Critics have hailed Adam Aleksander’s playing as having “rare finesse…gorgeous sonority and nimble fingers…generous of feeling, mood and tonal resources” (Cleveland Plain Dealer); “(Aleksander) is a consummate pianist…outstanding artist” (Miami Herald); having “phenomenal technique, which allows him to achieve extremely musical ends” (Byron Belt, Newshouse News Service); “…exquisite…subtlety and grace…fire and brimstone…rare depth and substance…introspective… exhilarating!” (Pat Leitch, Coral Gables Gazette), “...Aleksander gave a staggering display of his powers at the keyboard. These are among the most difficult piano pieces ever written... (he) produced a breathtaking barrage of double octaves, dangerous leaps and skips, and rapid runs and chords, all this done with the utmost control and poise. A wonderful performance.” (Michael Green, Artsmart, Durban, South Africa)
