This bachelor thesis focuses on the work of Greek composer Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou, professionally known as Vangelis, and the possible use of his work in teaching music. What follows is a brief presentation of the composer's life and career, a narrative analysis of pieces from the composer's popular albums (in consecutive order - 1492 - Conquest of Paradise, Mythodea and Rosetta) and, at last, the estimation of the use of these pieces in music education. Subsequently, individual teachers' implementation of these pieces in their lessons is evalued via the aid of filled-in questionnaires. The aim of this thesis is to elaborate on the creative work of the composer, analyse a specific part of his music and explore the possibilities of practical educational utilisation of it. All three aims were fulfilled.

Náměstek, Vít ; Pecháček, Stanislav (advisor) ; Nedělka, Michal (referee) ; Brož, Jaroslav (referee)
This dissertation presents a complex look at the life and creative legacy of an eminent personality of sacred and liturgical music living in the second half of the 20th century, Rev. Father Karel Bříza (1926 - 2001). His name has become known especially in the field of post- conciliar liturgical music thanks to his composition of the nationally widespread and timeless Czech Mass Ordinary - a piece that is imprinted on the minds of believers as an inseparable part of the Catholic liturgy throughout the Czech lands. Apart from this Ordinary, however, Karel Bříza authored many other musical works, ranging from shorter hymns to extensive collections of the so-called Czech Masses. Each of the more than seventy pieces is analyzed in this dissertation, with a brief discussion of the main musical characteristics and distinctive elements of the particular piece. A catalogue of Bříza's musical works is included as an appendix. The present work also provides a complete and systematic overview of organ-type instruments single-handedly built by Bříza, including images and descriptions of the current state of each individual organ masterpiece still in existence. As part of the portrait of Bříza's life, obtained largely from authentic accounts of living relatives and associates, as well as from personal...
Analysis of consumers' preferences for cars on Slovak market.
Nedeľka, Michal ; Ščasný, Milan (advisor) ; Sargsyan, Yermone (referee)
This thesis investigates the effect of registration tax and fuel prices on the car market in Slovakia. Using the dataset provided by the Department of Evidence and Papers of Slovak Police Force with information about vehicles that entered the national car evidence, we compute monthly registrations of passenger vehicles. Given the nature of our data, we estimate pooled OLS model with fixed effects, focusing on different vehicle segments. We also analyse fuel price elasticity when prices were mostly decreasing or increasing to examine asymmetric response of car buyers. Results suggest a negative impact of the registration tax on the number of registrations of petrol vehicles with a stronger response of fuel efficient cars compared to less efficient. In the segment of diesel vehicles, only registrations of used and less efficient cars are affected by the tax. The elasticity of registrations with respect to fuel costs is negative for all car segments except for the new efficient petrol-fueled vehicles. Registrations of diesel vehicles are more sensitive with respect to fuel price changes than petrol cars in most segments. We also find an asymmetric response to fuel prices during the periods of price increases and decreases and declining responsiveness over time. JEL Classification C23, O18, Q31, R41,...
