Vítězslava Kaprálová – Dubnová Preludia “April Prelude” No. 1 (Sarah Cahill, piano)

Vítězslava Kaprálová was a Czech composer and conductor, and wrote her April Prelude No. 1 in 1937 for the pianist Rudolf Firkusny. Kaprálová died at just 25 years old, but left an impressive body of work.

Here is Sarah’s performance, recorded on her mother’s 1893 Steinway as part of The Future is Female project.
