Detailed Foreword by Smetana authority Olga Mojžíšová (Cz/Eng/Ger)

Vltava, also known as The Moldau, is Smetana’s best-known and most frequently performed symphonic poem. It was written in 1874 at a time when the composer was completely deaf. But it was not until 1879-80, with the completion of the entire cycle Má vlast (My Fatherland), that it was published in full score and a version for Piano duet.

Hugh Macdonald’s new edition is based on the autograph score, with cross-references to the first edition and the composer’s own version for Piano duet.
