Here's an easy to play tutorial and sheet music to play the Vltava (Moldau) Theme from Smetana's Homeland on your violin.
Click here to download the sheet music. I made this arrangement for two violins for a gig in which I played Czech tunes for an evening with two violins.
Watch this video in which I teach you how to play this piece:

Thanks so much. I will download the music. There is a funny story of which I am always reminded when I hear this piece. I have a an American friend who is Jewish, and her daughter married a Czech man. At the wedding in his village, the band played the Moldau. All of the Czech folk at the wedding were pleased to hear this iconic Czech piece, and all the Jews from the brides side were please because they thought the band was playing Hatikvah, the Israeli national anthem, which sounds a bit like the Moldau.
