Shin-ichi Fukuda(Japan): "... Your playing is so beautiful in Chavarri's rare Sonata! Brava! Also Great performance ! ..."
Benjamin Verdery(Yale University, New Heaven, USA) ... the color, the phrasing really shapes the piece in a way I have never heard, I particularly like the tempo of the first movement. I will now play your interpretation for my students who play this work! It has to be one of the best. It is clear you are so passionate about the piece and understand the work on the deepest level ... "

Michael Friedman, Singer- Songwriter (Vancouver):  "... One of the finest guitarists anywhere specializing in contemporary classical guitar is the amazing PIA GAZAREK-OFFERMANN - and not only is she one awesome player but a also an incredible guitar instructor ..."
Axel Weidenfeld (Uni Oldenburg): " ... eine CD, auf die Du sehr stolz sein kannst - und die ich ohne Bedenken in der internationalen Top-Garde der GitarristInnen ansiedeln würde ..."
Don Witter,Jr.(NYC, USA), member of NYCCGS: " ... In the gifted hands of Pia Gazarek-Offermann, the many varied textures in the compositions were crafted with expertise and knowing musical understanding.The thematic variety in this composition will surely challenge the greatest musical minds in make coherent sense of so much variety but Pia is up to the task ... What Pia does is to make these works one jewel after another. Her use of tone color, phrasing and articulation is of the highest realm of execution which makes the music sings it's best song ... in this musical world we yearn for our hearts to be touched and senses awakened, here is someone who does just that and more.

José Antonio Guerrero Ortiz(Texas): " ... I have listen to your CD already more than 5 times already from beginning to end and I am still listening to it right now! It is superb! It is gorgeous! You emotions, phrasing, and beautiful quality of who you are is ringing loudly in my ears as I write you this thank you note. I will never forget this. You are an inspiration to the world and to myself. You are a true artist of high and divine beauty ... I am a lover of all the art, literature, dance, and music. You are the true representation of true art. I am just a humble servant of art and music, but you are the true gifts of art. Thank you once again! ... "
Stefan Majakowski(Amsterdam): " ... the overal feeling is that you are playing from inside the music, not at all wrestling with the composare's intentions; this is obviously a big achievement. I was really surprised by your ability to put new life into Mompou's suite (the tempo and lightness of the 1st mvt. is really fantastic). I've heard this suite so often, but it can sound so tired or just frozen in the way its approached. Here the piece is rejuvinated, I think (maybe even to the point of bringing out some of the flaws in the actual composition)
The sound quality is also striking - especially the high registers are absolutely magical ..."
Daryl Perry(Canada): " ... I must say that your playing is quite wonderful. So sensitive and so poetic, finely textured, played with strong feeling, but yet measured and well proportioned. Your sensitivity towards the music is acute and finely tuned and you are able to bring the listener into that refined understanding of these wonderful pieces ..."

Auszug CD- Rezension “SATYAGRAHA” – Classical Guitar Magazine:
… From the first notes you know what the climate of this recording will be: poetic and deep. What is present in each piece - whatever its type of language: tonal, atonal, modal and any other combinations possible - is a deep feeling for Life and an authentic sensibility and intelligence. And Pia Gazarek-Offermann’s interpretation is at the same level: excellent. She offers a very convincing performance that contributes to our understanding and love of this music. She is truly outstanding. Listening to that exquisite playing, you understand who Pia Gazarek-Offermann is. She has a great sensibility in her phrasing and she has her own special sound, extremely pure. This helps her to convey to the listener a world of inner poetry. She is nothing but a true artist who never wants to show off but aims to speaking to us, something we need today more than ever. Indeed we need a music that speaks about our time: us, our questions and feelings about truth, tenderness, depth or delicious lightness. And she is delivering that. Let’s listen … Danielle Ribouillault, Paris
Auszug CD- Rezension "Satyagraha" Akustik Gitarre:

… Die Interpretation ist ein Genuss, der auch den Ohren von Leuten schmeichelt, die sonst mit Gitarre wenig am Hut haben. An den Tentos kann man sich fest hören – um spätestens bei „Equinox“ die gleiche Erfahrung zu machen - eine rundum gelungene CD ... Harald Wittig, Akustik Gitarre
... You are an extraordinarily feeling woman. This is what audiences hear when you play. They have a sense of your extreme sincerity and commitment to the music. But beyond that you have a deeply profound soul  that one hears immediately in your playing.This is a gift. You are always seeking the truth in the music you play and in life.This is one of the main reasons you are so beautiful and powerful ...  Benjamin Verdery, NYC, Yale University, New Haven

… With an eclectic assortment of romantic and melancholic tunes, German musician Pia Gazarek-Offermann’s performance was indeed very engaging. Two of her numbers were played on the 19th century copy Guitar, Panormo. Her amazing habit of synchronising some of her facial expressions in the rhythm to the music was indeed fascinating … The Kathmandu Post
... Dass Pia Offermann den ersten Teil der schwermütig-träumerischen Soloparts zunächst vor dem Publikum, später verborgen auf der Empore des Saales spielte, war weit mehr als ein humoristischer Einfall: Hiermit trug der Klang symbolhaft über beengende Ländergrenzen hinaus in die Welt. Das Publikum applaudierte minutenlang ... Gitarre Aktuell
