"Sergio Monteiro is an artist with extraordinary creativity and energy. When he starts playing, music comes to life. His love for music is very strong and passionate, and music loves him in return. His pianism is brilliant, extremely generous, inspired and particularly interesting. It is a pure joy and very stimulating."
Martha Argerich

"An extraordinary prize winner of Martha's Competition. Wonderful sound. Spanish Music will be something else in his magnificent repertoire" - Alicia de Larrocha

"The Brazilian-born pianist, Sergio Monteiro, introduces judicious rubati, as the composer would no doubt welcomed and possessed with a formidable technique, he has that innate feel for the Liszt era. " - David's Review Corner

"The three musicians from Turmalin trio didn't leave anything expressionless during the varied programs in Ahlen. Sergio Monteiro played the freshly renovated Steinway with incredible brilliance and transparency...I have rarely experienced Mozart played so transparently and emotionally, like this  evening " - Ahlen Nachrichten

"The young prizewinning Brazilian pianist Sergio Monteiro must have beaten the record for the sheer number of notes played in a concert lasting little more than an hour. But his performance also demonstrated razor-sharp sensitivity in nailing down the precise persona of every piece while revealing the evocative, dream-like state of mind common to them all." - The Washington Post

"It was precisely Monteiro who achieved the best pianistic execution of the evening, not only for the clarity of his execution, but also for the accuracy he offered the work of Bela Bartok from an interpretive point of view. The pianist was able to show in its total splendor the wide range of sonorities Bartok entrusted to the piano, from the most delicate to the most percussive, but at all times involved in a profound discourse, suggestive and with enormous variety of nuances." - La Nacion, Buenos Aires
