In one of his last recording with the Czech Philharmonic, Jiri Belohlavek conducts a heartfelt account of Smetana's great set of symphonic poems: Ma Vlast (My Homeland).
This recording is the first album release by the Czech Philharmonic and their much-loved Chief Conductor, Jiri Belohlavek, following his passing in May 2017.
Smetana's Czech masterpiece has played a central role during the most important moments of the Czech Philharmonic's history.
This is an authoritative recording of Ma Vlast performed by musicians with
an innate understanding of the music of their homeland.
