An Art Song setting of Bravig Imbs's poem "Four Poems for Valeska - II".
This song was composed by Christopher Ludwig, and performed by Baritone Cliff Ridley, pianist Tatiana Khvatova and violinist Alina Khvatova.
Near this slow river slept the dread jaguar
and on this monstrous lilly-pad he paused.
The morning sun was mauve and stilled the shrieking
their plumage faded in the mist that rose
warm from the wide savannahs.
