Gwendolyn Masin and Yurodny – Carrick Water Music Festival, Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland

“[...] Gwendolyn Masin, one of the most formidable and charismatic violin talents in the country.”

– Dick O'Riordan, The Sunday Business Post, July 2009

Gwendolyn Masin, Solo Recital – National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland

“A thrilling violinist, Masin is also an adventurous talent.” 

– Dick O'Riordan, The Sunday Business Post, July 2008

Gwendolyn Masin and the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland – Good Shepherd Chapel, Waterford, Ireland

“Gwendolyn Masin, in the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E Minor, was in virtuoso form and, only a few notes in, had grabbed the music and asserted her expressive style. Her playing demanded attention and she got it with confident work that inspired rapt attention. In the slow movement, the music was plaintive, almost painful as her solo work made the violin weep with emotion.”

– Liam Murphy, The Munster Express, July 2008

Gwendolyn Masin, Artistic Director of the Carrick Water Music Festival – Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland

“This year’s festival is under the guidance of violinist Gwendolyn Masin, who is not just a brilliant musician but also an innovative and daring operator within the musical-cultural sphere.”

– Dick O'Riordan, The Sunday Business Post, August 2007

Gwendolyn Masin – Spiegel Tent, Dublin, Ireland

“Mark her down as a daring and exciting young performer who ventures courageously into unknown territory with relish.”

– Dick O'Riordan, The Sunday Business Post, January 2005

Gwendolyn Masin and Julia Bartha – Civic Theatre, Dublin, Ireland

“Gwendolyn Masin’s impressive playing of Franck and Beethoven sonatas revealed a mature and formidable talent that demands attention.”

– Dick O'Riordan, The Sunday Business Post, January 2005

Gwendolyn Masin and the Young European Strings Chamber Orchestra – National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland

“In a highly rewarding account of Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto in A major, Ms Masin’s incisive performance was rich in musical feeling.”

– Pat O'Kelly, Irish Independent, January 2005 

Gwendolyn Masin’s In Search of Lost Time Series – Dublin, Ireland

“There’s nothing more exciting in classical music than seeing energy and talent channelled into innovation.

Taking the bull by the horns and going for it is almost always going to be commercially risky in the classical arena but, thankfully, there are those who can still measure success outside of the box office. It helps, of course, if you are young and have the broad horizons of an already-established career beckoning.

Gwendolyn Masin fits the role nicely. She is 26 years old, has an impeccable musical pedigree, has glided over the pitfalls of child prodigy status, and progressed at such a pace that concertos are being dedicated to her.”

– Dick O'Riordan, The Sunday Business Post, September 2004

Gwendolyn Masin and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland – National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland

“Gwendolyn Masin was the impressive soloist in Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole with the RTÉ National Symphony. She has a beautifully rich tone, easy virtuosity and a real feeling for a musical line. Having conquered these peaks with seeming effortlessness, she allowed her charming personality to shine through fully.”

– Ian Fox, The Sunday Tribune, June 2003
