child musical prodigies : Sasha Popov
Figure 1.--We are not sure when Sasha was born. We would guess about 1900. note Sasha Popov wearing a kneepants sailor suit with his violin, probably about 1910. He looks about 12-13 years old here. Note the short socks. This was a photo postcard. Click on the image to see the message on the back. I'm not sure what it said.
We are not sure when Sasha was born. We would guess about 1900. note Sasha Popov wearing a kneepants sailor suit with his violin, probably about 1910. He looks about 12-13 years old here. The fact that postcards were being sold of him shows that he had made a considerable expressiion as a child prodigy. Note the short socks. European boys commonly wore socks, American boys more commonly wore long stockings. We have virtually no information about Sasha and his childhood musical activities. He became a noted Bulgarian composer, violinist, and pedagogue. The Bulgarian International Music Academy was named after Prof. Hopefully we can acquire more informatioin about him. Hopefully our readers who are knowledgeable about music will be able to provide us some information.
