”Sourikova has an impressive range of technique, and both a lyric and a dramatic sense of structure, taking the listener on a journey from lyrical impressionism and strange beauty through rough tossed energy and noise and then back again.” Phillip McNally - Cadence Magazine

”Sourikova is a pianist who deserves wider attention and who is clearly worth following. A great promise..” Stef Gijssels, Free Jazz, Netherlands

“An original thinker as a composer and pianist, constantly experimenting to maintain the audience's interest.” Jazz Dünyasi, Baku International Jazz Festival
