Oana’s panpipe vibrates at the height of perfection.
Tudor Jarda, composer
The artist Oana Lianu has achieved her goal: to make people happy.
Prof. Ioan Lianu, ethnologist researcher
If Mozart were alive, he would certainly write music for the panpipe, after hearing Oana Lianu, the queen of the panpipe.
Univ. Prof. PhD Valentin Timaru, composer
In love with folklore, an artist of great value, Oana Lianu perceives music at an intense level, placing herself inside this folklore.
Univ. Prof. PhD Constantin Ripa, composer
Although it proposes a different frame from the one they were created in, the artistic interpretation of carols in Oana Lianu’s concert does not affect their purity, nor does it cancel their legacy.
Teoctist, Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church
A true star, our dear Oana, blows in her enchanted panpipe and sings songs for longing, love, pain and joy, and makes us better.
Prof. Laurentu Hodorog, the founder of the Martisor ensemble
A genius artist, without a match, Oana Lianu is a virtuoso of great talent and artistic refinement, maybe the best performer on the Romanian scene since Gheorghe Zamfir.
Miron Blaga, poet and journalist
When Oana was born, God had a moment of inspiration.
Eugen Teglas, journalist
Oana Lianu, the incomparable, magnificent artist of the panpipe.
