Columbia Records labeled Livianu as The Golden Voice of Romania. Dorel Livianu covered most genres of Romanian pop music, from urban folklore, the tango, foxtrot and the Romanian blues known as romanta.

He performed with the Jewish Theater Barasheum in Bucharest between 1939 and 1945, when Jewish entertainers were banned from regular theaters. He was deported and interned in a Romanian-Nazy labor-concentration camp in Transnistria for 8 months, which he survided due to his notoriety.

Livianu also recorded many Jewish and American popular songs while residing in Israel and the United States. He was a frequent guest singer on popular New York radio shows like The Joey Adams Show, The Forward Hour on WEVD, and many others.

He is considered to have had one of the most beautiful pop voices of Romania. Dorel Livianu was married in 1939 to Mella Silberstein and had one child in 1955, David Bogdan.

In 1967 he took residence in America, commuting for performances between Romania and the U.S. He passed away on April 2, 1997. He is survived by a son and 2 grandchildren.

One of Livianu's most memorable slogans was "Love the Romanian blues and you will forever stay young". It was one of my father's last wishes to make his recordings available to the world, as an expression of his everlasting love for Romania, Israel and America.
