Daniel Barenboim conducts Smetana’s “Má vlast”

Everyone knows Bedřich Smetana’s The Moldau – but almost no one knows the cycle Ma vlast, from which this wonderful river portrait is taken. But Smetana’s vision of creating a panorama of his Czech homeland is only conveyed in the complete work, with its vivid descriptions of nature and dramatic depictions of myths and historical events. At the helm of this performance is Daniel Barenboim, honorary conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, who has a particular flair for the powerful colours of late-Romantic music.
