Dreamtime Suite, performed by the California E.A.R.Unit, music of Virko Baley. Cambria Compact disc 1090, issued 1996. Reviewed by Richard S. Ginell in American Record Guide, March/April 1997, "There is a distinct voice to be heard here, at times a dark Slavic voice, with passages that slip in and out of an ambiguous dream-like state and tolling repeated chords that haunt the memory. Moreover, unlike too many contemporary works, this piece doesn't just go on and on only to stop arbitrarily; it has a direction and shape...a remarkable score that can take all that they [the performers] can give." (p. 46).
