“With her flawless technique, natural musicality and gorgeous sound Gohar Vardanyan is undoubtedly one of the most talented young guitarists I had ever had the pleasure to teach. It is only a matter of time before the entire guitar world will be speaking of her.”

.:Antigoni Goni Classical Guitarist ( Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel )

“Gohar Vardanyan performs with a genuine passion and virtuosity that is engaging and compelling.”

.:Sharon Isbin Grammy Winning Guitarist ( The Juilliard School )

“Rodrigo’s Invocación y Danza was the best piece of the night . . . There are very few times that I go to a concert and am completely enraptured by the person on stage. I can honestly say that happened last Friday. Gohar’s performance was evocative, and had my attention from the start. To come out of the comparatively straight forward music thus in the program and tackle a piece with the depth of the Rodrigo was an amazing programming choice.”

“She has a marvelous technical aptitude, effortlessly rendering arpeggios and runs. Best of all, it doesn’t come off as something difficult, but rather very fluid.”

Grand Traverse Insider Ross Boissoneau

“With a musicality and emotional quality in her playing that one would expect from someone much older than the young wunderkind, Vardanyan is the complete package. Not only is she able to draw you into her performances with engaging musical interpretations, but she has the technical facility that is required of any concert level guitarist.”

Guitar International Magazine Matt Warnock

“Evocative and passionate, Armenian-born classical guitarist, Gohar Vardanyan gave a performance that was both colourful and colloquial and layered with complexity and nuance. Her technique and finger-work were flawlessly clean as one would expect from an experienced classical guitarist only in this instance it approached another realm of perfection.”
