Vítězslava Kaprálová (1915 – 1940)
Sad Evening
(ed. Timothy Cheek)

Cover of AM 0067

In 2006, while browsing through Kaprálová Papers deposited in the Music History Department of the Moravian Museum in Brno, Karla Hartl came across an autograph of a previously unknown Kaprálová song, entitled Smutný večer (Sad evening). It is not only the music but also the text of the song, likely written by the composer herself, which makes this find so interesting. We have no doubt that this edition of Sad Evening, prepared for publication by Kaprálová scholar Timothy Cheek, Associate Professor of Voice at the University of Michigan, will make a valuable contribution to the body of knowledge about Kaprálová’s oeuvre, in which art song holds such a prominent place. The project was initiated and financially assisted by the Kapralova Society.
