The happenings will keep on sounding in 2019 following the three days of whirlwind performances that were Gwendolyn's ingenious "Window Display Concerts" in Berne's Loeb Department Store. In March she plays with her trusted piano partner, Simon Bucher, in Caffè Bar Sattler, and in April, they will take over Adrianos Bar & Café, arguably the choice spot for coffee in Berne.
In the first two weeks of 2019, Gwendolyn performed seventeen concerts, including two live performances on Dutch National Radio and one live performance on Dutch National Television. Moreover, the violinist, together with her piano partner, Simon Bucher, gave nine concerts in three days during their Window Display performances in Switzerland's capital city. The series was one of many ways in which Gwendolyn brings classical music to wider audiences in order to give the genre a greater spotlight in everyday life.
Gwendolyn Masin and Finghin Collins' inaugural International Master Course at the National Concert Hall of Ireland in August 2019 has been announced. Further faculty members are Kirill Troussov (violin), Maxim Rysanov (viola) and Miklós Perényi (cello). Applications are now open.
Gwendolyn's award-winning method, Michaela's Music House, The Magic of the Violin, has been selected for print in the ESTA Edition. The method joins the ranks of such luminaries as Max Rostal and Phyllis Young. The tutor is in three parts and includes a separate book featuring Gwendolyn's compositions.
Gwendolyn returns to South Korea, for the second time in as many years, to teach and perform.

"Captivatingly phrased, strongly characterised and atmospherically recorded, Masin’s inspired programme appears to emerge languorously from a heat-haze." Read the full review in this month's issue.

Gwendolyn Masin, geroemd om haar technische superieure, verfijnde, intensieve en contrastrijke expressie, komt terug naar Nederland! De Nederlandse topmusicus toerde de laatste decennia over de hele wereld. Ze soleerde bij de grote orkesten, heeft een eigen festival en bestiert een professor-zetel aan het Conservatorium van Geneve. Eind januari zet Gwendolyn Masin opnieuw voet op Nederlandse bodem en geeft drie concerten in exclusieve concertzalen.
Gwendolyn joined mezzo soprano, Claude Eichenberger, and conductor and pianist, Graziella Contratto, in an event for Switzerland's SFR Radio. Held in Berne's National Theatre and met by an audience of 300, the musicians performed Strauss' Four Songs and discussed the impact of classical music on Berne and Bernese culture. The event was hosted by journalist Peter Brandenberger.
A memento from Gwendolyn's tour in the Republic of Korea. This programme is from an evening concert that was held on 7 October 2016 in Daejeon's Arts Centre. It saw Gwendolyn lead the principals of Daejeon's Philharmonic Orchestra in Beethoven's Septet and Mendelssohn's Octet.
