……People were blown away by Utsav. Age aside, he is oozing with talent and it’s a joy to behold him caressing a piano like the way he does…..Jackie Leahy, music critic & organiser of One World Music evening.

……Utsav’s stronghold over Indian Raags was evident from his mature performance. The superb finale piece was complete music to the ears...The Asian Age.

..his fingers move across the keyboard as effortlessly as a ballet dancer would traipse across the stage….Mail Today.

…..When Utsav Lal touches the keys of the piano, he not only creates wonderful music, but touches many hearts…..Times of India.

…..The sangat of tabla and piano kept the audiences gripped to their seats and left them screaming for more. During the jugalbandi portions in the concert, the two instruments blended in a true form conceiving musical harmony. There were moments when the audiences stood and applauded amid the rendition of ragas to appreciate the works of the young wizards. When 16 year old Utsav Lal plays the piano, he touches many hearts with his soothing music………..Radio & Music review.
