“As a voyager of the keys, Raineri is courageous. He doesn’t shy away from risk in his drive towards dramatic moments.” Limelight Magazine, 2018

“His recital certainly revealed a brilliantly talented musician with a complete understanding of his chosen instrument, and an ability to perform varied repertoire with sensitive interpretation and immaculate delivery… Raineri has immaculately clean, neat finger action at all times, and both feet seem automatic in their control of dampers and pianissimo, with never a blurred harmonic… utter control of clarity at unrelenting pace. A brilliant recital.” Otago Times, 2016

“…he shone as a soloist of superb virtuosic skill and musicality, leaving the audience with an audible buzz.” Limelight Magazine, 2015

“…[Natalie] Clein and Raineri showed great chemistry throughout the four movements [of the Shostakovich Cello Sonata], no mean feat when they can’t have played together live many times before.” Limelight Magazine, 2017

“A born communicator…” The Australian, 2014

“Liszt’s Dante Sonata is so forbiddingly difficult to play that only a favoured few have the courage and ability to present it in public. And at his recital at the weekend, it was abundantly clear that Alex Raineri is one of that small band.” The West Australian, 2013

“…a curator and pianist of imagination and daring.” Classic Melbourne, 2016

“Clarity and expressiveness were to the fore and it was remarkable how well the subtlety of his playing throughout the whole program could be heard…” Classic Melbourne, 2015

“…prodigy, virtuoso AND impresario.” St Kilda News, 2016

“Raineri showed superlative technique and sustained brilliance of tone and dynamic, with some gutsy left-hand and thrilling right-hand tremolos, throughout the programme.” Limelight Magazine, 2016

“On the last day of the festival Alex Raineri gave a gentle, persuasive, and beautiful account of Mozart’s great C major piano concerto, K 467…” Australian Stage, 2016

“…pianist Alex Raineri flawlessly recites some of Mozart’s moving arias.” The Northern Star, 2017

“Pianist Alex Raineri and percussionist Angus Wilson gave a superlatively virtuosic and dramatic performance of the four movement work [Philippe Hurel’s Tombeau in memoriam Gerard Grisey], which is so brimming with challenges as to be virtually created to fail.” Partial Durations, 2015

“He’s going to be a great ambassador for Australia with his music.” Leah Purcell – ABC 7:30 Report, 2006
