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,
“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. “
