Czech It Out
Sunday, October 4, 6:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Botanical Garden, 2000 Convention Center Drive
Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884) is best known for his opera The Bartered Bride, the symphonic cycle Má vlast ("My Homeland"), and for his First String Quartet, From My Life. After becoming deaf, Smetana began composing the string quartet. It was to be his intimate confession, a work depicting the course of his life, "using four instruments speaking among themselves in something like a friendly circle." Following the nationalist example of Smetana, Antonín Dvorák (1841-1904) frequently employed aspects, specifically rhythms, of the folk music of Moravia and his native Bohemia. Dvorák's own style has been described as "the fullest recreation of a national idiom with that of the symphonic tradition, absorbing folk influences and finding effective ways of using them." Tony Seepersad, violin; Zachary Piper, violin; Gregory Falkenstein, viola; Michael Andrews, cello. Tickets online or at the door: $25 adults, $15 students (5-21) and seniors 65+, $5 children under 5

Paul Wittgenstein, a formidable pianist who lost his right arm in World War I, commissioned unforgettable works for piano left hand by Ravel and Prokofiev, among others, but it's Erich Korngold's wistful and sentimental Suite that roots itself in the fiery film music that solidified it as an instant classic.
