Bedřich Smetana

Bedřich Smetana was born in Bohemia on 2 March 1824 and died in Prague on 12 May 1884. Generally regarded as the father of Czech music, he also wrote the work which most people regard as the father of Czech operas - The Bartered Bride. Nonetheless, his output was richly varied despite his deafness in later life.
