SMETANA The Moldau
MARTINŮ Concerto for Oboe
DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 7

Smetana, Dvořák, and Martinů are champions of Eastern European music, known for their use of folk music and references to their cultures. Smetana looks to the natural landscape, so influential to any culture, of his homeland in the symphonic poem The Moldau. The river running through the music of this tone poem paints the image of its path across the countryside. Martinů wrote his Concerto for Oboe for a Czech performer committed to performing more of his own cultural music. Dvořák, known for setting melodies inspired by the folk music found in his travels, looks west to his mentor Johannes Brahms, infusing his folk influences with a more tragic style found in Western European symphonies of the day.
