Recurring Dream is inspired by those elusive visions that fascinate us - the time just before waking, shadows in the rain, scenes that visit our sleep again and again, and the icy light accompanying these nighttime images. These original compositions by Sylvan Grey contain sensitively phrased melodies and delicious harmonies. Grey produces a lush, full sound from the kantele by skillfully adding bell-like accents, ringing harmonics, arpeggios, and delicate ostinatos. The music is both exciting and intimate. Solidly constructed, it appeals to our intellect as well as our emotions.All the selections are unedited and were digitally recorded without the use of any electronic processing. Recurring Dream is a beautiful release and is sure to be enthusiastically favored among lovers of acoustic music. Her other recording on Fortuna Records is Ice Flowers Melting.

(5 out of 5 stars)
"A lovely album of deeply soulful and richly harmonic music.If you find the sound of dreamy, celtic harp(actually this instrument is a form of zither) a liitle passe, then allow yourself to be touched by the hypnotic, incandescent sound of ancient Finland.To dissect this recording into 'tracks' is to tamper with its whole beauty. This is liberating, sensual music that dives deeply into 'another' realm(of ancestoral spirits and the unconcious mindscape), managing always to take you with it! Reflective, meditative and haunting, BUT never light weight. The songs seem to maintain a delicate balance between structure and formlessness that never causes one to feel lost or unsatisfied(or bored!) There is no production 'overkill' evident here,Grey (solo) remains uncompromising in her artistic vision.I challenge anyone not to be moved by this lyrical and compelling tour de force. Please Sylvan, bring your mystical and charming Kantele to Australia.(but for the moment this exquistely executed CD will have to suffice!).So do yourself a favour and let this hidden gem become one of YOUR perrenial favourites, like it has been mine for over ten years.... For this ain't 'merely' entertainment, this is truely ART..."
