"Alexander Tselyakov is, in a word, overwhelming. Just as at times it is difficult to believe one's eyes, here it was difficult to believe one's ears. What one was hearing was simply not possible. And it was not just a matter of an impeccable technique, but also of musicianship." - Steinway Society (USA)

"Tselyakov's musical inclinations and talents lie in the country of his birth." - The Washington Post

"What Alexander Tselyakov does at the piano would raise the roof of any concert hall... the way legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz used to do." - Winnipeg Press (Canada)

"Phenomenal Pianist" - Kitzinger Zeitung (Germany)

"Russian-born pianist Tselyakov is Canada's new man at the top." - Waterloo Chronicle (Canada)

"To describe him as amazing at the keyboard is only one of the many adjectives this writer could summon after listening to and viewing him..." - The Globe and Mail (Canada)

"The best kept secret in the Canadian piano world" - CBC Canada

"...represents for this writer the best aspect of Russian pianism and all its attributes... effectively synthesized the emotional balance of Artur Rubinstein and the more highly-strung febrile quality of Horowitz." - New York Concert Review

"Mastery of the large-scale performance [was] served by absolute technical security and great delicacy [and] freedom." - Musical Opinion , UK (September - October Issue, 2002)
