Master of all musical styles
Australia, 1929

The Sydney Mail commented on his mastery of all the musical styles and enormous repertoire: "No pianist who has ever appeared in Sydney before has played so many pieces without a single repetition. At the eight recitals he performed 77 works, to which should be added a few things … which were played as encores ... He approaches every work with a seriousness of purpose and deeply felt appreciation which make for the highest in art ... Viewed from every aspect, Spivakovsky is one of the greatest and most versatile pianists who have visited Australia."
