Title: Klavírna hudba v prvej polovici 19. storočia na Slovensku
Author: Andrej Čepec

Abstract: Piano Music in the First Half of the 19th Century in Slovakia
The contribution offers the survey of the piano music development in the first half of the 19th century in the territory of the present Slovakia. The piano music is scrutinised from the aspects of development of the European history of music, namely in the Central-European region. We briefly outline the period music trends and components influencing the piano music creation in Slovakia. The development of musical instruments is considered in the context of the expansion of instrument builders’ production and boom of piano composition. We demonstrate the interest in piano playing through the presentation of the educational system and usage of piano playing instruction books. The period repertory is presented from the point of view of development tendencies, as well as of composers’, performers’ and teachers’ activities. We survey the piano work of the time with regard to the compositions’ functions and intentions, musical styles, genres and forms of art music. The subject is interpreted in accordance with the formation of piano music and musical thinking in the context of cultural and social events in the multinational state of the Habsburg monarchy (Austrian Empire after 1804) and Kingdom of Hungary.
