A tune with several national affinities, one of them topical on this day.
Jascha Heifetz with Ben Gurion, 1951
Which recording is this Norman?
The Youtube poster identifies the conductor as Antoni Wit but does not identify the orchestra.
Probably the Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra.
The best recording of the Smetana I have heard is by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra under its then-director, the Czech, Zdeněk Mácal . It is on Telarc.
Thank you for reminding us the origin of this special melody
