Paul Griffiths wrote in New York Times on November 5, 2002: "..Maxim Mogilevsky's performance of the 10th Sonata(Scriabin) was pure ravishment, his fingers executing butterfly dances on the keys, as if he were making love to the instrument, and indeed to his audience. This was the point to which the whole program had been leading, at which auditory pleasure became almost erotic...But there was more. For a grand finale, Mr. Toradze came onto the platform to join two of his colleagues, Mr. Mogilevsky and Ms. Smolina, in a three-piano arrangement of ''Prometheus'' and to demonstrate qualities of power and convulsive attack that were inimitable."
