"Krichels playing sparkles with youthful fire, risk-taking and a joy of skill. [...] There is no question that the pianist is a true performer who can combine intimate caution in concert with daredevil access.”"
"This is an intelligently combined, varied mixture of cantabile and brilliant piano pieces, a mixture of simple intimacy and virtuosic emotions. [...] His excellent technique allows him to sound completely unagitated and natural. [...] Krichel is able to sing on the piano. [...] This is romanticism from today's point of view: touching without being kitschy, moving without false tears, also gripping and dramatic when the music requires it. [...] Alexander Krichel plays clearly and without exaggerated rubati, with well-dosed use of pedal. [...] [His] debut CD Frühlingsnacht is a pleasure to listen to from beginning to end and promises a sequel."
"So young and already so mature: this is the impression one gets involuntarily when listening to this CD by Alexander Krichel. Krichel is a piano artist with eminent technique and a great deal of taste. (...) For all his maturity, Krichel's piano poetry has something fresh, unconsumed, contemporary. One can only marvel at the quality. To merely call this young pianist a talent would be an understatement."
