Be washed down river with this beautiful rendition of Vltava

Performed and arranged by ABRSM examiner Gary Ryan, this piece is from the ABRSM Guitar syllabus and appears in the Grade 4 Guitar Exam Pieces book . Bedřich Smetana’s Má vlast (My Fatherland) is a cycle of six symphonic poems for orchestra devoted to different aspects of the landscape, history and legends of the composer’s native Bohemia. The second and most popular of the six, composed in 1874, traces the course of the country’s principal river, the Vltava. Are you learning to play the guitar?
