Smetana: Moldau

This colourful tone poem is a musical depiction of the long river Moldau (Vltava). The main theme is a real classic, sweeping the listener along the stream through vallies and forests in the Bohemian landscape. Smetana lived and worked in Gothenburg 1856-1862 and his music was often performed in the city. This tradition is kept alive with the Gothenburg Symphony who has played the piece regularly since 1905, when the orchestra was formed.

Recorded for GSOplay 4 May 2017
