Smetana, Bedrich
(1824-1884)
   A Czech composer who later in life suffered from hearing loss, possibly due to syphilis, and who reported * musical hallucinations in the form of two male voices singing in G major, as well as a chord in A's major. The chord in A's major, also referred to in the literature as a form of * tinnitus, appears as a piercing high-pitched tone in his symphony Ma Vlast (My Life).
