Title: K problematike stavu výskumu klavírneho diela Alexandra Moyzesa
Author: Zuzana Dřízalová Čerbová

Abstract: The goal of the presented study is to introduce the hitherto little researched piano work of the Slovak composer Alexander Moyzes (1906–1984). In the work of this composer, teacher and publicist, we can find smaller piano pieces as well as sonatas. It is especially the Sonata in E minor, Op. 2 for piano, which forms an important milestone in Moyzes’ piano work, as from the compositional point of view it is a mature opus of the composer, while at the same time it reflects the inventiveness of his study beginnings at the Prague Conservatory (the piece resulted from the elaboration of several cyclical works during the years 1926–1942). Its rich source background deposited mostly in the Music Department of the Slovak National Museum enables us to present the piano work in detail, which we accomplished in this study: we presented the condition of the research of sources and music literature of the whole piano work of Alexander Moyzes, while we learned that it is necessary to attract the attention of musicologists to the study of some questionable aspects of Moyzes’ piano work (terminology, dates of the origination of pieces, unsatisfactory description of the piano work, absence of a relevant register of the same). Due to the resctricted scope of the study we focused more profoundly on one of the aspects: the register of the complete piano work of Alexander Moyzes. It was compiled on the basis of a thorough critical elaboration of music literature and sources, which is illustrated also in a table. We hope we have specified several questionable claims and pointed to further unexplored aspects of Alexander Moyzes’ piano work.
