"Exceptionally fine violinist and musician. His Carnegie-Hall recital was on a high musical level with admirable technic and beautiful tone."
New York Times

"It is his sovereignty and the perfect ensemble-play, as well as the mastering: the ideal choice of tempo, the tone-balance,  and a beautiful tone. A ravishing recording."
Hi-Fi Stereophony

"He knows what he wants and how to obtain it. Every phrase has its special meaning, every nuance its weight. His way of playing is free supple and clear. The quiet and exciting moments are proportioned with adroitness. Mr. Maté sings with a touching lyricism and constructs his passages with premeditation and intelligence. With him the music lives, it sings and moves, it transcends the virtuosity."
Le Soir, Brussels

"He is a master of his instrument, and is very sensitive. Thus we have heard a beautiful Mozart-play with captivating cadenzas."
Salzburger Volksblatt

"Sparkles were flying at this recital.  It was however not a superficial fire, but an artistically mastered ardour.  There were moments of intimate music-making.  This evening was a musical event."
Augsburger Allgemeine

"Incredible facility!"
Nice Matin

"Mr. Maté has played  the Vieuxtemps concerto in a stupefying waywith an exceptionally warm tone.  What brilliant martellés !  He possesses all the qualities to be an international star."
Nieuw Utrecht Dagblad

"His unassuming stage presence is a pleasure to observe, but it is his unerring intonation, excellent technic and beautiful sound that stamps him, as a future headliner."
Globe Democrat, St. Louis

"He is not only a virtuoso; he is a magician.  He is soaring in inexhaustible nuances, full of sensitivity and passion. Le Provencal, Luberon Music Festival A very good interpretation, very impressing."
La Presse,  Montreal

"A first class production, both technically and musically. Hi-Fi Stereophonie, Germany An internationally first class violinist and musician."
String Magazine, Tokyo
