Aleksander Raskatov - "Time’s River (Река времëн)"

The river of time in its striving Carries away all the deeds of people And drowns in the abyss of oblivion Peoples, kingdoms and kings 

Alexander Raskatov has multiplied his prestigious international collaborations. His oboe concerto “Time’s River”, a veritable hymn to nature in resonance with our time, inspired by a poem by Gavrül Derzavin, will be premiered at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam before going on tour around the world. 

The structure of this strong and suggestive work, whose aim is to enter the unconscious of an imaginary listener, refers to the mechanics of the human psyche, repetitive but not systematic with memories of childhood, and traditional melodies...
