MSO: Bedrich Smetana: Ma Vlast

"One day in 1867, visiting the forests of southern Bohemia, Smetana came upon a spot where two rivulets merge to become the fledgling River Otava. So was born Má vlast (My Country), the sublime cycle of six tone poems in which Smetana celebrates in music the landscape, legends and folklore of the Czech nation. Featuring the popular tone poems The Moldau and From Bohemia’s Woods and Fields, Má vlast is a rare and magical concert treat, particularly when conducted by Smetana’s countryman, Jakub Hrůša."

PERFORMERS
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra; conducted by Jakub Hrůša

    Hi Cath. Huailing and I really enjoyed this evening's concert. I now get why it's one of your favourites. I sat next to a young man who also declared it was his favourite! I might need to join the club:). Nice to meet Gillian too. I'm sure I will catch up with John and David another time. Thanks again. Rika

    Looking forward to tonight. The MSO forgot to send my ticket so picking up before concert, forget where I'm sitting, someone in the back.
