Smetana gave voice to the Czech desire for independence, so long yoked under the Habsburg Empire. But, away from his triumphantly nationalist operas and tone poems, in his quartets we encounter the fevered imagination of an artist fighting for his sanity. His example inspired Antonin Dvorák to bring Bohemian and Moravian elements into his own warmly vivacious chamber music, creating an outpouring of dance and song. In this programme we look at the emergence of a new nationalist identity in the rising city of Prague, as it cast off its Germanic traits, and explore the light and dark sides of the great Romantic figures.
