Ma Vlást, or My Fatherland, is an ode to Bedřich Smetana's Bohemian homeland in which the composer evokes the country’s breathtaking nature and rich history in warm romantic brush strokes. A rare opportunity to hear the complete cycle performed in full, when usually only the sweeping melodies of the second symphonic poem, Vltava (The Moldau) are performed on stage. On this occasion, living legend Daniel Barenboim is coming to Brussels with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. Founded by Barenboim in 1999, the orchestra brings together Jewish and Arab musicians in an intercultural dialogue. Together they will be infusing the concert hall with an air that is unmistakably Czech.
