"The day I heard Jimmy Page playing electric guitar was the day I abandoned hope of doing the same professionally. I reckon Marshall McGuire will have a similar impact on the ranks of wannabe classical harp players. He dramatically ups the ante with his amazing virtuosity."
"Rough Magic is a seductive sound world."
Spring Sea – Music of Dreams
"These beautiful performances transcend cultures."
"…masterly and entirely compelling."
On a Poet’s Lips
"[Jane Edwards and Marshall McGuire] delight with a sense of serene wonder."
"Few recordings lately have given me as much pleasure as McGuire’s – it’s thoughtfully-programmed, well-recorded and the playing is simply exquisite."
"McGuire’s playing serves his composers with an almost ideal blend of technical sureness and interpretative sympathy."
"McGuire’s playing is bold and vivid."
"[Barry Conyngham’s Streams] is a fitting conclusion to a disc that leaves me wanting to go back to the beginning each time I hear it."
- Andrew Ford, 24 Hours January 1996
The Birth of Venus
" Bist du bei mir is, under McGuire’s fingers, transformed into something quite masterly. That is the word for this CD - and for everything that McGuire does."
- John Carmody, The Sun-Herald 7 February 1999
