Description
The choir sings: 'There exists in a distant land / On the opposite shore / What we see in dreams / But is given to the foe.' The Song is dedicated to the composer Alexander Raskatov, who had just emigrated to Germany. It is a bitter and ironic representation of a land where one can lead the life of Riley, with idyllic birdsong, murmuring sounds, and soft string chords. But in the end the kitschy dream comes to a sticky end.
