„Performing the late Beethoven’s A-flat major Sonata Op.110, the pianist displays her great qualities: she plays freely and with aplomb, bringing musical breath, width and shape to every phrase. A very touching performance”

© Mannheimer Morgen, Dienstag, 14.01.2014 Eckhard Britsch

“The mixture of naturaleness and thoughtful seriousness gives Veronika’s playing special effect”

Darmstädter Echo, Silvia Adler 30.05.2011

„V. Kopjova is an artist with a strong will, great technical abilities, and  unconventional thinking. Her mature, interesting and provocative interpretations were most memorable.”

Prof. Jurgis Karnavičius June 2009

„V. Kopjova is an artist of a romantic character. Her playing has a pictorial approach and she creates lyrical episodes by allowing each sound to flow in space while listening attentively. The pianist created memorable poetic landscapes.“

Daiva Tamošaitytė, LITERATŪRA IR MENAS (Literature and Art) 2007 10 05 Nr. 3159

“This is the pianist, who is capable of taking audiences attention by revealing the essence of the piece adapting her perfect technique”

Prof. Birutė Vainiūnaitė, PIANISTAS June 2006 m.
