* From a review of Sgouros' live Rach 3:-
“At the end you do not know what was more striking, the spiritual maturity of this slender young man or his inexhaustible, one might almost say abnormal physical force with which he hammers the staccato in the keys - a veritable hurricane unleashed - the agility of his fingers in the sparkling runs and arpeggios, the fantastically precise grip in the prestissimo chords or the quirky, picturesque phrasing with which Sgouros can freely express extra emotions.”

„Am Ende weiss man nicht, was mehr frappierte, die geistige Reife dieses schlanken Jünglings oder dessen schier unerschöpfliche, fast möchte man sagen abnorme physische Kraft, mit der er die Staccati in die Tasten hämmert und Orkans entfesselt, die Gelenkigkeit seiner Finger in den perlenden Läufen und Arpeggien, die traumhaft präzise Griffsicherheit in den Prestissimo-Akkordballungen oder die erregenden skurrilen, pittoresken Phrasierungsfloskeln, mit denen Sgouros zusätzliche Emotionen freiwerden lässt.“
- Wolfgang Eschmann (Rhein-Zeitung)
