Corbett Dunthorpe Sunday, November the 20th at four o'clock SMETANA: FROM MY LIFE From Smetana's letter about this quartet: FIRST MOVEMENT—My propensity for art in the early days. Preponderance of romantic sentiment, indiscribable longing for something which I could not express or even definitely imagine, and also a foreboding, as it were, of my coming misery. SECOND MOVEMENT—leads me into reminiscences of the merry life of my youth, when i, as a composer of dancing pieces, lavished my music upon the young people, when i myself was widely known as a passionate lover of dancing. THIRD MOVEMENT—calls up my memories of the happiness of my first love for a girl who later became my faithful wife. FOURTH MOVEMENT—Realization of the element of national music; joy over this success which is interrupted by the fatal catastrophe; beginning deafness; outlook into a sad future; passing hope of recovery yet, recollecting the early stages of my career, a feeling of deep sorrow.
