It's improbable (or downright unfortunate) to spend time in Prague without hearing Smetana's symphonic poem Vltava (The Moldau), one of the best pieces of classical music by one of the greatest Czech composers of the 19th century. Smetana was the first composer to write music that was specifically Czech in character, influencing many future Czech composers such as Antonin Dvorak. After studying music in Prague, Smetana conducted the Bohemian Provisional Theater Orchestra, in which Dvorak played viola. The museum houses several artifacts of the composer, giving us a glimpse into his complicated life.
