Operetta "Polská krev" by Oskar Nedbal in Historical Context
Petrdlík, Jiří ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (advisor) ; Douša, Eduard (referee) ; Kopecký, Jiří (referee)
Oskar Nedbal patří mezi nejvýznamnější české hudební osobnosti konce 19. a počátku 20. století. Jeho přínos lze spatřovat nejen v oblasti interpretačního umění a hudebně organizačního úsilí, ale rovněž na poli skladatelském, především díky operetě Polská krev (Polenblut). Disertační práce se kromě nezbytného přehledu pramenů a literatury a nástinu života a díla Oskara Nedbala soustředí na otázku postavení operety Polská krev jak v rámci skladatelovy ostatní tvorby, tak i v širším kontextu vídeňské operety. Zároveň přináší doposud nepublikované informace o nedbalianech z depozitáře divadelního oddělení Národního muzea v Terezíně a ve světle průzkumu těchto pramenů se pokouší definovat základní atributy Nedbalova způsobu práce při kompozici operety Polská krev i dalších významných děl. Nedbalova vrcholná operetní tvorba je ukázkovým příkladem populární hudby vysoké umělecké úrovně, ve které se odráží skladatelův vysoce seriózní kompoziční přístup. Zejména opereta Polská krev dokumentuje Nedbalův záměr klást na tento žánr vyšší umělecký nárok, než jaký byl běžný zejména ve Vídni počátkem 20. století. Abstract: Oskar Nedbal is one of the most important Czech music personalities of the end of 19th and the beginning of 20th century. His contribution can be seen not only in the fields of interpretive art...
Alexander Moyzes: Piano Sonata in E minor, op. 2
Čerbová, Zuzana ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (advisor) ; Douša, Eduard (referee)
The focus of the bachelor thesis is to examine in closer detail the piano composition Piano Sonata in E minor, op. 2 by the Slovakian composer Alexander Moyzes (1906-1984). This is achieved through the compositional-technical analysis of its printed version that was published during the composer's life, in 1947. The aim is not to place the composition primarily within the historical context as a considerable amount of related sources has been collected; a large space of the work is therefore occupied by the analysis of these sources. Through the detailed study of these the thesis attempts to outline the genesis of the above mentioned composition and briefly comment on the development of Moyzes's compositional activities. Key words: Alexander Moyzes, Sonata, sources, musical analysis

Havlíček, Zdeněk ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (advisor) ; Douša, Eduard (referee)
Zdeněk Havlíček The Piano Works of Josef Bohuslav Foerster (The Lyrical Piano Pieces of the Turn of the Century) ABSTRACT: The presented thesis deals with the piano works of Josef Bohuslav Foerster - in detail, it is concerned with his lyrical piano pieces from the turn of the century. After mapping out the relevant Foerster-related literature and sources, it approaches the issue of lyrical piano piece as a music genre, and gives a relatively detailed outline of its development in the 19th century. This becomes a background against which, at some points, the nature of the analyzed pieces is to be shown. In the analysis of the piano cycle "Snění" ("Dreamings", 1898), the motivic and thematic processes are the main object, the analysis of the cycle "Růže vzpomínek" ("Roses of Memories", 1902) is dominated by the aspect of harmony and also takes into consideration the context of the various piano genres employed. From the cycle "A jabloně kvetly" ("And the Apple trees blossom", 1905), only the first piece ("Dream") is closely observed. Finally, an attempt is made to discuss the piano works in question in broader musical-historical and musical- historiographical contexts.
