Description

BEDRICH SMETANA MÁ VLAST (MY COUNTRY)

Thursday, April 30th at 8:00PM.

The Aaron Copland School of Music Orchestra under the direction of Maurice Peress presents a rare performance of Bedrich Smetana's Má Vlast (My Country).  Smetana, "the father of Czechish music," set out to create a body of works that celebrated the natural landscapes, history, native language, as well as the folk legends of Bohemia and Moravia and the people's struggle for independence. In 1874, just as he was becoming deaf, Smetana began work on what would become a monumental cycle of six symphonic poems; Vyšehrad  Vltava, Šárka, Z ceských luhu a háju (From Bohemian Woods and Groves), Tábor and Blaník.  Heard as a whole for the first time in 1882, Má Vlast was immediately acclaimed by the native musical public as representative of Czech National style. Smetana dedicated the cycle to the city of Prague where Maestro Peress had the honor of conducting the work with the Brno Orchestra.

All events take place at the beautifully-restored Bohemian National
Hall, 321 East 73rd Street, New York City.
