«È stata una collaborazione construttiva e pe mer me di grande soddisfazione, perchè Lungu si è rivelato uno stupendo Direttore d’orchestra mostrando anche una perfetta conoscenza delle tradizioni e delle moltiplici esigenze dei cantanti.»
Flavio Trevisan / Stage Director (2018)
«...I have sang so many times with Mr. Vladimir Lungu in the very successful productions such as L'elisir d'amore, La Traviata, Lucia di Lammermoor, La bohème, Madama Butterfly and numerous concerts during the last 7 years that we worked. He proved himself as a very professional, hard-working musician, at the same time respectful and very friendly person. So, under my experiences, I would like very much to strongly recommend Mr. Vladimir Lungu as a very talented and passionate opera conductor.»
«...is difficult to accept another interpretation of Rossini's Stabat Mater, as it was materialized on the stage, conducted by Vladimir Lungu. At least not soon.»
