"a young pianist to watch"
AllMusic | May 2008
"…profoundly communicative…" and "…wonderfully poignant…"
"The final movement [of Rachmaninov's 2nd Sonata], in Mr. Lovchinsky's hands, had a mercurial tension moving toward a red-blooded dynamism that was almost wild with abandon, the notes ricocheting from the keyboard. Or so it seemed except that it was understood that he always had the most exquisite control over his instrument."
The Southampton Press | April 27, 2006
"...mesmerizing and fiery…a magnificent talent…"
