About

Hear the Philharmonia Orchestra perform Dvorak's Violin Concerto and Smetana's Ma vlast, dedicated to the city of Prague.

Dancing, daring, driving, Dvorak's Violin Concerto releases incredible energy, filled with folk-like melodies and infectious syncopated rhythms.

Smetana's Ma vlast is a set of six symphonic poems telling the story of Prague; its ancient high castle, Vysehrad; the winding journey of the river Vltava via woods, water nymphs and rapids; the tale of the warrior Sarka and her quest for revenge against all men; Bohemia's woods and fields; the Bohemian city of Tabor; and finally, the legendary mountain Blanik, where the knights led by St Wenceslas sleep ready to awake at the call of the country's gravest hour.
