#31 Bedrich Smetana


The Moldau, My Country

Bedrich Smetana used the 19th century popular form of a symphonic tone poem to musically demonstrate his love of country, and the flow of the Czech Vitava River (Moldau is German for Vitava).  The Moldau is one of six parts from the larger Má Vlast (My Country).?
