Petcu Colan’s Rising Star performance was memorable no less for the breadth of technique than for the comparable range of emotion, expression and mood.

Andrew Johnstone, Irish Times, - NCH Rising Star Recital


With overlapping rhythms, this drum solo becomes more and more frenetic as it progresses and has Crash's ambidextrous Alex Petcu no less frenzied.

Pat O'Kelly, Irish Independent, - Crash Ensemble, New Music Dublin festival, 2014


Petcu-Colan's musicianship on marimba and vibraphone was spellbinding.

Dick O'Riordan, Sunday Business Post, - Irish Freemasons Young Musician of the Year competition, 2013


Assured technique, mature musicianship, a varied programme and a communicative stage presence ensured that Alex Petcu-Colan charmed his audience.
