Zdeněk Fibich: Moods, Impressions, and Souvenirs
Špilauer, Jiří ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (advisor) ; Kopecký, Jiří (referee) ; Ottlová, Marta (referee)
The dissertation deals with a complete cycle of piano pieces by Zdeněk Fibich called The Moods, Impressions and Reminiscences. The cycle has been largely presented in the literature as a `composer's love diary`, used to search for identical motifs across the composer's late work and understood in the context of programme music. The aim of the dissertation is to evaluate objectively this present majority view and to put a new view on it, to inform about the circumstances of the comprehensive complete edition of The Moods, Impressions and Reminiscences, to analyse the ensemble as a set of lyrical piano pieces with their specific purely musical features and to place the Fibich cycle into the context of the lyrical piano piece of the late 19th century. The work focuses mainly on musical- structural analysis based on grasping the form of compositions with the predominant way of thematic-motivational construction, observation and comparison of tonal fitting, dimension, prescribed times and searching for motivational, cyclic and other possible links. The results of the work enable us to view The Moods, Impressions and Reminiscences as a unique cycle of lyrical piano pieces from the end of the 19th century with their typical characteristics and key features of the musical kind and also show the unique...
Vinzenz Maschek (1755 - 1831) - Life and Work
Mikuláš, Jiří ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (advisor) ; Kapsa, Václav (referee) ; Jakubcová, Alena (referee)
Vinzenz Maschek (1755-1831) - Life and Work Abstract The goal of this two-volume thesis was to write a monograph about the life and work of the Czech composer Vinzenz Maschek. The first volume of the thesis presents Maschek as a virtuoso, composer, choir master as well as a man of his era - a husband and a father of 17 children. The second volume provides a thematic catalog of Maschek's works. This project follows up on research that started in 1987. The chapters of the thesis were written in different stages of more than twenty-year research of this topic and thus reflect this fact. Current research shows that Vinzenz Maschek is one of the most prominent composers of the turn of the 19th century both in Prague and in Central Europe. His works, in particular his piano concertos and large masses of extraordinary artistic value, should be published as a critical edition and performed by foremost interpreters. The thesis will surely help to expand our knowledge about the music and music life in Prague and entire Central Europe at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century.
Semiramide riconosciuta by G. M. Rutini (Prague 1752)
Pincová, Kateřina ; Niubo, Marc (advisor) ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (referee)
Setting a very famous Metastasio's libreto Semiramide riconosciuta to music in Prague in 1752, Giovanni Marco Rutini has ranked among the best composers of his time. The aim of this thesis is to explore the process of this production coming to light: the influence of changes in the original libretto in the beginning to the impact of music later. Researching the context of the Prague theatre productions in the 1750s, we were further able to make some suggestions about the reasons of these changes/interpretations. Studying the dramaturgical level of this composition in the first place, we were using comparison and stylistic analytical methods which showed Rutini as a very creative composer with a sense of dramatical situations and a characterization skills. Key words: Giovanni Marco Rutini, Semiramide riconosciuta, Pietro Metastasio, Giovanni Battista Locatelli, Christoph Willibald Gluck, dramaturgy of opera, musical analysis
The Phenomenon of "Song Symphony" in Nikolai Myaskovsky's Work
Frank, Vojtěch ; Pudlák, Miroslav (advisor) ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (referee)
This bachelor thesis defines and explains the terms such as "songness" and song symphony, clarifies their role in the cultural politics of the Soviet Union, and illustrates their realisation in the symphonic music on the example of three symphonies by Nikolai Myaskovsky. The works under discussion are Symphony no. 8 op. 26, no. 16 op. 39, and no. 26 op. 79 which all, in their form structures, contain parts that bear characteristic features of "songness". The analysis here focuses on the role of these song themes in the given symphonies. In relation to Socialist Realism, there is the term "song symphony" present in the contemporaneous musicological literature, with its sources of inspiration being searched for and its ideological function being promoted. This thesis aims to designate the impact of this dogma on Myaskovsky's work, him having born the label of an "intellectual" or "subjectivist" artist despite the fact that up to a certain point he tried to meet the historical norm and incorporate it into his work. Keywords: song symphony, songness, Nikolai Myaskovsky, analysis, thematic work, Socialist Realism, USSR, cultural politics, artist and totalitarianism
Piano Works by Alexander Moyzes (1906-1984) in their Historical Context
Čerbová, Zuzana ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (advisor) ; Pudlák, Miroslav (referee)
The magister thesis is connected with bachelor's thesis, which was concentrated on Piano Sonata in E minor, op. 2 by Slovak composer Alexander Moyzes (1906-1984) and was concerned on it mainly with collected sources. In this thesis we decided to point out its composing work and possible inspiring sources and therefore the focus of this diploma thesis is its introduction into historical context of piano music of the 19th and 20th centuries. Through composite-technical and stylistic analyses of selected piano sonatas and other works, we want to contribute to the closer characterization of Moyzes composer's personality and to complement the literature that Moyzes Sonate has devoted to in minimal terms from composing work and inspiring sources. Selected pieces include: Brahms Sonata f mol, Op. 5 and Variation and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, op. 24 from the point of view of means of piano stylization, Sonata Eroica, op. 24 for piano by Vít zslav Novák because of their mutual interest in working with modality and mutual close relationships (Moyzes's teacher). In addition to these goals, we will also focus on the other piano works of Moyzes by creating a new chronological inventory based on preserved sources. Key words: Alexander Moyzes, Piano Sonata in E minor op. 2, Johannes Brahms, Vít zslav Novák,...
Josef Proksch and his methodology of teaching piano (in the light of his six books of Practical School of Piano Playing)
Šimsová, Martina ; Ottlová, Marta (advisor) ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (referee)
This thesis discovers and analyzes the Josef Proksch's approach to piano teaching based on his six books of Practical School of Piano Playing. In each book we study the increasing technical difficulty, the selection of the particular exercises, études and compositions. The whole set of the course books is also described in terms of its structure, language variants and editions issued by various publishers. The storage location of all the examined exemplars in the main Prague libraries is summarized in a clear table. Furthermore we go thru the programs of Proksch Music Institute public exams. This helps us to reveal the then preferences of both the lay and the professional public. This work also tries to track the Proksch's influence on his most popular student Bedřich Smetana. The analyzed course books are compared with Smetana's institute teaching materials. There we have found that Smetana continues and develops Proksch's ideas. Keywords Josef Proksch, Practical School of Piano Playing, Versuch einer Rationellen Lehrmethode, Josef Proksch Music Institute, School of Piano Playing, Piano Teaching, Piano Methodology, Analysis, Bedřich Smetana

The analysis of sepolcri by Jiří Ignác Linek
Tříletý, Petr ; Niubo, Marc (advisor) ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (referee)
The author of the thesis wants to examine the applicability of the concept of galant style as presented by Robert Gjerdingen in his treatise Music in the Galant Style (2007). As a musical material which he wants to analyze by using the mentioned concept he chooses three extant sepolcros by a schoolmaster from Bakov nad Jizerou Jiří Ignác Linek (1725-1791). Further, he deals with a thesis by Eva Tomandlová (1934- 2010) written in the late 1950's that had these sepolcros as its subject. Thus, at presenting Gjerdingen's approach and its specific possibilities, the author can make use of comparison with a method which can be considered an exemplar of the prevailing analytical tradition.

Mlejnek, Roman ; Franěk, Marek (advisor) ; Gabrielová, Jarmila (referee) ; Luska, Jiří (referee)
Roman Mlejnek Music and Emotions: Psychological Aspects with Regard to the Origin and Evolution of Music Dissertation thesis Abstract Music and emotion is of deep interest in today's research in many different disciplines. This thesis summarizes contemporary knowledge of emotion and analyses music's related phenomena which could enlighten the importance of emotionality (sound, speech, play, movement). Interindividual differences are discussed mainly with regard to musicality. Selected problems (especially from music aesthetics and music theory) are commented from the point of view of contemporary psychology. In the first place, this thesis notices common psychological mechanisms working in music of different types, times and cultures. Special consideration is devoted to the question of the origins of music and it's evolutionary basis. The thesis includes two empirical studies based on questionnaire surveys. The first one explores Janáček's collection of speech melodies with regard to it's potential as research stimuli for research in music and speech. The second one deals with physically experienced reactions and is focussed on musicians and their differences to non- musicians. Key words: music, emotion, origins of music
