Jean-Pierre Barricelli, The Press Enterprise, Riverside - California.
“Il concerto all'Accademia di Romania ha rivelato la sensibile musicalità e la morbida vocalità di Camelia Voin, interprete capace di contagiare, con la sua irresistibile presenza scenica, il pubblico romano. Il quale ha risposto decretando il pieno successo della serata con calorosi applausi.”
Valentina Lo Surdo, Radio Italia – RAI 3.
“Madam Voin’s performances reflect the depth of interpretation, musicality, and technical expertise needed to distinguish one’s self in the world of professional performance.”
Barry Alexander of the Barry Alexander International Competition, New York.
“Se hizo aplaudir por la belleza de timbre e interesó por su línea y delicadeza expresiva la rumana Camelia Voin.”
Enrique Franco, Diario El Pais, Madrid - Spain.
“Wie eine kammermusikalishe Delikatesse wirkte dagegen die weltliche Solokantate Ich bin in mir vergnügt BWV 204. Die aus Romänien stammende, in Kalifornien lebende Sopranistin Camelia Voin sang die vier Arien mit schlanker, beweglicher Stimme, fast instrumental geführt.”
Klaus Trapp, Darmstädter Echo, Darmstadt – Germany.
