An afternoon that highlights Czech nationalism from the late nineteenth through the early twentieth centuries.  While close in chronology, the  styles of these works couldn’t be more different! However, beneath the variance in style is a thematic link around the use of folk melodies aimed to promote Czech identity during peaceful and turbulent times in European history where Nationalism was increasingly on the rise.
