"The young Romanian Andrea Chira receives the legacy of the greatest Simion Stanciu, the first soloist who played this instrument to perform and record virtuoso repertoire of Vivaldi, Marcello, Mozart mostly with ``I Solisti Veneti`` under the baton of Claudio Scimone."
Andreea Chira is a young and talented pan flutist from Bucharest, Romania working and living in Vienna, Austria. Born into a family of musicians, her interest for music was given to her as a gift in her cradle.
From early childhood she was fascinated by the pan flute and revealed her love for music, wanting to uncover all the secrets of this musical instrument. In 2002 her talent was discovered at the age of 11 by Professor Stelian Coman from the “Palatul National al Copiilor Institute” in Bucharest, Romania. Encouraged by her parents Andreea started taking lessons from pan pipe specialist Professor Cornel Pana at the “Dinu Lipatti” music high school in Bucharest.
Three years later she won the National Olympic Competition in Romania. Following these successes she participated in the National Olympic Competitions music festivals as well as national and international contests. At an early age she worked with orchestras such as “Doina Dunarii“, “Doina Bucuresti” and “Romanasul” and performed in Korea, Portugal, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, Italy, Turkey and Austria
