    «A distinguished performance of technique, an enviable accomplishment: firm who work, very beautiful sonority, velvety and ample, richly colored with effects and blended tonality. Mouradian`s capacities are obviously highly positive in stylistic justice equidistant from any vestiges whatsoever of bad taste and of a certain «indifference» which some might  confuse the seriousness»

      «In the interpretation of fantasy pieces Schumann Mr. Mouradian presented also himself  ideal in relation to the design of the sentence,  with tender expression, slightly rough, fast and fleeting».
