by Professional Reviews Date Added: Jan 09, 2005
"Treny (“Laments”) is part of a trilogy of works by the Ukrainian-American composer Virko Baley that deal with the ultimate questions: questions of mortality, death, grief, and the legacy we leave behind… Treny is economically scored for 2 cellos and (in the end) soprano, and was inspired by the grief-wracked Renaissance poetry of Jan Kochanowski. Writing at a time of personal loss, and working with purposely restrained forces, Baley offers some of his most deeply felt, ingeniously developed music. Haunted by ghosts, suspended in a musical and emotional twilight, Treny is a masterful example of music’s power to express what words cannot.
