"Yerzhanov demonstrated that happy combination of digital prowess and refined temperament Goethe called "Truth and Poetry"... More than one auditor could aptly apply the maxim given by Schnabel, "You are not a pianist; you are a musician!"with no less authority to Mr. Yerzhanov."
"The powerful dynamism and sheer inexhaustible energy with which he captivates his audiences bely his slender frame; he is without doubt a rare phenomenon among pianists"
