Although the Czech composer Bedrich Smetana went deaf towards the end of his life, he continued to compose with a passion. In an era in which Europe’s national consciousnesses were awakening, Smetana looked to his roots, drawing on personal experiences to compose the My Fatherland cycle, a work which transcends its deep local roots to address the whole of Mankind. The Athens State Orchestra performs the work in its entirety for the first time in its history under the baton of Charles Olivieri-Munroe.
