Conductor Xian Zhang transports you to the Bohemian countryside, conjuring picturesque landscapes and accents of patriotism. Composer-in-Residence Ana Sokolovič's Ringelspiel focuses on the idea of circularity, while Dvořák's graceful Romance, op. 11 showcases OSM Concertmaster Andrew Wan. Three pieces from Smetana’s Má Vlast cycle, including the immensely famous The Moldau, complete the picture.
