Čestmír Gregor: The Piano Compositions of the Composer
Veličková, Magda ; Gregor, Vít (advisor) ; Palkovská, Jana (referee)
In my thesis, I introduce a complete list of piano works by Čestmír Gregor, a contemporary Czech composer of modern classical music. 1 have tried to define his compositional techniques and sources of inspiration by analysing the individual pieces of music. I have found that the major features of the author's highly unique style are polyphonic thinking, the development of motives from small nuclei, expressive themes, plastic tunes, inventive work with rhythm, and the absence of a tonal centre which he compensates for by distinctive melodies . The author finds his inspiration in folklore, especially Moravian (Leoš Janáček), the works of Czech interwar avantgardě (Pavel Borkovec) and in jazz (Jaroslav Ježek). His music reflects the emotional states of a man living in the twenty-first century whose life style is predominantly determined by an urban environment. Gregor does not use any of the Musica Nova theories, instead he founded his own music language. The basis for his compositions is communicative music, which follows the patterns of human perceptive psychology. Gregor's concertant compositions are typical for a new instrument stylization and nontraditional attitudes towards instrument virtuosity (playing with a palm, elbow; an unconventional fingering). His piano sonatas and concerts enable the...

Zdichová, Lucie ; Kozánková, Olga (advisor) ; Gregor, Vít (referee)
This dissertation deals with the contribution of contemporary composer educators to the development of childrenʼs musicality. In the first chapter it touches on the theme of important pedagogical representatives in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia in the 17th to 19th centuries, and briefly stops at our nation's teacher, Jan Ámos Komenský. The following chapters contain a questionnaire and the treatise on the life and educational activity of contemporary Czech composers and educators Eduard Douša, Emil Hradecký, Milan Dvořák, Jiří Pazour and Tomáš Sýkora. The main source of my information was a personal interview with each one. The goal of my work was to outline the key influences of music teachers on the child's spiritual and emotional development from the 17th century to the present and to answer the question "What personality features can be a positive influence on music students of any age?". Key words Czech composers, education, childrenʼs musicality, development, influence

Attraction and Problems of the Antonín Dvořáks Piano Works
Víšek, Tomáš ; Palkovská, Jana (advisor) ; Gregor, Vít (referee) ; Havlík, Jaromír (referee)
This thesis endeavours to fill a gap in the specialized literature concerning the interpretation of Dvořák's compositions. His works for piano are often overlooked and marginalized. As this thesis was written at a pedagogical fakulty, it should be suitable as an expert guide for active performers who are interested in Dvořák's piano compositions. However, it will also be useful to those still on their way to discovering these works. There are step by step analyses of all the piano works for two hands. Very detailed musical examples and comparisons aim to bring their compositional beauty closer to the performer and also offer advice on how to overcome or avoid problems that may arise while studying them. (Dvořák was a competent pianist, but he did not have any continuous training nor indeed any desire to be a concert pianist.) This detailed study of the individual pieces is completed by a well-drafted summary of Dvořák's pianistic education and execution and concise information being gained through the previous analyses. Finally there is a passage outlining the suitability and choice amongst Dvořák's piano music for young musicians and a basic list of pianists dedicated to the performance of Dvořák's music in the Czech Republic and abroad. KEYWORDS - Antonín Dvořák - piano playing - piano...
