Bedrich Smetana: Swedish Symphonic Poems - Richard III, Wallenstein's Camp, Hakon Jarl

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The symphonic poems Smetana wrote during his stay in Sweden were composed during a pivotal time in
his life. Financial prospects at first seemed better in Gothenburg than in his native country, while the dual
influences of Berlioz and Liszt were informing the direction of his music. Richard III is not a programmatic
drama, but focuses instead on the haunting scene before the Battle of Bosworth in Shakespeare’s play.
Wallenstein’s Camp is symphonically structured, while Hakon Jarl dramatises the life of the tyrannical Viking
warrior with memorable flair.
