    Course start date:  Tue 20 Feb 2024

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  Katy Hamilton
    We’ve probably all heard Vltava in concert, and perhaps seen The Bartered Bride – but the worklist of Bedrich Smetana includes many more operas, instrumental pieces, chamber works and songs, and he is often regarded as the ‘inventor’ of Czech national music. In the year of his 200th birthday, we explore his life and compositions.
