The Panflutist Petruta Küpper (28) from Osnabrück was early one of the top candidates of the RTL TV show "The Super Talent". As one of 36,500 applicants the pretty Romanian native went on to race. With her masterful panflute performances (at the casting in October 2009, she played "Lonely Shepherd" by James Last, at the semi-final in early December she starred with Morricone's classic "Once Upon a Time in the West"), she finally made it to the final, together with eleven other candidates. There she was beaten by the artistic dog show Yvo Antoni & Prima Donna and the opera singer Vanessa Calcagno and finally was confirmed in the third place. Nevertheless, a likable musician's dream came true. On January 15th, an album was released with her music, produced by Sony Music Label, Columbia Germany. The longplayer carries the title "Pan-Dreams". It also contains a Duet with the last year Super Talent winner Michael Hirte.

Petruta Küpper grew up in Sibiu, Romania with her four siblings in a family of a single mother. Money was tight, but the promotion of artistic talents of her children (sister, Lorena, 22, plays violin and sings) had first priority. Petruta understood early on that she was able to contribute with her exceptional musical talent to support the desperately needed family income. "I have no words to describe how much Petruta has done for our family," says her mother. She lives in Sibiu with her oldest but handicapped daughter Elena who requires round-the-clock care.
