SAN FRANCISCO CLASSICAL VOICE (November 20, 2018)
“The concert ended with Stölzel’s settings of five poems by Emily Dickinson for ensemble and soprano, The Gorgeous Nothings. They were anything but nothings. Her treatment of Dickinson’s fragmentary poems made the point clearly, displaying a fusion of well-constructed support structures and a gift for melody.”

I CARE IF YOU LISTEN (October 2, 2018)
“Ingrid Stölzel has a gift for evoking a sense of longing. One listen to any of the pieces on her new album The Gorgeous Nothings, released on Navona Records, makes this instantly evident. Despite the album’s breadth of music, which includes two song cycles and three standalone pieces, it finds its cohesiveness through its consistent exploration of our humanness: our search for meaning, our mortality, and the inevitable struggles that come with our existence.”
