La Montagne (Chausson Chanson perpétuelle, Wesendonck lieder de Wagner, L'Orchestre d'Auvergne)
"Hier soir, c'est la mezzo-soprano Wilke te Brummelstroete qui a enchanté l'Amphithéatre Michel de l'Hopital à Clermont Ferrand.....
une soirée exceptionnelle!"

The Telegraph (Verdi Requiem , Holland Symfonia, Otto Tausk)
"Met haar krachtige mezzo maakte zij alle smarten prachtig voelbaar" (with her powerful mezzo she made all the sorrows beautifully perceptible")

Göttinger Tageblatt (Nicholas McGegan Farewell Gala/ Händel-Festspiele Göttingen)

“...the rounded, cultivatie low register of the mezzo-soprano Wilke te Brummelstroete....”

“....ardently intense....” (Hannoversche Allgemeine)

The Daily Telegraph (Haydn Nelson Mass,BBC Proms, Royal Albert Hall, Sir John Eliot Gardiner)
"And how perfectly matched the four soloists were, and how individual in their own right, the rich soprano of Luba Orgonasova offset by the purer sound of mezzo Wilke te Brummelstroete"

Sud Ouest  (Berlioz Les Nuits d'Été,  Festival du Pays d'Ans)
"Cette grande voix a donné une interprétation sensible, tantôt en jouée et mutine dans 'Villanelle', puis très emouvante avec 'Au cimitière' "
(“This superb voice gave us a sensitive interpretation, lively and playful in ‘Villanelle’, then very moving in ‘Au cimitière’ “)

Forum Opera (Berlioz Les Nuits d'Été)
"Quelle fermeté technique! Il y a là une solidité vocale autorisant des effets de phrasé et de legato vraiment admirables et la chanteuse wagnérienne laisse souvent percer la chanteuse classique formée à Bach"

Bach

Gramophone (Bach Cantatas-Sir John Eliot Gardiner, SDG101)

GRAMOPHONE RECORD OF THE YEAR AWARD 2005
GRAMOPHONE BAROQUE VOCAL AWARD 2005

There are a great many mindblowing, beautiful moments: the
deliciously syncopated contralto aria from No 30, sung with poise by
Wilke te Brummelstroete and graced by playing of magical delicacy from
the EBC, had me reaching for the repeat button"

Webmaster of Bach Cantatas Website, Ayreh Oron (Bach Cantatas-Gardiner, SDG101)
"For me it is such a joy hearing first rate soloist as mezzo-soprano
Wilke te Brummelstroete in heart-rending performance of the aria
"Menschen glaubt doch dieser Gnade' (BWV 7)

Sûddeutsche Zeitung (Matthäus Passion, Orchester der Bayerische Rundfunk, Peter Dijkstra)
"Wilke te Brummelstroete gefiel besonders in der anrührenden Arie Erbarme Dich"

Münchner Merkur (Johannes Passion,  Münchner Philharmoniker, Frans Brüggen)
"Wilke te Brummelstroete (Alt) passte am besten zu Brüggens ungekünsteltem Konzept!"

Web Classical Source (Bach/Mendelssohn St Matthew Passion, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Sir Roger Norrington)
"I'd have liked to have heard more of Wilke te Brummelstroete's expressive mezzo-soprano,  but she made the most of the limited opportunities Mendelssohn left, and did so with attractive and pliant tone."

Web Skynet blogs (Bach/Mendelssohn St Matthew Passion, Sir Roger Norrington)
"A chaque phrase, Joanne Lunn and Wilke te Brummelstroete nous propulsent dans les cieux avec leurs voix pures et sublimes, un vrai régal comme on l'a rarement entendu en concert."

De Telegraaf (Bach Cantatas, Sir John Eliot Gardiner)
“The best soloist was Wilke te Brummelstroete.  It was a pity that
Bach wrote so little for her in these cantatas”

Gooi en Eemlander (Matthäus Passion, Ned. Bachvereniging, Richard Egarr)
“Alt Wilke te Brummelstroete zong de schrijnende aria ‘Erbarme Dich’ extra meeslepend”

“..Erbarme Dich  werd plotseling een sprankelend mini-concertje. Adembenemend!....” (Algemeen Dagblad)

“....een der hoogtepunten de aria  Erbarme Dich, als die violen en die stem van Wilke te Brummelstroete geen genade afdwingen naar de aarde, weet ik het niet meer” (schrijver Kees Fens in De Volkskrant)

Beethoven

The Huddersfield Examiner (Beethoven Missa Solemnis, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko)
“The soloists worked wonders as a sort of vocal string quartet.....Wilke te Brummelstroete was awe-inspiring in the Agnus Dei!”

Liverpool Daily Post (Beethoven Missa Solemnis, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko)
“The soloists seated behind the orchestra were well suited. Wilke te Brummelstroete, a Wagnerian mezzo with considerable experience singing Baroque works, was particularly notable”

Hannover Zeitung (Beethoven 9 Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Eliot Gardiner)
“Hochkarätig war auch das international besetzte Solistenquartet mit Rebecca Evans, Wilke te Brummelstroete, Michael Spyres und Vuyani Mlinde”

Birmingham Post (Beethoven 9 Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Eliot Gardiner)
“The quartet of soloists was magnificent!”

The Art Desk (Beethoven 9 Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Eliot Gardiner)
“Soprano Rebecca Evans and mezzo Wilke te Brummelstroete fared best of the soloists”

Express & Star (Beethoven 9 Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Eliot Gardiner)
“The soloists were in the centre of the orchestra, yet the voices projected perfectly!”

Hannoversche Allgemeine (Beethoven 9 Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Eliot Gardiner)
“Das Solistenquartett bezauberte durch bemerkenswerte Textverständlichkeit”

NRC-handelsblad (Beethoven 9 Symphonie, Orkest van het Oosten, Jan Willem de Vriend)
