Title: Stopa Richarda Wagnera v české hudbě nebo muzikologii?
Author: Marta Ottlová

Abstract: Richard Wagner and his Traces in Czech Music and Musicology
In the second half of the 19th century the influence of Richad Wagner as a music dramatist, as well as a writer and author of theoretical concept of music drama was felt very strongly. To a great extent the search for the ideal of Czech national opera was equal to its demarcation against the foreign influences, hence also against the ‘Wagnerism’, although the ideas about what is ‘Wagnerian’ were mostly only unclearly defined in the period press, and sometimes they did not take reality into account. The turn was made by Otakar Hostinský who considered Wagner the representative of the progress in art, worthy to be followed also in the Czech environment. His Wagnerian interpretation of Smetana had entrenched itself in Czech musicology so firmly, that the arguments of Wagner’s opponents, such as František Pivoda, remained unnoticed until the 1980s. Only when we cease to consider the given issue through the prism of the progress in art, we may free the explication of the development of Czech music and opera of the 19th century of speculativeness and normativeness.
