An Art Song setting of Bravig Imbs's poem "Four Poems for Valeska - IV".
This song was composed by Christopher Ludwig, and performed by Baritone Cliff Ridley, pianist Tatiana Khvatova and violinist Alina Khvatova.
The stars float high and unperturbed
the gull's wing is folded on the wave.
Forgotten is this shore and desolate and dun
where is the gleam of the remembered tower.
Make now your orisons and your farewells,
the hour of voyage and of morning nears---
Does not the sky repeat the rose
and the clear stars the color of my love?
