"Pianist Albin Axelsson interpreted the at times staggering virtuoso, at times seductive romantic solo part of Rachmaninoff's second piano concerto, a concerto that requires a piano lion. (…) The pianists agile fingers went like a wildfire over the keyboard. (…) (the concert ended with) Loud applause for an impressive young promising pianist." - Bengt Hultman, Västerbottens-Kuriren
