"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 (from the foreword) "A remarkable book! Since her death at age twenty-five 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 Kaprálová's creative work and life. Nothing short of a revelation!"-Liane Curtis, Brandeis University "Karla Hartl and Erik Entwistle's The 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 Vitezslava Kaprálová. A thorough, well-written, and insightful guide."-Michelle Latour, UNLV
