Josef Suk was a key figure in modern Czech music. This thematic catalogue, published to mark the seventieth anniversary of his death, is the most comprehensive to date. For the first time it makes it possible to follow the genesis of his works, thanks to a precise description of all available sources, from sketches and autographs to copyist's manuscripts and published editions of the definitive versions. Each entry is accompanied by a detailed commentary describing the circumstances surrounding the piece concerned (including biographical information) and often correcting mistakes handed down in the previous literature on Suk. This Czech-English publication covers not only the finished works but also minor juvenilia, projected compositions, works of doubtful authenticity, arrangements of works by other composers, and revisions of music by Dvorak.
