Leos Janacek (1854-1928) composed the cantata Elegy on the Death of My Daughter Olga (1903) a mere two months after the loss of his beloved child. The title page bears his dedication"In memory of my Olga". The piece is composed to the Czech translation of the original Russian verses of his daughter's friend M. N. Veveritsa. The composer's intimate and sorrowful memory resounds in tenor solo, mixed choir and piano. The Elegy was not premiered until 27 years after its completion, and it is still unjustly considered a piece of marginal importance. The publication is introduced by a detailed Preface by Vladimir Helfert (Cz., Eng., Ger., Fr.). The lyrics are set in Czech, German and English.
