    I know some people like slower compositions but I think the faster tempos are what the composers wanted.

    edit: Dear God I meant Ma Vlast. So much for a long night.

    Thank you. Never listened to Bab's that much but she sang beautifully. Was that the entire Hatikvah poem? Never heard it before but it was great to listen to.

    I'm also interested in the Chicago performance of Smetana. That was just a glimpse in that video but I could only describe it as...the color of the performance was incredible.....if that makes sense. Who was the conductor?

    That, too, was special (although, given that we have Riccardo Muti, it's too easy to take 'special' for granted).

    From the CSO:

    CHICAGO— Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša makes his Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO) debut in subscription concerts on Thursday, May 18, at 8:00 p.m., Friday, May 19, at 1:30 p.m., and Saturday, May 20, at 8:00 p.m. Hrůša leads the Orchestra in Czech composer Bedřich Smetana’s complete set of six symphonic poems that make up Má vlast (My Homeland) including one of Smetana’s most famous works, Vltava (The Moldau). The work will be performed without intermission. ...

    Hrůša is Chief Conductor Designate of the Bamberg Symphony, Permanent Guest Conductor of the Czech Philharmonic and Principal Guest Conductor of Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. Hrůša has also led a number of U.S. orchestras including the Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Boston Symphony. From 2009 to 2015, he served as Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Prague Philharmonia. In addition to his successful career as a conductor, Hrůša has released a number of recordings, including his critically acclaimed 2016 release of Smetana’s Má vlast with the Bamberg Symphony. The Thursday, May 18 concert is a part of CSO’s [ source ]​

    See, also, Wikipedia: Jakub Hrůša.

    It was a great experience. My wife and I have never managed to visit Eastern Europe, and attending a similar performance in Prague is high on our bucket list. :)
