Daniel Barenboim conducts Smetana’s “Má Vlast”
Má Vlast (My Homeland)
A masterpiece of Czech romantic music, Bedřich Smetana’s Má Vlast (My Homeland), can be heard at these concerts. The cycle of six symphonic poems, composed within five years, is rarely performed in its entirety; one usually hears only The Moldau, the best-known part. In terms of content, Smetana is dealing with the myths of his Czech homeland in addition to its landscape. You can look forward to experiencing how Daniel Barenboim, who has been conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker for 51 years by now, will interpret the entire cycle.
