Andrea and I are hard at work on Kaprálová and Martinů´s songs and the rehearsals are ever more interesting.

I´m happy to say that Andrea and I will be the first Czech musicians to record Kaprálová´s recently discovered song "Smutný večer" to a text likely written by the composer herself. It´s a difficult, atmospheric, at times polytonal piece, which shows the influence of French impressionism, though it was written before Kaprálová studied in Paris, probably when she still lived in her hometown of Brno.

Andrea and I will present an excerpt of the Kaprálová and Martinů recital this coming Wednesday in Prague for the Friends of Prague Spring, a club centered around the Prague Spring music festival. We hope that this small recital will be a stepping stone for us. Promoting Kaprálová in her homeland has become and increasingly important goal for this project.

Please do stay tuned for concrete dates in the US this Fall. We almost have them!

I´m thrilled to announce that we will be recording Kaprálová´s and Martinů´s songs on the 28th and 29th of September at the Ostrava radio! I´m very excited to work with the talented Andrea Vavrušová-Mottlová, who will accompany me on the recording and who will play Kaprálová´s Five piano pieces, among other solo works, on the Czech version of the recital. You may check out Andrea´s impressive resume and recordings here.

Ema Katrovas is a remarkable singer, a new and beautiful lyric voice on the operatic stage. With this project she brings to the world a story--and music--too little known by another great young artist of the past--Vitezslava Kapralova, Czech composer of the 1930s. This is musically valuable and historically important! So glad to support this project....
