CLASSICAL OPUS no.86

Bedrich Smetana: “Die Moldau” (Vltava)

ベッドジー スメタナ – 「モルダーウ」(ヴィルタヴァ)

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 14 minutes

The eminently romantic format of a symphonic poem wonderfully echoes the national aspirations of the 1860s.  Smetana paints in watercolor that is sober, but never austere.  Voracious for our attention, the pieces moves us with the elasticity of the title’s great river.

A REFLECTION

Wildly here, without control,

Nature reigns and rules the whole;

In that sober pensive mood,

Dearest to the feeling soul,

She plants the forest, pours the flood.
