Joshua Rosenblum
Opera News, March 2016

Czech soprano Irena Troupová…is a gratifyingly clear exponent of these challenging, grippingly individual songs. They demand complete musical and intonational assurance, which she provides in abundance. © 2016 Opera News Read complete review

MusicWeb International, January 2016

[Soprano Irena Troupová] captures Ullmann’s Schoenberg-Zemlinsky side very well… Jan Dušek is her well-attuned colleague, who has few opportunities to indulge in postludes but sticks to the singer like glue. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Erin Heisel
American Record Guide, January 2016

Ullmann’s music is demanding of both singer and pianist, and Troupova and Dusek do pretty well. Troupova’s voice has little warmth, but she makes up for it with clarity of tone and excellent intonation. Dusek sounds confident in every piece. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Stephen Smoliar, September 2015

Troupová-Wilke is entirely at ease with the demands of all of the songs on this recording. Dušek is…a supporting accompanist… Hopefully this album will encourage more soprano vocalists to explore this highly engaging repertoire. © 2015 Read complete review
