Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall Recital Debut, Nov. 23, 2003

“One hears many flute recitals these days, but it is seldom that one gets to experience the kind of consistent polish, excitement, invention and sheer joy…

Ms. Yárritu is a superior player in more ways than one: she has an exquisitely fine tone with a rock solid, steady vibrato; she plays in tune, singing with a most elegant, expressive quality; and she is always rhythmically precise."
-Anthony Aibel, New York Concert Review

“A remarkable interpreter."
-Alain Marion, Paris Conservatory, 1995

“First class."
Ransom Wilson, Yale University, 1994

“A sincere musician playing with flawless technique... possessing a tone of unusual depth and brilliance..."
-Jaan Oun, Estonian National Symphony, Estonian Daily, 1994
