Audio will be available later today.

Bedrich Smetana's childhood was infused with the culture of Bohemia: He found it an inexhaustible source of inspiration. From the fortress called Vysehrad, he took both patriotism and romance. You can hear that in his tone poem by the same name. Ondrej Kukal leads the Prague Radio Symphony in Smetana Hall.
