A fine set of musical quotes as jpegs and midi files are available on the corresponding French page. I've copied only the most important example; anyone with time to do the rest is most welcome. Also given are durations of the numbers.
Coughinink1 September UTC. I don't think the translation to "My Country" here is appropriate. I am not an expert on Czech, but in German which, while not a Slavic language has definite cultural ties that influence language the word Vaterland has a special meaning which is different from that of the word country. It tends to be more romantic, patriotic, etc. One would never refer to a foreign fatherland, for instance. It evokes a certain passion which is not present in the word country.
I imagine that Smetana wanted to evoke this passion in the piece. I can't figure out a good way to word it, or where it would go, though. I edited the wording on the 'High Castle' section about Smetana's composing deaf.
The piano manuscripts for the first movement were composed between and Smetana did not begin to noticeably lose hearing until the summer of and was completely deaf by the end of October. This means that The Moldau (Má Vlást) first movement was the only one to be mostly composed while he could still hear reasonably well. Vltava was also partially complete by the time that Smetana began to lose hearing. None of the symphonic The Moldau (Má Vlást) were published until he was deaf between and That picture of the score of 'Vltava' is wrong.
The image shows the piece in G major, whereas the piece is in fact in E minor; furthermore, there are some inaccurate representations of rhythm. I recommend the image be either edited or removed. The climax of the piece is in G major, by the way. In my studies of the Romantic and Classical music periods, I've seen some interesting things in compositions, but I'd like to confirm that this piece is really in E minor as opposed to G major, and moving to the relative minor over the progression of The Moldau (Má Vlást) symphonic poem?
The bulk of the work is in the G major tonality, and moves to the minor tonality at key points. If the majority of the work is in a major tonality, shouldn't it be noted in The Moldau (Má Vlást) appropriate section as such? If there are no objections, I will note that it is in E minor, but is mostly major in tone.
Given how the cite tag has been yoyoing in and out I thought it might be an idea to provide the reference myself. However, of my three recordings only one provides relevant commentary and that is rather different from what we have in the article.
The splendid and evocative melody which runs through the composition, like the river it depicts flowing through the Bohemian landscape derives from a Swedish folksong. Thats on page 11 of the booklet. Meanwhile on page 7, Kurt Honolka writes. I've flattened the umlauts into "e"s and the typography on the Germanic quotation marks are slightly different.
The French notes don't mention the origins of the theme and the Italian notes are a translation of Honalka's German. We've got enough evidence here to say that the theme was widely used in folk songs but it strikes me that actually calling the theme La Mantovana needs separate support and referencing.
