Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hartl and Entwistle’s Kaprálová Companion is a superb, long overdue contribution to the studies of women in music in general, and specifically, to the analysis of the remarkable composer Vítezslava Kaprálová. A thorough, well-written, and insightful guide.”—Michelle Latour, UNLV

|

“A remarkable book! Since her death at age 25 in the midst of WWII, Kaprálová’s brilliant musical legacy and story have fallen through the cracks. But now this book brings her music, in all its variety and power, to the fore. This collection, by a range of distinguished scholars, offers insights and investigation into Kaprávlová’s creative work and life. Nothing short of a revelation!”—Liane Curtis, Brandeis University

|

From the Foreword:

“This volume is the first scholarly effort in English attempting to put the puzzle of Kaprálová together in a coherent form. It represents the collective thought of the most serious scholars who have devoted themselves to studying Kaprálová and her work, and sets a high standard for those to follow.”—Michael Beckerman, New York University

About the Author

Karla Hartl is chair of The Kapralova Society and chief editor, The Kapralova Society Journal.

By Michael Beckerman on January 21, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Vitezslava Kapralova was a remarkable personality, a gifted composer-conductor who died much too young. But so did Keats, Schubert, and even Otis Redding. Once we get over how young she was, there is her music and artistic activity to consider. This volume is a splendid introduction to her life and work, by the leading specialists in the field. Hopefully it will be the first of many volumes dealing with her life and music.
