Celebration of Teachers' Day at Faculty of Education of MU

27 Mar 2023

29. 3. 2023




Classroom no. 1, Faculty of Education, Poříčí 7, Brno


  • 1. Introductory speech by the Dean of the Faculty doc. Simona Koryčánková

  • 2. Lecture by Professor Judita Kučerová on Folk Ballads in the Context of Musical Tradition

    Ballads form a significant part of the Czech musical and folk heritage, especially in south-eastern and eastern Moravia. In their original environment, they attracted performers and listeners mainly by their content, dramatic development of conflict situations and ethical moments. These attributes and the possibilities for aesthetic and ethical reflection also attracted creative artists (writers, artists, composers) who found in the balladic repertoire an important source of inspiration. The aim of the presentation is to highlight the power of the balladic fund in its autochthonous and stylized form (on the example of selected ballads and their parallels in artistic music) and the possibilities of its use in music pedagogical practice. This is in spite of the current globalization tendencies in society and the multiplicity of cultural expressions.
