In March 2024 we celebrate Bedrich Smetana’s 200th birthday. The Czech composer is best known for his cycle of tone poems called Má Vlast (My Fatherland). Our concert, Slavic Soul, will feature two of these tone poems, the grand musical description of Prague’s famous castle Vysehrad as well as the most beloved Vltava (The Moldau). Completing the program are Tchaikovsky’s hyper-romantic Romeo and Juliet as well as Clara Schumann’s beautiful
Piano Concerto, performed by Ukrainian-American pianist Anna Shelest.
