  • Title: Vitezslava Kapralova | Biography
    Descriptive info: home.. By Karla Hartl.. For a full-fledged, English language biography of the composer see.. The Kapralova Companion.. Vítezslava Kaprálová was born on January 24, 1915 in Brno, the provincial capital of Moravia (now Czech Republic), which was then still a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.. She was an only child who grew up in a musical family: her mother, Vítezslava Kaprálová (1890-1973), née Uhlírová, was a classically trained singer; her father, Václav Kaprál (1889-1947), was a composer, writer, music critic, and teacher who had studied with Janácek.. Kaprálová started composing at nine under the guidance of her father.. At fifteen, she entered Brno Conservatory where she studied composition with Vilém Petrzelka and conducting with Vilém Steinman and Zdenek Chalabala.. Her creative output at the Conservatory included.. Five Pieces for Piano,.. two violin pieces.. Legend.. Burlesque,.. a remarkable piano sonata.. Sonata appassionata,.. Piano Concerto in D minor,.. Kaprálová's graduation piece which she conducted herself at its premiere in Brno in 1935.. It was her first public appearance as conductor and she made quite an impression upon the local audience.. [1].. After the graduation, she spent the summer at her family retreat in the village of Tri Studne, where she sketched her first and only string quartet, an ingenious work that "blends something of the spirit of Janácek's.. Intimate Letters.. with a free chromaticism reminiscent of Berg's op.. 3.. ".. [2].. In the fall of 1935 Kaprálová moved to Prague, where she hoped to advance her technical skills at the Prague Conservatory.. She was accepted into the masterclasses of the composer Vítezslav Novák and the conductor Václav Talich, then the foremost personalities of Prague's musical life, and her music was soon programmed by two most important societies of contemporary music in Prague in the 1930s: Prítomnost (The Presence) and Umelecká Beseda (The Artistic Forum).. At the Prague Conservatory Kaprálová further developed her style that combined the best of Czech modernism with elements of French impressionism and German expressionism in a highly original synthesis.. The music Kapralova composed in Prague included the critically acclaimed songs.. Forever.. Waving Farewell,.. and her best known piano work.. April Preludes.. She graduated from the Prague Conservatory with a composition for large orchestra, the.. Military Sinfonietta.. Composed in 1936-37, at a time of political unrest in her homeland, the work was chosen by the National Women's Council to be premiered at their annual gala concert in the presence of Edvard Benes, President of the Czechoslovak Republic, to whom the work was dedicated.. The premiere took place at the Lucerna Hall in Prague on November 26, 1937.. Kaprálová conducted the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra - the first woman to do so (she held this record until 2009 when it was broken by Marin Alsop).. Witnesses recalled how highly unusual it was for the orchestra to perform under the baton of such a young conductor, especially when that conductor happened to be a woman, but Kaprálová's professionalism and her energetic gestures were persuasive arguments even for such experienced players.. After the first few bars of the score, she won over the hundred-piece, all male, orchestra completely.. [3].. In October 1937, a month before the premiere of her.. Military Sinfonietta,.. Kaprálová moved to Paris to study conducting with Charles Munch at the Ecole normale de musique.. She originally planned to study with Felix Weingartner in Vienna, but on Karel Bohuslav Jirak's recommendation and after meeting with Bohuslav Martinu earlier that year during his short visit to Prague from Paris, she decided instead to seek a government scholarship to study in France.. Paris was to broaden Kaprálová's intellectual horizons.. The city's musical life in general and the concerts of La Societé de la Musique Contemporaine (Triton) in particular were immensely important for her development as an artist.. Here she heard the latest works of Bartók, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Prokofiev, Milhaud, Honegger, and Martinu, and later also saw her own works performed.. She was particularly attracted to the music of Stravinsky, and her.. Suita rustica.. from 1938, a large orchestral work commissioned by Universal Edition (London), pays homage to his.. Petruschka.. Of course, among the new impulses and influences that helped develop Kaprálová's voice was also the music of Bohuslav Martinu who became for the next two years her mentor.. Their relationship was not a typical teacher-pupil relationship but rather one of two colleagues who spent hours arguing the tenets of composition and analyzing each other's works.. Kaprálová's only neoclassical work -.. Partita for Piano and String Orchestra.. - can be considered a direct result of those discussions.. Kaprálová's charismatic personality, beauty, and immense passion for life inspired the aging Martinu.. His.. Tre ricercari,.. the intimate String Quartet No.. 5,.. [4].. and the powerful.. Double Concerto,.. all from 1938, reveal some of the strong emotions stirred in him by Kaprálová.. [5].. Yet he also admired her music and recommended to one of his publishers, Michel Dillard of La Sirène Editions Musicales, to publish Kaprálová's.. Variations sur le carillon de l'église St-Etienne du Mont,.. op.. 16, an ingenious work for keyboard she had completed several months earlier.. Although Kaprálová had already been published in Czechoslovakia, this was her first international recognition.. Martinu also had faith in her abilities as a conductor - so much so that he had her conduct a performance of his Harpsichord Concerto in Paris, on June 2, 1938, with Marcelle de Lacour as soloist.. Two weeks later Kaprálová arrived in London for the 1938 ISCM Festival as one of the four finalists who were selected by the Festival's international jury to represent contemporary Czech music.. [6].. She opened the event by conducting the BBC Orchestra in her Military Sinfonietta at Queen's Hall on June 17.. Her performance generated quite a bit of excitement, and both her composition and performance earned her respect and applause from the BBC Orchestra, the audience, and the critics.. [7].. She received excellent reviews in dailies and journals that covered the event, including.. Time Magazine.. Musical Opinion.. [8].. After such two eventful semesters abroad Kaprálová was eager to return home for the summer holidays.. She could not know that this was to be her last visit to her homeland.. When she returned to Paris in January 1939, the world she knew was already disintegrating.. In February she composed her last work for violin and piano,.. Elegy,.. to commemorate the life and work of the Czech writer Karel Capek whose passing on Christmas Day 1938 was mourned by the whole nation.. A month later, on March 15, German soldiers marched in the streets of Prague.. Three days after the forceful annexation of her country, Kaprálová, emotionally exhausted, began working on her.. Concertino for Violin, Clarinet and Orchestra.. The dark, despairing work.. [9].. contrasts sharply with Kaprálová's energetic.. composed just two years earlier, still so full of youthful optimism.. Separated by war from her loved ones, Kaprálová was now looking to Martinu for all of her emotional support.. The two began planning their future together as far  ...   assisting scholarly research,.. [25].. publishing an online periodical,.. Kapralova Society Journal,.. and maintaining a website, kapralova.. org.. Notes:.. This text is based on my articles "The Voice of an Artist: The Life and Music of Vitezslava Kapralova," published in..

Tempo.. 214 (October 2000): 60.. Jirí Macek, Vítezslava Kaprálová (Prague: Svaz cs.. 133-34.. The original 12-page autograph sketch contains a number of whimsical cartoons in the composer's hand expressing his thoughts about Kaprálová.. In his letter dated February 25, 1958, Martinu admitted to his first biographer Milos Safránek: "[T]he Double Concerto [has], of course, a very private character, but only I know about that and all other conjectures are only [smoke]screen.. " Milos Safránek,.. Bohuslav Martinu: His Life and Works.. (London: Allan Wingate, 1962), p.. 184.. The other three were Viktor Ullmann, Isa Krejcí, and Václav Bartos.. Bohuslav Martinu, "Mezinárodní festival v Londýne,".. Lidové noviny,.. June 28, 1938, 7.. The reviewer for.. was Havergal Brian.. He wrote: "The first work played and broadcast at the recent festival, a Military Sinfonietta, by Miss Vítezslava Kaprálová of Czechoslovakia, proved an amazing piece of orchestral writing: it was also of logical and well balanced design.. " In: Havergal Brian, "The Nature of Modern Music.. Contemporary Music Festival,".. (July 1938): 858.. The success of Kaprálová's music at this prestigious international event is all the more so remarkable when we realize that participating composers also included Bartók, Britten, Copland, Hindemith, Messiaen, and Webern.. Just before the last two measures of the autograph sketch of her Concertino, Kaprálová scribbled the following two references:.. Psalm 57.. Job 30, 26.. ("Yet when I hoped for good, evil came; when I looked for light, then came darkness").. Jirí Mucha, (1915-1991), Czech writer, son of the art-nouveau painter Alfons Mucha.. His autobiography, published in Prague in 1988, is centred on the years Mucha spent in Paris before the war, his relationship with Kaprálová, and her affair with Martinu.. The words of the poem by Petr Kricka, written as a letter from a man to his lover who has just rejected him, are paraphrased in Kaprálová's French translation on the back of the song manuscript as follows: "You said "no.. " So be it.. It was fate that separated us.. I regret it but see that you are happy - and accept it.. I don't judge who's to blame, whose loss is bigger.. Yesterday there were two paths, today there is just one.. Who knows? Perhaps, you will return one day.. The Lord God is a great artist and His intentions unfathomable.. " Perhaps.. Letter.. was meant to be Kaprálová's farewell to her relationship with Martinu and to provide some closure; yet, the poem seems to leave the door open to other possibilities.. [The song's autograph has been published in: Jirí Mucha,.. Podivné lásky.. (Prague: Mladá fronta, 1988), pp.. 389-392.. ]..

(Sung into the Distance), op.. 22, and several other songs, including the composer's last song.. Dopis.. (Letter), of 1940, and.. Leden.. (January), of 1933, for soprano/tenor, flute, two violins, violoncello, and piano.. The latter composition is a remarkable but an entirely unknown work of Kaprálová until 2003 when it was given its very first performance by the faculty members of the University of Michigan School of Music.. The disc features her piano works Five Piano Pieces, Sonata appassionata, op.. 6, April Preludes, op.. 13, Variations sur le carillon the l'église Saint-Etienne du Mont, op.. 16, Little Song, and Kaprálová's three piano and violin pieces: Legend and Burlesque, op.. 3, and Elegy (1939)..

From a review by Michelle Latour for the IAWM Journal 18, no.. 2 (Fall 2012): 32-33.. Edited by Karla Hartl and Erik Entwistle.. Lexington Books, USA, 2011, 228 stran.. ] Editory knihy jsou Karla Hartl a Erik Entwistle.. Karla Hartl, absolventka pra ské Univerzity Karlovy a univerzity v Torontu, se autorsky ujala úvodní ivotopisné kapitoly a v ech dokumentacne bohatých príspevku soustredených do druhého oddílu knihy.. Jsou venovány ivotopisu Kaprálové, zpracovanému tentokrát v chronologickém poradí s bohatým vysvetlujícím a komentujícím poznámkovým aparátem.. Dlu no podotknout, e je obdivuhodné, kolik detailních poznatku ze ivota Kaprálové Karla Hartl soustredila a je te obdivuhodnej í jsou její poznámky, rozestrené na plo e plných trinácti tiskových stran, pracující velmi casto s dosud neznámými prameny z archivu soukromých osob.. Stejne koncipuje autorka i katalog díla Vítezslavy Kaprálové, k nemu lze vyslovit stejne obdivné stanovisko.. Následuje podobne obsa ná bibliografie a seznam publikovaných del Kaprálové a diskografie, v e na nále ité dokumentacní úrovni a zdurazneme bez chyb, presto e je text mnohdy a cesko-anglický (v echny citace apod.. jsou uvedeny v puvodním, tedy ceském jazyce!).. Druhý z editoru, Erik Entwistle, je muzikolog se zamerením na klavírní literaturu a s blízkým vztahem k ceské hudbe (jeho disertacní práce na University of California, Santa Barbara, byla venována Bohuslavu Martinu).. Jeho rozsáhlá kapitola v knize o Kaprálové (42 stran) se zabývá podrobne a zasvecene skladatelcinou klavírní tvorbou jak z hlediska vlivu, je na Kaprálovou pusobily, tak posléze se zduraznením jejího skladatelského prínosu.. Kapitola je vybavena mno stvím notových príkladu, na nich Entwistle své poznatky dokumentuje.. Dal í studie v první cásti knihy pocházejí rovne od zahranicních odborníku venujících se mimo jiné ceské hudbe.. Timothy Cheek, profesor na univerzite v Michiganu, vydal nekolik knih zabývajících se ceskou vokální tvorbou od Smetanovy Prodané nevesty a po libreta Janáckových oper.. Vokální tvorbou Vítezslavy Kaprálové se zabývá u del í dobu, jak dokazuje jeho autorský a interpretacní podíl na CD se skladatelcinými písnemi, vydaným Supraphonem.. Ve své nejnovej í studii publikované v knize The Kaprálová Companion tyto dlouhodobe získávané poznatky presvedcivým zpusobem sumarizuje.. Podobne reprezentativní jsou i dve kapitoly, jejich autorkou je Judith Mabary z University of Missouri-Columbia.. I ona se zabývá dlouhodobe problematikou bezprostredne související s ceskou hudbou.. Její disertacní práce byla venována melodramu a ceským príspevkum k nemu a v knize o Kaprálové Mabary nabízí zajímavý pohled na vyu ití melodramatických prvku ve skladatelcine díle a nadto studi venovanou orchestrálním dílum Vojenská symfonietta, Partita a Suita rustica.. Jak je z predchozích rádku zrejmé, je kniha výsledkem bádání prevá ne zahranicních odborníku, pouze studii o Vítezslave Kaprálové v kontextu ceské hudby napsala profesorka JAMU Jindri ka Bártová, specializující se na ceskou hudbu 20.. Vítezslava Kaprálová se tak dostala mezi ty nemnohé ceské skladatele, o nich vy ly monografie v cizím jazyce, a to nejen monografie prelo ené z puvodní ceské predlohy, ale sepsané v cizine, tedy Dvoráka, Janácka a Martinu..

From a review by Monika Hola for Opus Musicum 44, no.. 5 (November 2012).. Alice Rajnohova, piano; Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra; Tomas Hanus, conductor.. Radioservis CR0577-2 (2011).. The 2011 compact disc recording featuring four of Vitezslava Kapralova s piano works, one for piano with orchestra and three for solo piano, is an important addition to the growing oeuvre of CDs showcasing Kapralova s compositions.. Not only does this recording contain representative works from the span of her career, but it also marks the first recording of her Piano Concerto in D Minor.. The entire CD is expertly played by pianist Alice Rajnohova and matched in passion and precision by the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Tomas Hanus.. The CD opens with Piano Concerto in D Minor, Opus 7, which has three movements and was composed in 1935 when Kapralova was a mere twenty years old.. ] Movement I,.. (track one), earns its enthusiastic title by being a dramatic and bold movement with a highly virtuosic piano part, practically utilizing the entire keyboard.. Ms.. Rajnohova is simply wonderful in this movement, and the orchestra displays a tight ensemble full of lush and beautiful moments.. Here the listener is taken on an emotional roller coaster with musical highs and lows, running the gamut from sweeping, bold gestures to haunting, melancholy utterances.. Piano and orchestra swirl continuously with a seamless interweaving of textures.. I especially loved how Kapralova ended the movement, beginning with bombastic, octave chordal passages, coupled with unexpected harmonic shifts in the piano, and then rushing into a trill in the piano, which in turn is answered by the orchestra.. It then builds in drama and intensity to a forceful and triumphant conclusion.. The second movement,.. (track two), completely shifts gears with a dark and menacing melody heard in the low strings.. At only three minutes long and thirty-five measures in length, this solemn and pensive movement is incredibly interesting and well executed by both piano and orchestra.. This movement primarily features polyphonic development, yet the overall texture remains sparse with moments of dissonance.. The piano solo remains reserved yet is still highly emotional.. The end of the.. is a processional-like dance that splinters off, only to drive right into the final movement without stopping.. Track three,.. Allegro,.. begins with an almost frenzied feeling, which soon melts into more subdued music.. This movement is full of humor, contrasting sharply with the preceding two movements.. From the late romantic yearning of movement I, to the sparse contrapuntal development of movement II, movement III showcases neoclassical elements and lush instrumentation.. ] Track seven,.. Variations sur le carillon de l église St-Étienne du Mont,.. 16 (1938), is by far my favorite number of the entire CD, not only because Rajnohova expertly captures the myriad of exquisite moods, but also because this work captures Kapralova s evolving and diverse compositional style at her finest.. This one movement work, comprising of a theme and six variations, was written while Kapralova was furthering her studies in Paris and was inspired in general by the culturally cosmopolitan city itself, and specifically, by the church bells she could hear ringing from her apartment window.. ] Despite the brevity of the theme, the piece is full of delightful surprises, abrupt contrasts, and highly dramatic intensity.. Again Rajnohova is to be commended for her ability to master this piece as Kapralova adeptly exploits the possibilities of the keyboard, predominantly through the juxtaposition of unexpected elements such as melodic and percussive sections, consonant and dissonant harmonies, introverted and extroverted moods, and bell-like sparse and densely polyphonic textures.. ] In addition to the artful mastery of both Alice Rajnohova and the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra, the liner notes are insightful and well written.. They include a brief background on Vitezslava Kapralova, biographical information on Ms.. Rajnohova, the orchestra and its conductor, Tomas Hanus, and analyses of each work featured on the compact disc.. For admirers and enthusiasts of Vitezslava Kapralova s music, this is a recording not to miss.. From a review by Michelle Latour for the Kapralova Society Journal 10, no.. 2 (Fall 2012): 10-11..

Lexington Books, Lanham, Boulder, New York, Toronto, Plymouth.. November 2011.. This immensely valuable work deserves a place on the shelves of every serious follower of Czech music.. What adds inestimably to the value of the book is the quality of the contributors.. Packed with vital information about a little known but important composer of the first half of the 20th century, this volume should stand as a signpost for future scholars to delve into a surprisingly important life.. From a review by Peter Herbert for the Dvorak Society for Czech and Slovak Music Newsletter, 100 (July 2012): 11.. Vitezslava Kapralova: Brani per pianoforte.. Alice Rajnohova, Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra, Tomas Hanus.. ] Un cenno ora agli interpreti, iniziando dalla pianista Alice Rajhohova, che ha curato anche le note illustrative del cd, indiscussa protagonista di una registrazione effettuata interamente dal vivo.. La sua bravura si puo apprezzare sia nel concerto iniziale, quando ricopre il ruolo di sloista, sia nei brani per pianoforte solo.. In entrambi i casi evidenzia grande raffinatezza ed una estrema sensibilita, trasmettendo notevoli emozioni.. Molto buona anche la prova della Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra, diretta da Tomas Hanus, che si dimostra compagine di sicura affidabilita, contribuendo ad evidenziare il valore di una compositrice che, pur essendo vissuta appena 25 anni, ha lasciato una forte impronta nella musica del secolo scorso.. From a review by Marco del Vaglio for Nuova e Nostre, May 20, 2012.. Jeune femme oubliée trouve compagnon idéal.. Karla Hartl, Erik Entwistle (dir.. ), The Kaprálová Companion, Lexington Books, Décembre 2011-228 pages.. ] Jindri ka Bartová signe un excellent article replaçant Kaprálová dans le contexte de la musique tchèque de son époque.. Tout l intérêt du travail de la musicologue réside dans le fait qu elle ne tient (heureusement) pas uniquement compte des « grandes figures » nationales mais qu elle considère surtout les artistes qui ont influencé directement ou non la jeune Vitezslava.. Beaucoup ont été élèves de Janácek (comme Václav Kaprál, père de Kaprálová, basé à Brno), même si certains ont pris leurs distances par rapport à la pensée et à l esthétique du compositeur de Jenufa.. Dans son analyse des pages pianistique de « Vitulka », Erik Entwistle examine lui aussi les uvres paternelles pour trouver les traces tangibles d une influence naturelle.. Allant bien plus loin que l étude que Ludvík Kundera (ami de Kaprálová et père de Milan Kundera) avait consacré au même sujet dans le livre de Premysl, Entwistle explore avec brio un répertoire bigarré contenant quelques chefs-d uvre (dont les Préludes d avril et les Variations sur le carillon de Saint-Etienne du Mont).. Judith Mabary signe quant à elle deux articles tout aussi passionnants.. Le premier concerne les essais et intentions de Kaprálová en matière de mélodrame, genre souvent abordé par les Tchèques, de Benda au jeune Martinu en passant par Du ek si la jeune femme ne concrétisa qu un seul de ses projets dans le genre, d autres pièces furent transformées en mélodies géniales.. Dans sa seconde étude, Mabary analyse les trois pièces orchestrales importantes que sont la Vojenská Symfonieta [Sinfonietta militaire], la Partita op.. 20 composée sous le tutorat de Martinu et la Suita Rustica, page d inspiration folklorique influencée par Stravinsky (non-éditée à ce jour).. S il est difficile de faire le tour complet de la question en un peu moins de trente pages, la musicologue pose de solides bases pour les futures recherches analytiques autour de ces uvres.. From a.. review.. by Nicolas Derny for forumopera.. com, April 16, 2012.. Premiere Recording of Kapralova's Piano Concerto.. ] The latest of these CDs  ...   it is a haunting and disturbing journey for the listener.. Although Bure ová and Cheek use completely different colors and timbres, they perfectly match each other s emotional intent in this fascinating juxtaposition.. This is followed with.. Nav dy,.. 12 (Forever), on tracks twelve through fourteen.. Composed between 1936 1937, this cycle uses the poetry of Jan Carek (1898 1966) for the first two songs and of Seifert for the final song.. The first piece of the set, also entitled Nav dy, is in ABA form, and opens with a slow and sustained vocal line that requires excellent breath control.. This is followed with Cím je muj al (What is my grief), which contrasts between beautiful lyricism and parlando passages for the singer, and is expertly negotiated by Bure ová.. The final song of the set, Ruce (Hands), illustrates the ecstasy of a wedding night.. The accompaniment highlights an almost impressionistic quality that is interwoven with a syllabic vocal melody.. It ends dramatically with a substantial and virtuosic postlude by Cheek and a diva-worthy melismatic phrase expressed joyously by Bure ová.. The next three tracks are stand-alone songs, beginning with.. Sbohem a átecek,.. 14 (Waving farewell, from 1937).. At over six minutes in length, this is Kaprálová s longest song, befitting for her farewell to Prague before embarking on her journey to Paris to study at the École normale de musique and with Martinu.. According to Cheek, the entire song is based on a falling major second that appears in the first word, sbohem (farewell).. This motif, then, fills the entire song with farewells.. The beautiful and exquisite poetry, by Vítezslav Nezval (1900 1958), matched in splendor of music, results in a complicated and bittersweet farewell, both strikingly performed by Cheek and Bure ová.. Koleda.. (Carol), also from 1937, is a concise and entertaining song, dedicated to my feathered friends.. Most memorable is Bure ová s facility with mimicking the many animal noises Kaprálová ingeniously employs.. Between 1936 1939, Kaprálová composed the song collection.. Vteriny,.. 18 (Seconds), which on the CD includes tracks eighteen through twenty-five.. This interesting compilation of songs was written in Paris, Brno, and Prague for friends, family members, or special occasions.. One of my favorite recordings on this CD is the first song of the collection, Bílým átkem mává kdo se loucí (With a white kerchief he waves).. It displays an exquisite marriage between language and melodic rhythm.. Bure ová s last note is extraordinary, and she is to be commended in her ability to sustain a pianissimo note so effortlessly in a problematic part of the voice.. Another highlight of this set is the third song, track eighteen, entitled Písen milostná (Love song).. In this 1938 composition, dedicated to a friend on her wedding, Cheek adeptly portrays the three-hundred chirping birds with exhuberant chaos as described in Franti ek Su il s (1804 1868) Moravian folk poem.. This is followed with the three song cycle,.. Zpíváno do dálky,.. 22 (Sung into the distance, from 1939).. The poetry is by Viktor Kripner (1906 1956), and the songs are also dedicated to him.. This magnificent and highly contrasting set exemplifies Kaprálová s natural gift with prosody, and her innate ability to write piano accompaniments that provide observations on the text.. Bure ová and Cheek present a superb collaboration throughout the entire set, displaying lovely interplay between voice and piano and exquisitely interweaving textures.. Dana Bure ová and Timothy Cheek provide flawless performances in this important addition to the recordings of Vítezslava Kaprálová.. Both Bure ová and Cheek display expertise in portraying the many intricate and complicated facets of this hauntingly beautiful vocal music, and their CD is a must-have for anyone interested in the music of Kaprálová.. The CD tracks (in mp3 format) are offered through ITunes and amazon.. From a review by Michelle Latour for Kapralova Society Journal 9, no.. 2 (2011): 10-11.. Daniel Weeks.. The romantic intensity of all the songs is noteworthy; all these composers avoided the conventional, and the whole group carries an intriguing interior mood, often expressed in one kind of symbolic language or another [.. The most experimental songs are those by Kaprálová, who died at age 25 and whose works are yielding unsuspected riches; she expanded an Impressionist language into a slightly polytonal realm..

From a review by Doundou Tchil,.. classical-iconoclast.. August 14, 2011.. Compositrici da primato nella musica cameristica.. La Centaur Records propone un cd rivolto a prestigiose figure della musica al femminile.. Il loro perfetto affiatamento, inoltre, crea una giusta atmosfera, che restituisce la forte intensita, legata a testi per la maggior parte nostalgici e struggenti, contribuendo anche ad evidenziare i diversi stili delle quattro compositrici, il che rende il cd, nel suo complesso, imperdibile per tutti gli appassionati di musica cameristica.. From a review by Marco del Vaglio for AGIRE, June 2011.. A partire dalla fine dell Ottocento, e per tutto il Novecento, la storia della musica è ricca di figure femminili di notevole spessore, la cui notorietà non si limitò al paese di nascita, ma raggiunse tutto il mondo.. Ce lo ricorda un cd della Centaur Records, intitolato Women of First , che ha affidato al tenore Daniel Weeks e alla pianista Naomi Oliphant quattro brani, di altrettante compositrici, distintesi in un settore considerato di stretta competenza maschile L apertura è dedicata a Vitezlava Kaprálová (Brno, 1915-Montpellier, 1940) che, nonostante la brevissima esistenza, stroncata dalla tisi, ancora oggi rimane un saldo punto di riferimento della musica ceca e detiene diversi primati.. Fu, infatti, la prima donna a diplomarsi in composizione e direzione d orchestra, nonché la prima rappresentante femminile a condurre l Orchestra Filarmonica Ceca e l Orchestra della BBC, in quest ultimo caso durante il Festival di Musica Contemporanea che si svolse a Londra nel 1938.. Nel disco è presente con Forever, op.. 12 (1936-37), tre brevi pezzi scritti nel 1936-37 su liriche dei poeti cechi Jan Carek e Jaroslav Seifert (premio Nobel per la letteratura nel 1984), in cui vi è quasi un presagio di una fine che sarebbe avvenuta lontana da casa.. Seconda autrice in programma, Grazyna Bacewicz (1909-1969), in assoluto la prima compositrice polacca ad ottenere riconoscimenti nazionali ed internazionali, cosa ancora più rimarchevole, se consideriamo il suo stile musicale, molto moderno e quindi in aperto contrasto con il regime stalinista.. Alla sua produzione appartengono i Tre canti per tenore ed orchestra, risalenti al 1938, su testi di un ignoto autore arabo, poi arrangiati nel 1958 nella versione per tenore e pianoforte registrata nel cd.. Anche la statunitense Amy Cheney (1867-1944) meriterebbe un articolo a parte per la sua lunga carriera.. Pianista prodigio, interruppe l attività di solista dopo il matrimonio con il fisico Henry Beach, continuando quella di compositrice, per tornare alla ribalta concertistica una volta diventata vedova.. A lei si deve, fra l altro, la prima sinfonia scritta da una donna americana (pubblicata sotto lo pseudonimo Mrs.. H.. Il disco della Centaur mette in evidenza le Three Browning Songs, scritte tra il 1895 ed il 1900 attingendo alla produzione poetica del britannico Robert Browning.. La chiusura dell incisione è sotto il segno di Lili Boulanger (1893-1918), prima donna a vincere il prestigiosissimo Prix de Rome nel 1913.. Sorella della leggendaria Nadia, docente che formò generazioni di compositori, ebbe una carriera luminosa, prematuramente interrotta a causa della sindrome di Crohn, una malattia rara e devastante, diagnosticatale da bambina, che la accompagnò per tutta la sua brevissima esistenza.. Ottimo esempio della sua produzione è rappresentato da Clairières dans le Ciel (1913-14), che copre più della metà del cd, ciclo formato da tredici pezzi tratti dall omonima raccolta del poeta simbolista francese Francis Jammes.. Alle origini della raccolta vi sarebbe probabilmente una storia d amore fra Lili e David Devriès, tenore che eseguì in prima assoluta la composizione nel 1918, giusto una settimana prima della morte della Boulanger.. Uno sguardo, ora, ai due interpreti, il tenore Daniel Weeks e la pianista Naomi Oliphant.. Il primo evidenzia una voce molto bella ed espressiva, mentre la seconda risulta dotata di un tocco raffinato ed elegante.. Insieme, grazie ad un perfetto affiatamento e ad una innata sensibilità, riescono a creare un atmosfera che restituisce integralmente la forte intensità legata a testi sovente nostalgici e struggenti.. In conclusione un cd di grande interesse, prodotto grazie agli sforzi dei due esecutori, ed al contributo finanziario congiunto dell Università di Louisville e della Kapralova Society, che aggiunge un altro tassello alla conoscenza della musica al femminile..

Úvod vecera patril výberu z písní výjimecné skladatelky první poloviny dvacátého století Vítezslavy Kaprálové.. Celkem pet písní, v nich skladatelka dokázala na velmi malém prostoru vystihnout vnitrní atmosféru textu, vyjádrila Polá ková nadmíru expresivne, av ak zároven nesmírne citlive.. From a review by David Kanovsky for Olomoucky denik, 5.. Women of Firsts: Art songs by the first important Twentieth Century women composers from the Czech Republic, Poland, United States, and France.. Composers: Vítezslava Kaprálová, Grazyna Bacewicz, Amy Beach, Lili Boulanger.. Performers: Daniel Weeks, tenor; Naomi Oliphant, piano.. Centaur Recordings, CRC 2966 (2008).. Upon first glance, one would assume that a CD entitled Women of Firsts would feature a female voice and piano duo.. However, this CD features tenor Daniel Weeks and pianist Naomi Oliphant in a wonderful recording of familiar and unfamiliar vocal compositions from four female composers who were true pioneers in their field.. Kaprálová was the first woman to conduct the Czech Philharmonic; Bacewicz was the first female composer in Poland to receive national and international attention; Beach was one of the first American women composers to successfully compose in large compositional forms in addition to garnering critical acclaim in Europe; Boulanger was the first female composer to win the famed Prix de Rome at only 19 years old.. The first three tracks on this recording feature the cycle.. Nav dy.. (Forever) by Vítezslava Kaprálová.. These evocative songs are typical of Kaprálová s compositional style, displaying an ethereal and otherworldly quality through the use of interesting harmonies and unexpected modulations coupled with expansive vocal lines and frequent wide intervallic leaps in the melody.. This set is beautifully performed by Weeks and Oliphant, with Weeks demonstrating exquisite phrasing and musicality, in addition to expertly negotiating the contrasting demands of parlando and bel canto singing.. This is followed with Grazyna Bacewicz s song cycle,.. Trzy piesni do slów arabskich z X wieku.. (Three songs to words from the tenth century Arab poetry), originally scored for tenor and orchestra in 1938, and later arranged for tenor and piano.. This brief yet highly varied set certainly deserves its place in art song repertoire.. "Mamidlo" (Mirage) was a lovely surprise for me, as it is accessible and tonal, yet with brief flashes of chromaticism and a melancholy sensation all at once.. However, the highlight of this cycle is the second song, "Inna" (Other Woman).. A mere 43 seconds in length, the song features the piano as the more prominent character, employing a polytonal, ostinato pattern to invoke the nearby lover, while more lyrical and flowing material is used with expressive and tonal harmonies to illustrate the other woman.. Although Amy Beach s cycle, Three Browning Songs, have been recorded by numerous artists, Weeks' and Oliphant s version is to be commended.. The best part of this set is Weeks high notes they are glorious and plentiful.. Although the tempo in the first song, The Year s at the Spring, is a bit slow, Weeks and Oliphant make up for this in the second song, Ah, Love, but a day! This is their best performance of the entire CD.. Oliphant plays the poignant piano part with utmost clarity, and Weeks facility with his upper register is quite remarkable.. His high notes are loud, resonant, and beautiful.. The final cycle on the recording is Clairières dans le Ciel, by Lili Boulanger.. This cycle is also well-represented in numerous recordings, although it is performed by more sopranos despite the fact that it was composed for tenor, David Devriès.. Although many of the tempi are too fast in this recording, mention must be made of Par ce que j ai souffert.. The dramatic and intense suffering in this piece is expertly performed, and the duo makes this extremely difficult song sound incredibly easy, with seamless transitions between tempi, dynamic, expressive, and harmonic changes.. The CD liner notes are thorough, well-written and insightful, offering information on each composer, describing compositional techniques, discussing historical context, and providing translations.. is a thoughtful and musical presentation of important female composers whose music deserves to be heard more often..
