“Performing Paganini’s Variations on the aria by Paisiello Nel cor piu non mi sento, Hristo Popov proved to be a fascinating violin virtuoso who plays with great finesse and unexpected sound effects. His bowing and left hand technique was so amazing that the audience was looking for a third hand. With deceitful humor Popov draw everyone’s attention to the soulful aria.”
Stadt Sulzbach-Rosenberg, Germany

“...the performance benefited from the elegant purity soloist Hristo Popov invested in every phrase (Mozart’s Violin Concerto in A major, K. 219). Popov traced the lyrical and vibrant lines with unruffled assurance. He enabled the music to float where necessary and made easy work of the acrobatic demands.”
The Plain Dealer, Cleveland

“…a reading of unusual interest (Dvorak, “Dumky” Trio)... Unlike the rather generic treatment that this work often receives, this performance underscored the disjunctive elements of dumka’s unique form, highlighting the individual character of each succeeding section.”

"Hristo Popov is a musician’s musician. Eschewing any empty showmanship, he invests his considerable skills in giving performances that place substance over effect. It might not always be exciting to watch, but whatever “excitement” the eyes have been denied, the ears have not. He has a worthy collaborator in Mr. Enflo and it would be a pleasure to hear this fine duo in the future."
