Clark. Anthony Philip Heinrich, The Sylviad: or, Minstrelsy of Nature

with introduction by J. Bunker Clark, 1996. Conners Publications, 503 Tahoe Street,

The Sylviad was originally published
to impress the Royal Academy of Music, to which it was
dedicated, before Heinrich traveled to London to advance his career. The 34 works (for piano,
solo voice, or vocal ensemble) are sometimes amusing, sometimes simple, sometimes f iendishly
difficult, especially the two toccatas for piano. Not only is this Bohemian-born composer
America's first genius of art music, in the pages of The Sylviad are found many avant-garde
elements of the Romantic century: virtuosity, extreme chromaticism, complex experimental
harmonies, unconvential formal structures, expression of personal feelings and experiences,
and intense nationalism.
Not only was Heinrich (1781-1861) an ardent musical Americanist, but has also
reflecting his Bohemian heritage. This is the most extraordinary Opus 3 in the history of music,
as was his Dawning of Music in Kentucky (Philadelphia, 1920) the most extraordinary Opus 1.

Jan. Australian reception of Dvořák as well
as latter part of the life of
singer Gabriela Roubalová (Madame Boema), an Italian-trained Prague-born
soprano, who arrived in Australia in 1879. She was featured in the premiere of
Dvořák's The Spectre's Bride, performed in Melbourne in 1886. Ms. Roubalová
knew both Dvořák and Smetana, as she had previously sung with the Czech
National Opera. (In Prague, she had been a student of Pivoda, whose songs she
included in recitals.) Her colorful, independent personal life led her to Melbourne
where she enjoyed a successful career. Ms. Roubalová died in 1922.
