The reputation of the Bohemian composer Zdenek Fibich (1850-1900) has always been somewhat overshadowed by that of Smetana and Dvorak. This is a pity, for Fibich, though he died young, made an equally important contribution to the emerging Czech national style with his wide range of compositions.
After starting piano lessons with his mother as his first teacher, the boy went on to music school in Prague and then to the Leipzig Conservatoire, where he learned his craft as a composer. He spent a few months teaching piano in Paris and then continued his studies with Lachner in Mannheim.
Prague was eventually to become the centre for Fibich's musical activities: as his dream of a post at the Conservatoire remained unfulfilled, his main employment was giving private music lessons and as a composer Fibich wrote works for many musical genres: vocal and chamber music, piano pieces and orchestral works, operas, stage music and melodramas, literary recitals with orchestral accompaniment to which he gave a new lease of life.
There are biographical traces to be found in the 376 piano pieces of the collection 'Moods, Impressions and Reminiscences' Op. 41, written in 1892-98: this tells of his love for his pupil Anezka Schulzova in the form of a 'piano diary'. Its four volumes were frequently a source of material for other works, such as the symphonic poem 'In the Evening' Op.39 (also known as 'A Summer's Evening' and 'At Twilight'), written in 1893. For his second subject in this 'Idyll' Fibich used the miniature no.139, entitled 'Lento', from his collection of piano pieces. The violinist Jan Kubelik played the melody from 1908 onwards with the title 'Poeme', and the work is still known today under this title: its easy charm has made it a favourite in the classical repertoire. This arrangement is based on the orchestral version from which other material was adapted for the Prelude.
