This composition, recorded on CD-01, by Alberto Grau (b. 1937) was inspired by the poem Margarita by the Nicaraguan poet Ruben Dario.  Using only the first stanza of the poem, Grau explores various settings of the text and uses certain words like malaquita, tan bonita, and como tu to produce rich polyrhythmic textures.
