"... his manner is highly individual. He goes his own way with scant regard for any prevailing trend I know of in pianism, he doesn't sound or play remotely like anyone else... Sgouros' talent is such that he makes his own rules. An audience is left with the option of accepting or rejecting them. There is no middle ground. And I embrace them, particularly in this era of stillborn ideas and performances."

- John Ardoin, Dallas Morning News
