Acclaimed for her passionate, powerful performances, beautiful sound, and compelling command of her instrument, violinist Bella Hristova is a musician with a prestigious international career and numerous recordings, prizes and awards to her name.
The Strad has praised, "Every sound she draws is superb" and the Washington Post wrote she is "a player of impressive power and control".
Bulgarian-born Bella Hristova was the winner of the first Michael Hill International Violin Competition in 2007 which was later followed with a national tour for Chamber Music NZ.
In 2017 she returned to New Zealand, performing and recording Beethoven's 10 Sonatas with renowned pianist Michael Houstoun. Bella has once again returned to New Zealand to present Brahms' three sonatas for violin and piano, which she and Michael will record soon after.
