"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

"...a brilliant young musician who presents with enthralling musicianship and interpretation, not only through the hands and fingers, but with noticeably everchanging subtle control of both soft and damper pedals.” Otago Times, 2019 

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

"The most impressive aspect of this year’s Brisbane Music Festival was the central performer’s ability (Alex Raineri—also the artistic director of the festival), to not only curate this month-long event of music concerts, but to perform its entire piano oeuvre, with music ranging from well-known classics to just-written compositions.” Brisbane Stage, 2019 

“...[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

"...pianist Alex Raineri stole the show. Increasingly, his own original approaches permeate the repertoire he champions and yet he is faithful to each composer’s style ... Raineri’s flexing rhythmical flair was demonstrated to advantage in his lovingly shaped, dazzling take on Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. He expertly matched and contrasted and teased and synchronised with the supportive orchestra…” Limelight Magazine, 2019 

“...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

"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

“...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

“Taking on the full weight of his undertaking, Brisbane Music Festival director Alex Raineri finished the 10-event series with a solo recital ... this young musician has his own specific insights and interpretative mannerisms, more than enough to have made this experience well worthwhile.” Clive O’Connell 2019
