Composition of the Day 2015.03.12 09:00

Widely known as Die Moldau, Vltava is the second symphonic poem from Má vlast (My Fatherland). In this piece, Smetana uses tone painting to evoke the sounds of one of Bohemia's great rivers.

The composition describes the course of the Vltava, starting from the two small springs, the Cold and Warm Vltava, to the unification of both streams into a single current, the course of the Vltava through woods and meadows, through landscapes where a farmer's wedding is celebrated, the round dance of the mermaids in the night's moonshine: on the nearby rocks loom proud castles, palaces and ruins aloft. The Vltava swirls into the St. John's rapids; then it widens and flows toward Prague, past the Vyšehrad, and then majestically vanishes into the distance, ending at the Labe.
