… as regards flute soloist Niurka González Núñez. The winner of the Interpretation Prize in Paris, on the other hand, showed her understanding of Mozart based on a sensible phrasing work, until a light dissertation is done, but with the deepness characterizing the Austrian musician…
Erick Alba (November 24th, 2006) La Jornada newspaper, México

… She has a great musicality, combined with a fine technique.
Eivind Aadland (February 1996), extract from a letter

… Niurka González’s recital started with F. Doppler’s Hungarian Pastoral Fantasy. But once Niurka (born in Cuba) changed to Latin American music we could hear her in all her fullness, especially in Leo Brouwer’s “La región más transparente” (“The most transparent region”). Her deep expressiveness astonished me.
Mike MacMahon ( 2006) Pan Magazine, British Flute Society.

… Then the beautiful Cuban soloist Niurka González played "Lamento por Rafael Orozco" (1996) on the clarinet, although in the program she appears as flautist and as such has won several prizes… In the melodic figurations of the clarinet, Niurka was especially musical during this melancholic piece that does not present major technical difficulties, except during the “cadenza” because of its high pitches.
Anonymous. (December, 2007) E mol, Chile

… Niurka González successfully overcomes this trial. She has already revealed herself as an excellent flautist, as much for the achievement of a beautiful and heavenly sound…, as for the understanding of the style and ornamentation of the epoch.
María Antonieta Henríquez (2000). Presentation of CD Barroco Trópico

...when accompanying a flutist of Niurka Gonzalez’ stature, who with distinctive lyricism evokes the colossal dimension of the hymn “Prayer to a peasant” (Plegaria de un labrador) in a version Leo himself (Leo Brouwer) made for this concert.

… the huge possibilities of flautist Niurka González Núñez, to whose beauty of sound, we must add a true passion for communicating the undertone of each score.
Pedro de la Hoz (February, 2002), Periódico Granma.

… That is when González Núñez, … showed her professorship: it is not only the pureness of sound, praised and applauded by everyone; it is even more, the internalization of language, her power of conviction and charm, her integration to the orchestra, as a leader. Stellar moments for the National Symphonic Orchestra and the young flautist.
Pedro de la Hoz (May, 1999) Periódico Granma.

… Especially, Niurka González, who played the “travesera” flute in such a way that everyone was amazed. It will be necessary to follow her track.
Anonymous (November, 2007), Telde, Tenerife, Spain

… In the Concert for flute, the alternative given by the young Cuban Niurka González Núñez turned out to be inspiring. She has Mozart well under her skin and even more, a full sound, a delightful boldness in the figuration of cadenzas, she has a brilliant future around the corner
Pedro de la Hoz (february 1996) Periódico Granma.

Fans will be pleasantly surprised to hear Niurka González, a classically trained musician, accompanying him (Silvio Rodriguez) on a seductive flute.

On the other hand, the second CD, totally subordinate to literary references –which is not a novelty for this composer–, starts with “La región más transparente” (“The most transparent region”) (1982), for flute and piano, based on an Aztec poem, which in its turn inspired Carlos Fuentes’ homonymous novel. In this case, the excellent participation of young flutist Niurka González, who adds to her technical mastery, a remarkable interpretative maturity, must be pointed out.
Clara Díaz Journal “Clave, Revista Cubana de Música” (Journal) Year: 5 Number: 2-3 Page 96.

... the flute of Niurka González would cover Latin American academic music from its canonical aesthetics to the most irreverent ones.

… Niurka González –presently one of the most extraordinary young flautists in the world- with her brilliant interpretation of “La región más transparente” (“The most transparent region”)
…Isabelle Hernández (2004) Presentation of Master Leo Brouwer’s CD Homo Ludens.

…I declare we are in presence of a unique, exceptional talent, both for her qualities as instrumentalist, as well as for her musical gift… I think I can affirm that she will be the great flute player of South America in the future...

Alain Marion,  professor of flute National Conservatory in Paris (January 1995), extract from a letter

… in which occasion she again surprised and astonished with her supreme technique and musicality…
We are in front of a great musician: Niurka González
Leo Brouwer (August 1996), extract of a letter.

…  The Cuban flautist Niurka González Núñez must be catalogued as a “virtuoso” of her instrument. Since she was very young, she has been harvesting undisputable success with her instrument. … Artists like her can –with excellence– do several things at the same time. In her case, she performs as one of the most important Cuban interpreters of the last years and, at the same time, altruistically dedicates herself to teaching.
Juan Piñera (December, 2006) extract of an article

… About the stature of Niurka González as musician, she speaks for herself, since she is magnificent throughout the whole disk…
Laura Inclán Narbona (July, 2002). Presentation of CD Flauta Virtuosa.

Her interpretations combines technical perfection with a passion that nearly makes me jump in my seat.
