Smetana Return to List of Composers
Bedrich Smetana was born in Czech Republic in 1824. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1884. Bedrich Smetana

Bedrich Smetana was the founder of the school of Czech musical nationalism. He was born in 1824 in Bohemia, of German-speaking parents. He studied music in Prague, and became a teacher and concert pianist. He became a fervent Nationalist, campaigning for independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1856 he moved to Sweden for 5 years. When back in Prague he turned to Opera, and The Bartered Bride is his most well-known. 

He wrote the cycle of Symphonic Poems Ma Vlast (My Fatherland) between 1872 and 1879.   One of these, Vltava (Die Moldau in German) is a portrait of the river that flows through Prague, and this is the most well known of his tone-poems.
