"Of the new works, the most attractive on first listening was Baley's own 'Nocturnal No. 4.' Though reminiscent of the nocturnes and night music of Crumb, it has a strong sense of individuated identify and direction that was mostly missing in other contemporary pieces on the program."
— John Henken, Los Angeles Times
"Virko Baley's 'Nocturnal No. 4' uses piano sonority in sophisticated yet highly dramatic ways. In its center are '13 Interludes' — delicate aphorisms each with its own flavor."
— Bernard Holland, The New York Times
