" When I heard Max’s performance, I was overwhelmed with positive emotions. Even at such young age he possesses the qualities of a great artists! The most beautiful part is that he retains astonishing technical skills and manages to combine those skills with his emotionality, passion, and creativity. "

Daniil Shafran

" Max Beitan is a classical cellist with a bright image and charismatic artistry. His performance is concentrated on classical music with the breadth and deep repertoire, as well as extravagant and virtuoso compositions.Max Beitan represents a new way of unique individual interpretation in the art of the cello. His expression on the cello is synthesis of belcanto and a “speaking” technique. "
