Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release features two undeservedly underperformed string quartets by the Russian master Sergey Taneyev, beautifully performed by the California String Quartet. The California String Quartet is Benjamin Lash, Katia Popov, Luanne Homzy, and Zach Dellinger. Based in California, the group has performed throughout the United States, and has recorded several albums to critical acclaim. “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 Read more ease.” (Gazzette Publications, Long Beach Grunion) “Popov’s musical voice was powerful, rich and full of life, her technique flawless and the collaboration… delicately exact.” (Press Telegram) Read less
