Elegie na smrt dcery Olgy 'Elegy on the death of my daughter Olga'
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Elegy, a setting for mixed voices of a text by Marie N. Vevericová is an introspective response to the death, in 1903, of Janácek’s only surviving child, at twenty-one years of age, an event which further extended the long and troubled gestation of the opera Jenufa.
