about

The Kaprálová Companion, edited by Karla Hartl and Erik Entwistle, is a collection of biographical and analytical essays on Czech composer Vítezslava Kaprálová [1915-1940]. Accompanied by an annotated catalog of works, annotated chronology of life events, bibliography, discography, and a list of published works, The Kaprálová Companion is an essential, comprehensive guide to the composer's life and music. It is also the first book published on Kaprálová in English. As readers will discover, the work of Vítezslava Kaprálová represents a progressive and distinctive voice in inter-war Czech musical culture. Despite her untimely death at the age of twenty-five, Kaprálová created an impressive body of work that has earned her the distinction of being considered the most important woman composer in the history of Czech music. Editors Hartl and Entwistle have gathered a roster of scholars from the United States, Canada, and the Czech Republic, whose contributions to The Kaprálová Companion cover a variety of topics relevant to Kaprálová and her times. It is not only be a welcome starting point for scholars and music lovers, but its critical essays also advance thought-provoking assessments of her music, engender further inquiries into aspects of her life and work, and inspire a new generation of performers.
Karla Hartl is chair of The Kapralova Society and chief editor, The Kapralova Society Journal. Erik Entwistle received his PhD in musicology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and teaches music history at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
