About

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Czech Republic, six prominent contemporary Czech composers wrote fresh versions of the movements from Bedřich Smetana’s symphonic cycle, “Má Vlast – My Country.” Renowned, award-winning Czech television music program director, Jakub Kořínek, created unique visualizations for this program based on looking at an empty world at times of quarantine and isolation caused by the pandemic.
