Opera is the grandest and most potent cultural expression of the nationalist movement which led to the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic in 1918. During this period Czech opera developed into a genre of major artistic importance cultivated by composers of the stature of Smetana, Dvorak and Janacek. Czech Opera examines opera in its national contexts, and is a study not only of operas written in Czech, but also of the specific circumstances which shaped them

My life with Janáček : the memoirs of Zdenka Janáčková by Zdenka Janáčková( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zdenka Janackova's intimate and revealing memoir of her husband, the great Czech composer Leos Janacek, was dictated to a secretary in 1933-5, a few years before her death. In it she tells the tale of her extraordinary life with Janacek, from her years as his young piano pupil (when the composer was 23) to his sudden death at the age of 74. Her Story provides a first-hand - and not always flattering - account of Janacek's day-to-day life. Its many dramatic revelations include an account of his tempestuous affair with the singer Gabriela Horvatova, Zdenka's subsequent suicide attempt and her strange 'divorce' from her husband (they continued to live together until his death). Among other striking passages are her harrowing description of the long illness and painful death of their daughter Olga and a forthright account of Janacek's increasing infatuation during his late years with his 'muse' Kamila Stosslova and of the events surrounding his death."--BOOK JACKET
