"Neni pochyb o tom, ze Kapralova Quartet ve slozeni Veronika Panochova, Simona Hurnikova, Karolina Strasilova a Simona Heckova daly kompozicim spolku Hudbaby punc vyjimecnosti. Zkusenost a preciznost jsou jejich hlavni devizou, a je nad pochyby jasne, ze je jim soudoba hudba vlastni. (About Radioservis' CD Hudbaby 2)
Zdenek Kral, Opus Musicum 6 (2010)

"This hip and thought-provoking journey would not have been nearly as effective and enjoyable without the superb playing of the Kapralova Quartet." (About Radioservis' CD Hudbaby 2)
Michelle Latour, The IAWM Journal (Fall 2010)

"Skvelymi interpretkami skladieb pre slacikove kvarteto boli clenky slacikoveho kvarteta Vitezslavy Kapralovej „Kapralova Quartet“ Veronika Panochova, Simona Hurnikova, Karolina Strasilova a Simona Hecova. (About Radioservis' CD Hudbaby 2)
From a review by Melania Puskasova for Hudobny zivot, August 2010

"Vital, gripping and relentlessly present music-making counter-balanced by yielding tenderness in the wonderful Martinu and Kapralova."
Rob Barnett, Music Web International

"Nove CD Kapralove kvarteta je znamenitym dramaturgickym i interpretacnim pocinem."
Martin Flasar, Opus musicum, 2-3 (2006): 83.

"The Kapralova (Quartet)'s performance (of Kapralova's String Quartet) out-points the Janacek Quartet on a valuable all-Kapralova CD [Studio Matous MK 0049-2 011]. The work registered favourably but in a rather generalised way with the Janacek (Quartet). In the present case it leaves the listener in no doubt that this is a special piece of music."
Rob Barnett, MusicWeb

"The playing throughout by the eponymous group is exemplary. I am sure they will have wanted to make an impression with this recording [ArcoDiva UP0085-2 131] and that they surely do. A truly tremendous CD and one to which I shall frequently return."
Peter Herbert, Bohuslav Martinu Discussion Group

"The all-female Kapralova Quartet, who have by the way recorded their namesake's quartet, engage urgently and with convincing technical command with Schnittke's demanding creativity. The recording is exemplary."
Rob Barnett, MusicWeb

"Immensely accomplished performances..."
Jonathan Woolf, MusicWeb

"Prestoze lze Kapralova Quartet v domacim kontextu povazovat za relativne velmi mlade teleso, jeho zvuk a velika vyrazova homogenita vypovida o pozoruhodne zralosti, ktere se souboru za nekolik malo let sve kvartetni existence dostava."
Michal Rataj, Harmonie 2003/04

"Vyborna souhra, maximalni soustredeni, plnokrevny a presny projev, perfektni stylove nastudovani, muzikalita a vnitrni sila zaradili tento mimoradny koncert k vrcholum komorni rady festivalu Prazske jaro."
Lenka Foltynova, Harmonie 2002/08

"The Kapralova Quartet plays with an overall sense of purpose and homogeneity that only top quartets achieve."
Geoff Piper, Dvorak Society of Great Britain Newsletter

"V soucasne dobe patri nejen mezi raritni ansambly diky vyhradne zenskemu obsazeni, ale i mezi nejlepsi domaci smyccova kvarteta."
Rafael Brom, Tydenik Rozhlas 2001/41 [Czech Radio weekly]
