“Mantautas Katinas combines remarkable technique with a passionate temperament. He also deserves praise for his contribution to the revival of Nicolai Medtner’s works.”


Anne Queffelec, Piano en Saintonge Festival 2012




“Katinas possesses a distinct, individual pianistic style, together with an ability to reveal new ideas in different composers and to attract listeners' attention in a natural way.”


“Muzikos Barai”, Lithuanian magazine of the art and science of music, No. 9-10, 2013





“Subtle, and gifted with undoubted talent, this young man has grown up in every way: although still very young, he is a mature performer. A thoughtful, profound, forceful pianist, able to compel the attention of listeners from the first to the last note he plays. The programme he chose to perform that evening – Chopin Sonata No. 2 in B-flat minor, Liszt Rapsodie Espagnole and Rachmaninoff Étude-Tableau in E-flat minor, Op. 39 No. 5 – spoke of his versatility, excellent sound quality and expressive phrasing, and the concept underpinning his approach.”


“Nemunas”, Lithuanian weekly, 15.05.2008
