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. "
Jim Ruggirello, Long Beach Grunion, Gazzette Publications
