Product description


“Hartl and Entwistle’s Kaprálová Companion is a superb, long overdue contribution to the studies of women in music in general, and specifically, to the analysis of the remarkable composer Vítezslava Kaprálová. A thorough, well-written, and insightful guide.”―Michelle Latour, UNLV

“A remarkable book! Since her death at age 25 in the midst of WWII, Kaprálová’s brilliant musical legacy and story have fallen through the cracks. But now this book brings her music, in all its variety and power, to the fore. This collection, by a range of distinguished scholars, offers insights and investigation into Kaprávlová’s creative work and life. Nothing short of a revelation!”―Liane Curtis, Brandeis University

From the Foreword:
“This volume is the first scholarly effort in English attempting to put the puzzle of Kaprálová together in a coherent form. It represents the collective thought of the most serious scholars who have devoted themselves to studying Kaprálová and her work, and sets a high standard for those to follow.”―Michael Beckerman, New York University
