Lukáš Zdeněk (1928 - 2007)

Skladatel Zdeněk Lukáš

Skladatel Zdeněk Lukáš

One of the most productive contemporary Czech composers. His existing work is extensive, diverse in genre, and of great artistic value. For many years, Lukáš's career had been closely connected with the Czech Radio, for he had worked as a music editor for the Pilsen office. In Pilsen, Lukáš founded Česká píseň [Czech Song], a mixed choir with which he had worked as choirmaster for many years, writing or adapting most of the choir's repertoire. Lukáš has based most of his music on folklore: he has adapted a number of folk songs and dances.

The intimate knowledge of the melodics, rhythmics and structure of Czech folklore has become a dominant feature of his own musical expression. Lukáš's own compositions were also greatly influenced by the work of Miloslav Kabeláč (1908-1979), who gave Lukáš, already a mature and experienced composer at the time, consultations for nearly 10 years. Thanks to these consultations, Lukáš added modern composition methods to his technique, including such genres as concrete or electronic music. Lukáš has exploited all of the knowledge and experience thus gained in his works. His musical expression is based on the respect toward the traditional foundations of European musical thinking, especially the emphasis on melody. Rich and distinctive melodics is one of the greatest assets of Lukáš's music. It is based on modal principles, either using the traditional modal structure or new, specific, self-created structure. Lukáš's long experience with folk music is demonstrated by the use of certain typical elements and techniques derived from this genre (the principle of heterophony, the technique of ostinatos and pauses, etc.). In the extended modal field, Lukáš often prefers non-diatonic modes (doubtless influenced by Kabeláč and his "artificial tone generation"), including frequent octotonics and other unconventional modal sequences. In this field, the composer's unusual melodic imagination has found ever new and distinctive means of expression.
