Title: Korešpondencia Jána Levoslava Bellu a Richarda Straussa
Author: Zuzana Godárová, Vladimír Godár

Abstract: The Correspondence of Ján Levoslav Bella and Richard Strauss
In the course of several decades of the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century both Ján Levoslav Bella and Richard Strauss worked as musicians – composers and conductors – for German communities. Fourteen letters exchanged between them in the period of August 27, 1888 and January 29, 1912 have been preserved to this day, dealing mostly with practical problems arising in their work. The letters accompany the presentation of Richard Strauss’ cantata Wandrers Sturmlied, Op. 14 in Sibiu, Transylvania, under the baton of Ján Levoslav Bella, and the Eisenach (Germany) performance of Bella’s symphonic poem The Destiny and Ideal on April 25, 1890 conducted by Richard Strauss, and they shed light on both events. They represent in themselves a weighty evidence of the transformation of opinions on composer’s art and establish the ideal of programme music, which for both composers-Kapellmeisters stood for a revolutionary artistic concept. The preserved letters are published for the first time in their entirety and paralelly in both languages – original German and translated Slovak version.
