“Vltava”, also known as “The Moldau”, is Smetana’s best-known and most frequently performed symphonic poem. It was written in 1874 at a time when the composer was completely deaf. But it was not until 1879-80, with the completion of the entire cycle “Má vlast” (“My Fatherland”), that it was published in full score and a version for piano duet.
Hugh Macdonald’s new edition is based on the autograph score, with cross-references to the first edition and the composer’s own version for piano duet.
