VSPAC | TADEUSZ DOMANOWSKI
Weill Recial Hall at Carnegie Hall (New York, March 10, 2013): „[...] He has excellent technical facility at his disposal, combined with a good stylistic sense and strong stage presence. [...] Though it is hard to add to the performance history of a piece like this, with Rubinstein, Argerich, and countless other greats (followed by Kissin, Yundi Li, and more), Mr. Domanowski undoubtedly has the potential to add his own special stamp. I look forward to hearing him again.” - New York Concert Review, Rorianne Schrade
