The Moldau is the Czech national epic in music. The destination of the river is the city of Prague, which is not just the capital city of the country, it also represents the manifestation of the hopes and aspirations of the people of that country. While still containing all of the original sections, this edition has been shortened by about three minutes through some very seamless and judicious editing. Some of the more technical passages have also been simplified to allow younger players a chance to perform this magnificent work.
