"Peter Katina is an ambitious and lively musician, with excellent technical preparation, who is able of pronounced stressing of the rhythmic pulsation even when the changing meter is present. He is evolving towards an ever closer link between the technique and deep expression. "Motivating and individualistic performance. Attractive style with captivating impression.” (Evaluation of the competition jury in Reinach Ag.)"
