• I was very impressed with Sasha's extraordinary performances. He is truly an amazingly gifted young harpist. I am sure he will have a wonderful future.

• It was nice to meet Sasha and I was very impressed with his young musical abilities and his stage manner.
Skaila Kanga
Head of Harp Studies,
Royal Academy of Music, London.

• I have to admit, that I have never heard anybody to play like he in his age. I have been really impressed by his talent... Without any moot - his talent should be shown to the whole harp world.
Jana Bouskova
Professor at the Prague Conservatory

• After listening to Alexander Boldachev, I say that I have been very impressed with his great temperament. Being so young, Sasha has already a very strong technique and a beautiful musicality that make him live deeply his music. I haven't doubt that he will be one of the great musicians of tomorrow and I wish him all the best success.
