Řídký, Jaroslavlocked

  • Milan Kuna


(b Liberec, Aug 25, 1897; d Poděbrady, Aug 14, 1956. Czech composer and teacher. At the Prague Conservatory he studied with Jirák, Foerster and Křička (1919–23), continuing his training in Foerster’s masterclasses in 1926. He worked as harpist of the Czech PO (1924–38) and conductor of the Czech Philharmonic Choir (1925–30), but his most important activity was in teaching composition at the Prague Conservatory and Academy of Music (1929–56), where he was appointed professor in 1955; in the previous year he had received the K. Gottwald State Prize. Řídký’s music is in the tradition of Dvořák: lyrical, folklike in its melody and finely crafted.
