His international career has taken him throughout Europe and the UK, the Far East and the USA, where he appears every season. His CD recordings on the Meridian and Brilliant Classics labels have been acclaimed by the international music press and broadcasts of his performances include Classic FM, NTV Japan, BBC Radio, Swiss TV, ITV Thames and Radio New Zealand amongst many others. The Daily Telegraph critic described his playing as "a truly astonishing fire and force" whilst Fanfare Magazine USA wrote: "a gifted and greatly cultivated Chopin pianist. Alvanis is an artist who makes most other pianists sound just a wee bit routine." The Evening Standard commented: "his touch was magical...the sound is with me still".
