" 120 minutes d’excellence […] ce fut un récital de haut niveau. Ouvert sur une sonate de J-S Bach et s’achevant sur l’étourdissant Rondo Capriccioso de Camille Saint-Saëns […] D’une étonnante virtuosité, l’interprétation de chacune de ces pièces fut un moment de bonheur. "
- La Tribune
" […] avec l’archet parfois bondissant d’allégresse, parfois glissant d’une langoureuse mélancolie ou ondulant nerveusement sur les cordes, il a fait voyager le public dans les aigus, les pizzicatos, les sons en harmoniques et ce dans un bel éclat de couleurs.”
