Bedrich Smetana Date/Place of Birth:  2 March, 1824 in Litomysl, Bohemia Personality:  A bespectacled, slender, grim and stoic-looking man, Smetana was one of the greatest Bohemian composers, a piano virtuoso, conductor and highly respected teacher. During his early adulthood, Smetana was hardly recognized as a musician and composer in his homeland. Most of his concerts were poorly attended and received lukewarm response from the public. Yet, there were not many new students enrolling at his music institute. During that time, he lived in such abject poverty, to the extent that he could not even own a piano. Subsequently, he tried to earn a living in Sweden. During the Sweden period, Smetana gained a reputation as a pianist/conductor and teacher which, however, eclipsed his stature as a composer. Besides that, he was active in promoting music of famous composers, ranging from Handel to Liszt. Therefore, he enjoyed his life very much in Sweden. Nevertheless, due to inexpressible yearning for performing his music in his beloved homeland, Smetana composed the first opera "The Brandenburgers in Bohemia" for the opera competition in Prague. As a result, it was received rapturously and he won the competition. He was then appointed as the principal conductor of Prague Provisional Theatre. Unfortunately, although his second opera "The Bartered Bride" was extremely popular during that time, there were many critics showing disdain for him and invariably gave unrepentantly bad opinions about his music, with the common reason that it showed Germanic influence and Wagnerism. Yet, the public was influenced blindly by those hostile critics. That was why Smetana was underappreciated in his homeland.

His most popular works, outside his native land, remain the opera The Bartered Bride and the cycle of tone poems Ma Vlast (My Fatherland), of which by far the most often played and recorded is The Moldau . Though few in number, his three chamber music compositions played an important role in his musical output. His two string quartets and the piano trio all held extra-musical significance for Smetana. His First String Quartet in E minor (1876) is entitled "From My Life" and musically chronicles his youth, loves and vocation, culminating with the onset of his deafness. The Second Quartet in D minor (1882) serves as sequel to the First, continuing his life story. Op. 14 , and

Modern History Sourcebook:
Music and Nationalism
Nationalism was the most successful political force of the 19th century. It emerged from two main sources: the Romantic exaltation of "feeling" and "identity" and the Liberal requirement that a legitimate state be based on a "people" rather than, for example, a dynasty, God, or imperial domination. Both Romantic "identity nationalism" and Liberal "civic nationalism" were essentially middle class movements. There were two main ways of exemplification: the French method of "inclusion" - essentially that anyone who accepted loyalty to the civil French state was a "citizen". In practice this meant the enforcement of a considerable degree of uniformity, for instance the destruction of regional languages. The German method, required by political circumstances, was to define the "nation" in ethnic terms. Ethnicity in practice came down to speaking German and sometimes just having a German name. For the largely German-speaking Slavic middle classes of Prague, Agram (Zagreb) etc. who took up the nationalist ideal, the ethnic aspect became even more important than it had been for the Germans.

    As important as composers Dvorak, Janacek and Martinu were, they owed much of their style to the great Czech composer Bedrich Smetana. He performed in his first string quartet at the age of five, and wrote his first symphony at eight, displaying a deep talent that was only to grow over the years. The humorous Opera

Bedøich Smetana
Bedøich Smetana se narodil roku 1824 v rodinì sládka zámeckého pivovaru Franti¹ka Smetany a Barbory jako jejich 11.dítì a zároveò první syn. Studoval v Jihlavì, Havlíèkovì Brodì a Plzni. Na studiích se seznámil s Karlem Havlíèkem Borovským, se kterým se scházel a¾ do jeho smrti. V Praze byl ¾ákem slepého Josefa Proksche, u nìho¾ studoval kompozici i virtuózní hru na klavír. V období studia mìl Bedøich Smetana roztr¾ky s otcem, který hudbu amatérsky podporoval, ale jako profesi ji odsuzoval, proto ho v ní ani finanènì nepodporoval.
Od poèátku své kariéry Smetana podvìdomì cítil, ¾e právì on mù¾e ve sféøe vrcholného umìní uskuteènit poslání pomoci probouzejícímu se obrozenému národu v hledání identity a v zápasu o vlastní osvobození. Bedøich Smetana patøil ke generaci umìlcù Národního divadla, je¾ ve vytvoøení národního umìní spatøovala nejvy¹¹í metu svého sna¾ení. V jeho sna¾ení ho podporoval i známý maïarský skladatel Ferenc Liszt. V roce 1848 zalo¾il hudební ústav, kde vyuèoval høe na klavír. V této dobì se seznamuje s Kateøinou Koláøovou, která se stala roku 1849 jeho ¾enou.

Also found in: Dictionary/thesaurus Encyclopedia 0.04 sec. write_ads(AdsNum, 0)
Bohemian composer. He established a Czech nationalist style in, for example, the operas (1866) and Dalibor (1868), and the symphonic suite The nationalist opera The Brandenburgers in Bohemia was a success in January 1866, although , for which he is most well known, was a failure in May. In 1872 he began composing his great cycle of symphonic poems, which is often performed in the Czech Republic at times of national celebration. In 1874 he suddenly became totally deaf, as the result of a syphilitic infection. He still continued to compose operas as well as the string quartet From my Life , with its strong autobiographical theme, depicting his love for his first wife and children (all of whom had died by 1859). At the beginning of the last movement, the onset of his deafness is portrayed by a piercing high note on the violin (representing the condition he had, where he could hear a high note in his ear all the time). In 1881 he had his last major success, when his great patriotic festival opera was premiered in Prague. In 1883 he was certified insane and in May 1884 was taken to an asylum, where he died.

His career was interrupted by a period of self-imposed exile in Sweden, after the political disappointments that followed the turmoil of 1848. He was instrumental in the establishment of Czech national opera and a Czech national style, in particular in his symphonic poems. He was deaf in later life, but continued to compose, an autobiographical element appearing in his string quartets.

I am your density: Crispin Glover’s Affinity for Smetana
Inarguably eccentric 43-year-old Hollyweird actor, Crispin Glover George McFly in the 1985 hit Back to the Future – was seen out and about in NYC recently to promote Beowulf , in which he voices Grendel , (and also to promote his own cinematic work called, "It Is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE"). Tuesday afternoon found him at the Met Museum browsing the collections. Glover has a passion for Czech castles, and apparently beds-down with his current girlfriend, Mara LaFontaine, in the former residence of late Czech composer Bedřich Smetana . WHUT? yes i live in smetana's old house, yes im a nerd, what of it, got a prob? "[Crispin Glover] patrolled the museum’s sumptuous period rooms with Ms. LaFontaine, looking for decorating tips for his 15-bedroom castle in the Czech Republic. (“ Bedrich Smetana wrote his last opera in the room I’m using as my den,” he said.)" Posted by opera chic on November 11, 2007 at 08:37 PM in Bedrich Smetana Permalink Comments (2) TrackBack (0) ...

      Smetana holds an important place in the development of musical nationalism in his native Bohemia, where he was born in 1824, the son of a master brewer in the service of Count Waldstein and others. His career was interrupted by a period of self-imposed exile in Sweden, after the political disappointments that followed the turmoil of 1848. He was instrumental in the establishment of Czech national opera and a Czech national style, in particular in his symphonic poems. He was deaf in later life, but continued to compose, an autobiographical element appearing in his string quartets. Operas The best known of Smetana's operas is The Bartered Bride, the overture of which makes a brilliant opening to any orchestral concert programme. His other operas have enjoyed less international success. Orchestral Music The best known of Smetana's orchestral works is the cycle of symphonic poems Ma vlast (My Country), a set of six works, of which Vltava (River Moldau), which follows the historic course of the river as it flows towards Prague, is the most frequently heard. Chamber Music Smetana wrote two string quartets, the first with the title "From my life". There is a G minor Piano Trio and two short pieces for violin and piano under the title From the Homeland.
