Smetana Ma V'last on Limited-Edition Hybrid 4.0 SACD from Mobile Fidelity
Conducted by Walter Susskind, rarely has a composition portrayed such beauty, adventure, peril, and glory as the St. Louis Symphony's interpretation of Bedrich Smetana's Ma V'last. Captured on Ultradisc UHR Surround SACD with GAIN 2 technology, every movement conjures up panoramic and vivid images of a classic hero's journey!
Bedrich Smetana is generally acknowledged as the true founder of Czech music. Recorded in the later years of the composer's life, Ma V'last is a cycle of six symphonic poems. While composing the cycle, Smetana was troubled by tinnitus and eventually shared the same bitter fate as Beethoven. His works often reflected the lilting character of his homeland and are harmonically and structurally influenced by the music of Liszt and Berlioz.
Now, hear it in both "true" surround as well as unprecedentedly transparent stereo thanks to Mobile Fidelity's Hybrid SACD.
