Abstract:
This paper presents an examination of the art songs of Czech composer Vítězslava Kaprálová (January 24, 1915 - June 16, 1940) through detailed analysis of selected works. Kaprálová created a unique character for each of her art songs, with careful attention to idiomatic declamation and syllable stress, tone-painting in the accompaniments, and the use of primarily "post-impressionistic" stylistic techniques. Most importantly, this study focuses on the fact that her composition was firmly rooted in the text, and that her choice and adaptation of text convey important autobiographical motivation as well as insight into her character and personality.
