“My Country”: Prague Spring kicks off with performance by German orchestra founded by WWII expellees

In keeping with tradition, the annual Prague Spring classical music
festival kicked off on Sunday with a rendition of Bedřich Smetana’s epic
cycle Má vlast, or My Country, which portrays the history, legends and
landscape of the composer’s homeland. What makes this performance
particularly poignant is that it was performed by a German orchestra formed
by musicians expelled from Czechoslovakia after WWII.
