“Yonan's playing is characterized by clarity, technical mastery and passionate vitality.” –Berliner Morgenpost
“David Yonan is one of the most gifted violinists of his generation” Ruggiero Ricci
"Yonan has impeccable technique, a sumptuous tone and a real depth to his playing."
The Whole Note, Toronto 9/2015
"Seine klaren Melodiebögen sowie sein auch in den raschen Passagen stets transparentes und präzises Spiel verliehen dem Mozartkonzert eine festlich-frohe Stimmung. Beim Saint-Saens-Rondo überzeugte der junge Violinist durch feine Tonabstimmung und farbenreiche Nuancierung, die die Eleganz und morbide Melancholie französisch-romantischer Musik sinnfällig hervorhob. "
Joachim Kaiser, Westfälische Rundschau
"Yonan caught this "monologue spirit:" nicely, while effortlessly taking on Debussy's demands...Yonan served as an excellent representative of Debussy's seriousness of purpose."
San Francisco Examiner
"The concert at Carnegie Hall was just plain incredible. I never heard the Porgy and Bess variations by Igor Frolov and so amazing and fresh. The piece stands in it's own right in the same league as other major violin variation works. To play it you need amazing control and skill from both the violinist David Yonan and the accompanist-the wonderful pianist Susan Merdingerand that both artists really have. But beyond the technical aspect, there was music and soul that shone through. I am glad I went to the concert and glad I got to hear and meet the artists! Congrats!!!"

“Yonan convinces with a perfect technique and security, even in the most difficult trills and double stops in the highest registers.” Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ)
“The young convincing violinist David Yonan from Berlin performed the works of Bach, Paganini, Enesco, Wieniawski and Ysaye, all composers who test the limits of even the most accomplished musicians. David Yonan opens up intensively in his playing. He played authentically without leaving behind the virtuoso glamour. Extended applause followed his wonderful performance.” Niedersächsische Allgemeine Hannover “
“grand prize winner of the International Ruggiero Ricci concert prize was 20 year old David Yonan who bewitched and dazzled the audience with Wieniawski’s Faust Fantasy... and won an engagement with the Berlin Symphony orchestra at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall."
