Vltava Introduction


Vltava is one of Má vlast (My country/homeland), a set of six symphonic poems composed between 1874 and 1879 by the Czech composer Bedřich Smetana.


Vltava, also known by its German name Die Moldau (or The Moldau), was composed between 20 November and 8 December 1874 and was premiered on 4 April 1875. It is about 12 minutes long, and is in the key of E minor. In this piece, Smetana uses tone painting to evoke the sounds of one of Bohemia's great rivers.


The piece, Vltava, contains Smetana's most famous tune. It is an adaptation of the melody La Mantovana, attributed to the Italian renaissance tenor Giuseppe Cenci (also known as Giuseppino), which, in a borrowed Moldovan form, was also the basis for the Israelinational anthem, Hatikvah. The tune also appears in major in an old folk Czech songKočka leze dírou ("The Cat Crawls Through the Hole"), and Hanns Eisler used it for his "Song of the Moldau".
