MetadataShow full item record
Vítězslava Kaprálová might have been forgotten due to her untimely death during the World War II, however her music has resurfaced in the past decades and her name is well known in the Czech Republic. With no published edition of Kaprálová’s String Quartet, currently available instrumental parts and recordings vary from the original autograph. This study focuses on historical and theoretical analysis of the work, editorial suggestions, and performance issues. The original autograph is compared to two copyist manuscripts of individual parts as well as two available sound recordings.
