Ludwigshaffen (Germany):
“It is an extraordinary pianist, it’s possible to imagine that there are two pianists playing Stravinsky “Petroushka”. This unique Russian Eugueny Starodoubtsev undoubtedly is one of young rising stars, painter of the piano, choreograph of the keyboard…” (December 2005, Gerda Kova).

Amsterdam (Netherlands):
“The young Russian pianist Evgeny Starodubtsev astounded in the unplayable Pianosonate op.12 (1922). Here sounded, the avant-gardistic Shostakovich in the energic and exciting Russian ‘Roaring Twenties’, moving between browbeating and sensitive”, (NRC 26 September 2006, Kasper Jansen).

Ferrol (Spain):
“Russian Evgeni Starodubtsev became a grand triumpher of the evening… His interpretation of Rachmaninov piano concerto No.2 conquered the jury…” (November 2007)

A Coruña (Spain):
“Starodubtsev use a very rich timbres game that make grow the scores until amazing limit…” (March 2008)

“It was somehow not surprising to me that the Russian pianist Evgeny Starodubtsev, whose playing I did not know, turned out to be such an accomplished and probing artist… An impressive recording.” (New York Times, December 2011, Anthony Tommasini)
