The suave delightful tone, the heavenly sound and the charismatic performance of the young violonist made the prestigious critics stand up for his presence in concerts and acclaim him to be: the greatest violonist of his generation!
There is nothing more that can be said of his performances than what his public affirms after attending his concerts: „[…] Stoica had it all: the golden tone, the immaculate technique, the beautiful line, and something else; live, he radiated emotion.”; „[…]I closed my eyes and the young who was on stage I heard it like a 70 year old men that lived his whole life and now is sharing with us his experiences of a lifetime. I loved the interplay with orchestra and conductor. I was also intrigued by his changes of vibrato colors: a painter with sound.”; „[…]Stoica by contrast celebrates gesture, risking control, musical architecture and line in order to attempt faster attack, harder connection of the bow through the string, and greater tonal extremes. His brilliance finally had space to stretch, his expressiveness given reason and scope to justify it.”.
