*** “Marius Mihalache and his son Lorin Mihalache have an astral meeting on the stage of the Studio Hall”. Horia Ghibuțiu, Zile și nopți
*** “Far from viscous phrases and other arrogances, Marius Mihalache conquered by authenticity: jovial, courteous, and profoundly magnetic. Due to a suave maiden and the instrument players from the arena, Marius Mihalache proved that direct simplicity, flawless musicality and the irresistible dosage of authentic force and vivaciousness are rendered to a successful project: Săftița”. Mădălina Dumitrache, Bel Esprit.
*** “His instrument with strings and hammers proved to have no inferiority complexes when performing famous arias composed by Rahmaninov, Chopin, Schumann, Schubert or Mozart. One of the most important moments from his career was the meeting of Chick Corea, besides whom he held a series of concerts. He played and recorded besides Gloria Gaynor, Nina Simone, Steve Vai, Kitaro and other worldwide famous musicians, gaining his prestige of an absolutely original instrumental performer, getting out of the ancient fiddling dulcimer an opulence of sonorities, of which some never encountered before. From among them, he shares some in the concert-show from Bucharest”. – Bogdan Burileanu, Liternet
“Please, go to see and listen to the concert of Marius Mihalache, SĂFTIȚA, which is one of the most phenomenal cultural presences on the Romanian stage. It is said that it borders on genius, but I can tell you straightforward that it is something unheard of”. – Ion Caramitru
"If you have never listened to Marius Mihalache charming the dulcimer, it is high time that you buy tickets for Săftița. If you know what he can accomplish with this instrument, it is again appropriate to purchase tickets, because you shall hear sonorities not characteristic to him (it is a sign that MM still has lots to say from a musical point of view!). If you wish to disconnect from the daily madness, go to NTB to get your dose of beauty and optimism. I conclude by thanking them for saving my end of the year and for helping me to bid farewell to 2018 in an appropriate manner: with a smile on my face".
