Album Summary

>Smetana, Bedrich : Tajemství (The Secret), opera, JB 1
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

For The Secret, the second of the three operas Eliska Krasnohorska and Smetana created together, Krasnohorska prepared a libretto based on her story set in the present day in the region beneath the Bezdez peak. At the same time, she underlined the plot with detailed drawing of characters, depicting in turn pig-headedness and emotionality, mulishness and loquaciousness, wit and caginess, devoutness and superstition, yearning for love and lucre alike. Smetana found in the gamut of observations of the national character the opportunity for a thorough compositional elaboration.
