San Francisco Symphony Pursuits of Passion: Dvořák, Janáček, and More

Janáček's Taras Bulba is an epic tone poem depicting the exploits of an aging war hero and his two sons as they grapple with love, honor, and death in war. Hear it alongside Smetana's ode to the Vltava River, or the Moldau, where the music follows the river through Bohemian forests, fields, and meadows, past castles, ancient ruins, peasant weddings, and beautiful river nymphs.
