Petcu Colan’s Rising Star performance was memorable no less for the breadth of technique than for the comparable range of emotion, expression and mood.

Andrew Johnstone, Irish Times, - NCH Rising Star Recital 2015

With overlapping rhythms, this drum solo becomes more and more frenetic as it progresses and has Crash's ambidextrous Alex Petcu no less frenzied.

Pat O'Kelly, Irish Independent, - Crash Ensemble, New Music Dublin festival, 2014

Alex Petcu sitting amid a barrage of percussion added brilliant crash, bang, wallop to Thomas Adés’ rich and vivid score.
