Vltava (The Moldau) is Smetana's most famous and frequently performed tone poem. It was written between 20 November and 8 December 1874, but only in 1879-1880 with the completion of the entire cycle Ma vlast, did the full score and his version for piano duet appear in print. Hugh Macdonald's new Urtext edition presents the composer's own version for piano duet.
