Vitezslava Kapralova, Czech composer and conductor, wrote this piece around 1935, at the age of 20, while studying at the Brno Conservatory of Music. The music is written for piano and violin. Using the Garritan Personal Orchestra v4 library of virtual orchestral instruments, I have created an arrangement of the music for string orchestra with English Horn and Cello. The line originally taken by the violin, is here transposed down and given to the cello and the piano accompaniment has been given to the string orchestra and the English Horn.
Kapralova had considerable fame and recognition during her lifetime. Most of her 50+ works were published before her tragic death from tuberculosis in France, in June of 1940, 2 months after getting married and 2 days after the Germans entered Paris.
