"With his audacity and talent, the young artist renews classical music by pushing the frontiers of the genre with flying colors."

"His music is very simple and yet, even with the absence of vocals, entrancing, rhythmic and charging. Even when it is only the piano, he does not allow you to fall asleep, similarly to Nils Frahm and Yann Tiersen, who are nearby."

"The piece is an urgent composition for piano that experiments with layering and samples to give a fully textured and rich sound that steps outside of the tropes of the genre."

"This piano piece is anchored by an ostinato mid-range note pattern but not dominated by it–there’s a murky sense of change and uncertainty that course through the piece as the sections change. There’s a touch of John Luther Adams’ emotive clouds at the back half of the piece as well, making this a diverse, intriguing piece over the two and a half minutes of the work."

"That Alexander can balance a percussive instinct with, as the piece proceeds, a penchant for melodic flourishing is very much to his credit."

"Alexander's weapon of choice is the piano and much like a Nils Frahm, he finds ways to create a melodic dissonance and percussion that takes you on a emotional magic carpet ride."

"A lush atmospheric neo-classical piece, that engulfs with its mesmerizing melody & somehow rivets you so that you might think ‘oh, how did i get in this situation, will someone untie me?’"
