Smetana's MÁ VLAST is one of the exceptional musical works of the Nineteenth Century. It combines a programmatic idea with compositional innovations, especially in the field of form. This work deviates so much from traditional concepts that in musicological literature there is no unanimity concerning the structure of the single symphonic poems in that circle. At the same time the music is easy to grasp for the listener, a fact which is confirmed by its world-wide acceptance. The author discusses this discrepancy between analysis and listener's response.
