"Dalibor Karvay has not been stagnating in the category of prodigys. He has been successfully developing his talent. Special conservatory studies and his decision to study abroad have enabled him to develop all his natural talents: technical precision, musical intelligence, memory, beautifully developed, gentle tone, and a sense for the construction of musical forms. He has a feel for stylistic elements of the performed piece and possesses a wide range of dynamic and expressive levels. This is always in combination with a high-quality sound and a clear structure. Karvay has been a great promise for Slovak interpreting art."
