The recital at Wigmore Hall was reviewed by Robert Beattie, Seen and heard International:

“Kasparas Uinskas impresses at Wigmore Hall”

“There was breathtaking virtuosity in the galloping last movement and the coda was electrifying….[Chopin Sonata No 3 in B minor Op 58]”

“…The duple time exchanges between the hands in D flat major were played with a breathtaking sensitivity that was absolutely magical. [Brahms Sonata No. 3 in F minor Op 5]”

“In the brilliant F major coda, Uinskas showed the audience his amazing digital dexterity again bringing this great work to a thrilling conclusion. [Brahms Sonata No. 3 in F minor Op 5]”

“It was gratifying to see such an accomplished and emotionally mature performance of this highly sophisticated work [Brahms Sonata No. 3 in F minor Op 5] by such a young pianist.”
