Bedrich Smetana

Author Code: OBSX

Born: Mar. 2, 1824 - Litomysl, Bohemia, Austria

Died: May 12, 1884 - Prague, Czechoslovakia

Smetana studied piano and violin from an early age, and was educated at Pilsen and Prague. In 1848, Franz Liszt provided him with funds to start his own music school. In 1856, he moved to Gothenburg, Sweden, where he performed and taught music. He returned to Prague in 1863 and opened a new music school. Having contracted syphillus, Smetana was completely deaf by 1874. Moreover, he was suffering from tinnitus which caused him constant irritation. He nevertheless continued to compose and in 1876 brought out From My Life, a string quartet. By 1883, his disease had progressed to the point where he was declared insane and committed to an asylum in Prague where he subsequently died. A great influence on Dvorak, Smetana is considered to be the first to compose music that was Czech in character. His works include numerous operas such as Brandenburgers in Bohemia, The Bartered Bride and The Two Widows, in addition to numerous chamber pieces and dances.
