Think how they must look now, the mangrove keys
lying out there unresponsive to the lightning
in dark, coarse-fibred families,

where occasionally a heron may undo his head,
shake up his feathers, make an uncertain comment
when the surrounding water shines.

—Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979), from “Little Exercise”

sounds of Ukraine

When you live in a country where words seem to mean less and less, what a relief it can be to listen to a language you know not at all.

Alyona Alyona, live (acoustic session), Slovakia (Pohoda Festival), 2019

more sounds of Ukraine

Valentin Silvestrov (1937-), Requiem for Larissa (1997-1998, written for the composer’s wife); National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, National Academic Choir of Ukraine, live, Kiev, 2000

In this world of too much, too fast, too loud, something slow and deliberate can seem subversive.
