London Symphony Orchestra - Home Thoughts

Performance of Smetana's Ma vlast.

 

The richly tuneful depiction of the River Vltava is the best-known of the cycle of six tone-poems that Smetana composed during the 1870s in honour of his homeland, but the other five, each portraying a colourful location or episode from the Czech history, are no less evocative.

 

The Czechs certainly think so: Má Vlast’s attractive brand of nationalism has made it an established and emotionally charged part of the annual Prague Spring Festival.

 

Same performance also on 15th May at 7:30pm.
