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.

Declan Townsend, Irish Examiner, - Crawford Summer Lunchtime Concert Series
