"His piano recitals have always aroused a keen interest. Oleksii was taught to play the piano in the traditions of Kyiv Piano School (a pupil of Nataliia Hrydnieva and Valerii Kozlov), he is an alumnus of the Royal Academy of Music in London, a musician who has had the status of "an independent artist" for over twenty years already.
Oleksii enchants the listener not only with his brilliant piano playing technique – it is hard to impress anyone with it these days – but with the depth and persuasiveness of the performer's interpretations, an ability to reflect upon the music and feel it keenly when playing the piano.
The sphere of his interests as a performer lies in the Classical Romantic tradition. He eagerly plays the compositions of the composers-pianists: Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Schumann, Lysenko, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev. Oleksii defines his credo in music in the following way: "Understanding that the pianist himself is responsible for the quality of how the compositions will sound appeals to me immensely."
