Portrait with Smetana belongs to the shortest among my compositions for orchestra and should as such be verbally introduced by an equally brief programme note. Actually, the title (shamelessly adapted – with a twist – from Heinrich Böll) IS the programme note.
I sincerely hope that when listening to the music a benign smile will form on the lips of those who know and love Moldau and the overture from The Bartered Bride.
