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 252 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."--Jacket

Charles Mackerras by Nigel Simeone( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the time of his death in 2010 at the age of 84, Sir Charles Mackerras had achieved widespread recognition, recorded extensively and developed into a conductor of major international significance. In addition to areas in which he already had forged a distinctive and definitive profile (Janáček, Mozart, Handel, Sullivan) he revisited - and rethought - much of the standard repertoire. The last thirty years were particularly momentous in the coming to fruition of so many cherished projects: not only the Janáček operas but the Gilbert and Sullivan series, the Mozart operas, the two Beethoven cycles, other projects with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (Schumann and Brahms at Edinburgh; the outstanding late Mozart) and at the Royal Opera House and the Met. Unspoilt by fame, and undeterred by personal tragedies and increasing physical frailty, he remained productive and inventive: for him music-making, whether with world-class professionals or with students, was a kind of joyous oxygen that kept him going right to the end. A detailed narrative account of his life is complemented by chapters written by performers and scholars who worked closely with Mackerras: as well as interviews with his family. The book is richly illustrated with photographs and documents, and it includes a comprehensive discography along with listings of many of his concert and opera performances. While Sir Charles' whole life is considered, emphasis is given to his final quarter century, a period in which so many important projects were realized. This book celebrates and epitomizes an exceptional life."--Jacket

Volume 2 opens at the outbreak of the First World War and at the time of Janáček's lowest ebb. Within two years, however, his fortunes were transformed by the Prague production of Jenufa. This led to international fame and fortune and to the magnificent creative flowering in which the elderly composer wrote most of his best-known works. His personal life was affected by his public affair with Gabriela Horvatova and his friendship with Kamila Stosslova, whom he saw as the inspiration for many of his late works
