Excerpts from Reviews for the

Long Beach Symphony Orchestra with Soloist Katia Popov, Violin in the

Michael Daugherty’s Violin Concerto “Fire and Blood”,

June 14th, 2008, Long Beach Terrace Theatre.

Conductor Enrique Arturo Demecke.

“Popov’s musical voice was powerful,

rich and full of life, her technique flawless and the collaboration

with Diemecke delicately exact. ” John Farrel, Press Telegram

“The second, “River Rouge” (named

after the Ford plant), is a delicate and moving musical examination

of life and love, which Popov made into an impressively passionate musical

painting, mixing joy with solemnity and sadness. ” John Farrel,

Press Telegram

“Our soloist, Katia Popov, was fabulous,

and I don’t just mean the dress. The LBSO’s principal second

violin has a beautiful sound that is bigger than some of the international

soloists we’ve heard over the years, as well as technique to burn.

She delivered a magnificent performance, using her magic fingers to

surmount myriad hurdles with jaw-dropping ease. “
