In her recitals, Kulikova speaks directly, almost conversationally, with an audience. She excels in differentiating the lines of what she is playing; melodic lines that pass from one string to another, and even cross each other, yet retain consistent tone-color; richly resonant, cello-like thumb strokes, and a singing tone up in the highest positions of an intensity almost too beautiful to bear. She also brings to the repertoire classical works by Russian composers, performing them in a way only a Russian can!
