motif." - Malcolm Miller.

"To cap the evening, Russian pianist Alexander Panfilov performed Prokofiev writ large. He has technique and musical understanding of someone much, much older and farther along life's musical path. He also has the strength of imagination and stage presence to make for a powerful, dynamic and always fascinating performance. Having seen him perform several times now, I am convinced that Alexander has the potential for a major performing career. He's that good." - Jeffrey James, Editor, International Composer.
