Smetana: Má Vlast
Czech Philharmonic, Jiří Bělohlávek
In memoriam Jiří Bělohlávek
The great Czech conductor and his beloved orchestra perform a definitive Má vlast.
In one of his last recording with the Czech Philharmonic, Jiří Bělohlávek conducts a heartfelt account of Smetana's great set of symphonic poems: Má vlast (My Homeland).
This recording is the first album release by the Czech Philharmonic and their much-loved chief conductor, Jiří Bělohlávek, following his passing in May 2017.
Smetana's Czech masterpiece has played a central role during the most important moments of the Czech Philharmonic's history.
This is an authoritative recording of Má vlast performed by musicians with an innate understanding of the music of their homeland.
