Overview

The first of four late tone poems inspired by "Bouquet", a collection of ballads by Karel Jaromir Erben based upon Czech folklore, the Water Goblin was composed from January 6 to February 11 of 1896. The folk legend concerns a horrific tale about a water goblin who pulls a girl beneath a lake when she ventures too close, fathers a child with her and ultimately murders the child when the girl attempts to escape his watery lair. The four tone poems, with their connections to Czech folklore, were awarded first prize by the Czech Academy of Sciences and Arts in 1899. This new study score is a digitally enhanced reissue of the full score first published in 1958 by the Czech State Publishers as part of the Dvorak collected works, edited by Antonin Cubr. Unlike so many of the on-demand scores now available, this one comes with all the pages and the images have been thoroughly checked to make sure it is readable. As with all PLP scores a percentage of each sale is donated to the amazing online archive of free music scores and recordings, IMSLP - Petrucci Music Library.
