Bedřich Smetana (Czech pronunciation: (listen); 2 March 1824 – 12 May 1884) was a Czech composer who pioneered the development of a musical style that became closely identified with his country's aspirations to independent statehood. He has been regarded in his homeland as the father of Czech music.

For Smetana, like most composers, needed to eat; and to do so he was happy to make his own contribution towards satisfying the seemingly insatiable appetite of the bourgeois 19th-century public for piano music that they could perform at home. This will be quite a discovery for those who know the music of Bedrich Smetana only through his grand and nationalistic cycle of tone-poems, Ma Vlast, even if they are yet familiar with his more painfully intimate string quartets or his folkloristic operas. For Smetana, like most composers, needed to eat; and to do so he was happy to make his own contribution towards satisfying the seemingly insatiable appetite of the bourgeois 19th-century public for piano music that they could perform at home.

Sheet music B. Smetana. Czech Dances (České tance) originated in the final years of Smetana´s life. Bedřich Smetana composed Sketches (Skizzen) while he was experiencing one of the hard periods of his life when three out of his four daughters died. He reacted to this tragical incident with a great piano work – Piano Trio in G minor. They are small pieces of music, which Bedřich Smetana composed occasionally besides his study compositions – likewise, for example, Albumleaves (Stammbuch-Blätter) – while studying with Joseph Proksch.
