'Alexander Ullman did remarkable things in the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1. He heard the score with immense clarity and vision, and brought it to life as if the composer were watching over his shoulder. '

Huffington Post, Montréal Symphony Orchestra, June 2014

'He displayed a delicate touch, technical finesse and graceful phrasing. His affinity for the piece came through in assured, communicative playing from its bright, fleet passages through mysterious, yearning melodies and charming, playful diversions.'

New Jersey Symphony Orchestra in Trenton, October 2012

'Played brilliantly by the young British pianist Alexander Ullman... The orchestra, under Musical Director Miguel Harth-Bedoya, caught Ullman's every nuance and change of mood, thus unifying the performance. The famous slow movement…is wonderful in Ullman's hands. His legato touch made you forget that the piano is basically a percussion instrument.'

North West Texas Performing Arts review, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestr, November 2011

'His performance of the Chopin fourth Ballade will live in my mind’s ear for ever: every nuance perfectly judged, poised and placed...His sound is unique.'

Seen and Heard International, Pontino Festival Italy, 2010
