For example Katharina Thalmann from the newspaper “” wrote: “The high point of the evening was the performance of the Prokofiev’s Second Piano Concerto by Maria Anikina. The level of skill, excitement and freedom shown by the soloist was extraordinary. To show these qualities on top of the technical and emotional challenges that this Concerto presents, is a huge achievement. But the soloist has even more: high sensitivity and creativity of interpretation”.
