Notes & Reviews:

The major orchestral works of Bedrich Smetana are gathered together on 3 CDs for the first time. In addition to My Country, the cornerstone work of Czech national music, and Richard III, Wallenstein's Camp, and Hakon Jarl, the three symphonic poems from Smetana's "Swedish Period," we have an opportunity to hear the lesser-known Triumph Symphony in E major (Smetana's only work in this genre) as well as a selection of popular pieces including the Ceremonial Prelude in C major, which was played on the day that the cornerstone of the National Theater was laid (May 16, 1868).
