"Orpheus Singing, as the title suggests, is another of Mr. Baley's more lyrical works. The Recitative and Aria movements are joyously songful, the latter ending with a 'tip of the hat' to that Legendary master of American song, George Gershwin. In the final movement, Kolomyika, the composer quotes generously from the traditional Ukrainian round dance, but spins the familiar melodies through some rather unconventional modulation schemes.
