The String Quartet in C minor, of 1925, is in two movements. The opening one, in sonata form, ushers in a meditative mood which gradually evolves to passages of violent agitation; and in the second, moments of gentle reflection alternate with outbursts of merriment. The quartet's motivic material draws inspiration from folk music. The composer dedicated it to the Moravian Quartet.
The piano ranked among the domains of Kapral's creative endeavour. A top-class pianist, he was not just a student the renowned Adolf Miks in Prague, whose piano method he himself applied, but in 1924 he also attended interpretation courses conducted by Alfred Cortot in Paris. Kapral's masterpieces include four piano sonatas. Of those, the one-movement Sonata No. 3 was written after his visit of Paris, and by the sheer drama of its expression comes close to the vigour of Janacek's idiom. It was premiered shortly after its completion, in France, by Erwin Schulhoff to whom it is dedicated.
A virtually descriptive character is embedded in the Sonata No. 4, of 1939. It sprang up in spontaneous response to the Nazi invasion of this country, and was originally named 15th March, 1939. Its first movement mirrors eloquently the atmosphere of despair and loss which shrouded those days. The second part is already calmer, even sunnier, notwithstanding its elegiac undertones. The sonata reaches its climax in the third movement, bringing in tones of defiance attesting to the composers faith in the eventual victory.
Premonition for piano is Vaclav Kapral's most extraordinary composition. Sometime in mid-July 1940, he suddenly found himself in the throngs of unspeakable melancholy, entailing an ominous premonition. He felt a compulsive urge to sit down at the piano and write a piece of music auguring a catastrophic event. One month later, listening to a BBC wartime radio broadcast, he learned about the death, around the time of his writing this miniature, of his only child, Vitezslava Kapralova, on her way from the war zone, in a hospital in Montpellier.
Mementos of the brevity of human life are likewise very much present in Lullabies (1932), setting Slovak folk poetry, with characteristic minor-key harmonies inspired by folklore music. The work, Kapral's most notable song cycle, reached the international platform in Barcelona, where it was performed during the festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music, on April 20, 1936. In the previous year, it won the Czech Academy of Sciences and Arts Award.
The Funeral March, of 1932, is the work of Vaclav Kapral's daughter, Vitezslava Kapralova (1915-1940), then seventeen-years-old. A composer and conductor, she produced during her short but eventful life an output of around fifty works. The Funeral March was first performed by conservatory student Milada Blahova, at a soiree given by the Brno Conservatory on April 18, 1932. Set in the context of Vaclav Kapral's legacy, its music bears clear signs of intrinsic conceptual affinity between the two composers.
