“He simply had everything: leaps, runs, repetitions, dynamic contrasts, lines of expression – nothing was ignored in his thrilling playing. Teo Gheorghiu is a huge talent. And as recipient of the Beethoven-Ring he is a worthy representative of the series that started with names like Gustavo Dudamel, Julia Fischer and Lisa Batiashvili.” (General-Anzeiger Bonn)

“He showed himself to be a poetic storyteller” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)

“[An] altogether exhilarating performance.” (Martin Buzacott, Limelight Magazine)

"His touch on the keyboard is of blinding clarity. His differentiation of acoustic perspectives is astounding. His playing is regular and brilliant.” (Tribune de Geneve)

“Not yet 21, the Swiss-Canadian pianist Teo Gheorghiu brings youthful fire to Dvorák’s sublime Piano Quintet Op.81 with the Carmina Quartet … Gheorghiu and his fellow Swiss players display considerable charm and zest, particularly in the scherzo and finale.” (Stephen Pritchard, The Observer)

“Gheorghiu is a cerebral musician who brought out Baroque qualities in the figuration of this work that most pianists minimize in favor of its more outward romanticism. Gheorghiu's shaping of musical elements was carefully controlled over long arcing segments of the score and as one became accustomed to his conception of the piece it became increasingly convincing.” (The Hartford Courant)
