"We had Rudolf last night and he was outstanding. My audience was so happy with his performance. He is an exceptional pianist, playing with ease and perfection. He is also very talented in mixing his [other music] with his pieces. We enjoyed his humor, his knowledge of the great composers and his wonderful rapport with the audience."Becky

"Rudolf is a very versatile performer with exceptional control of the piano. He switches easily form a serious classical sound to the light and entertaining moods of Gershwin. Rudolf is just plain fun to watch. He has a wonderful ability to relate to the audience. Each piece offers great dynamic scale – the audience was entranced by the sudden contrasts: dramatic at break-neck speed then lyrical with a sensitive and romantic sound."Betsy Hardie

"Mr. Budginas performed in Alpena, MI on the evening of Wednesday October 21, 2009. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! He is a very skilled pianist and performed classical music with great precision and depth. He was also a great entertainer and kept the audience involved throughout the concert. I was also impressed with the knowledge he was willing and able to share regarding the classical music and its marriage with current music genre."Bruce Connon

"WOW! What a way to start off our season. It (Rudolf Budginas) was a fantastic concert and I heard nothing but positive comments. What a talent!"C. Morrison

"The key to audiences returning again and again to hear Rudolf’s concerts is his extremely high level of artistry, his enthusiastic style and his ability to engage audiences. It’s hard to understand how one person and one piano can fill a theater with the energy of a big band, a symphony and a rock band all at the same time!"Connie O’Henley

Most of all, he gave 200% throughout the entire concert. He taught us so much about classical music with such obvious joy."Ernest

One of the remarkable aspects of this performer is his ability to move so smoothly from witty raconteur to consummate musician. When Budginas is playing the piano, he is completely involved – intense, precise, flamboyant – everything one expects from an Eastern European pianist trained at the Moscow Conservatory.
