Several reviews have been printed in major newspapers in the Iberian Peninsula concerning her outstanding performances as a solo artist. Manuel Ferreira of Lisbon´s O Público wrote, “The Pianist Yara Gutkin showed her interpretive power playing the Allegro of the Concerto for Piano, Trumpet, and Orchestra of Shostakovich.” Basque newspaper Diario Vasco wrote, “Our thanks for the great moments that such a young pianist made us feel…it’s hard to believe that a human of such age could reach such a level…the interpretation of Beethoven´s Op. 53 was something marvelous…to achieve such a majestic repeat performance would be difficult.”

In 2006 she won the national piano competition of Ourém in Portugal. She was also awarded Honorable Mention as a finalist in the Galego-Portugues Competition “Real Club Náutico de Vigo” in Spain, and semi-finalist in Liszt-Garrison Piano Competition.
