One of the best CDs in the genre of 20th century art song repertoire recordings.
Laura Kafka for the IAWM Journal 2 (Fall 2004) (full review)
There are some real treasures here and for anyone interested in 20th-century Czech music, a fresh perspective on the post-Janacek era.
Jan Smaczny, BBC Music Magazine, March 2004 (full review)
Kapralova's group of songs Forever would be a remarkable achievement for any composer, let alone one in her early twenties.

Both Buresova and Cheek display expertise in portraying the many intricate and complicated facets of this hauntingly beautiful vocal music,
and their CD is a must-have for anyone interested in the music of Kapralova. Michelle Latour, Kapralova Society Journal, Spring 2011
