Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Highly regarded as the Father of Czech music, Bedrich Smetana was a naturally gifted pianist, composer and choirmaster. A patriotic man, he loved incorporating the Czech's national dance, the polka, into his original compositions. Performing Smetana's polkas is Grammy-award winning pianist, András Schiff. The Hungarian-born Classical pianist is a master interpreter who breathes new life into this old, but still beloved music genre.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Teldec Studios, Berlin (01/1998).
