Six Characteristic Pieces

A cycle of six compositions for slightly advanced students of basic art schools. The music is written in comprehensible musical language with romantic flavours here and there, and stress on piano stylization. It is possible to play the pieces separately, or according to one´s choice.

Suites for piano

Suites for piano put three of Douša’s piano cycles, Little Jazz Partita, Holiday Suite and Postmodern Suite in a chronological order. Musical language of these compositions for children and the youth is very often inspired by the classical music together with jazz, which sometimes enables an interesting combination in a music form, eg. Two-part Fugue in Little Jazz Partita. However, there is much broader stylistic range in these Suites. Fifteen concert pieces gives the young pianists and their teachers the possibility of wide choice.

Stories about Trains and Locomotives

A cycle of seven compositions suited to the beginners or first grades of basic art schools. Short compositions in a very distinct character, loosely inspired by a book about the sorcerer Zababa (Pavel Nauman: Stories about Locomotives).

CD The Sounds of the Piano

The CD consisting of piano works by Eduard Douša was created during the covid times (October 2020 – July 2021) on the occasion of his jubilee.

It contains a selection of his piano works covering different technical levels from the instructive to concert compositions. There are four pianists involved in the interpretation – Ivo Kahánek, Eliška Novotná, Lukáš Michel and Eva Doušová.

CD Returns

Before last Christmas (2020) Musica Gioia published the CD Returns, to commemorate the jubilee of Eduard Douša (born 1951). The author has chosen a few pieces out of his radio recordings, which manifest the representation of his work.

Little sportsmen

Eduard Douša

Little sportsmen (1999) is a cycle of children´s songs on lyrics of Josef Brukner for children´s choir, piano and percussions. This cycle contains eight short songs about sport events (Jogging, Hockey, Ribbon Exercise, Football…), which can be sung also solo. This music is apt for children´s choirs at elementary or elementary music schools. Our music publishing house is publishing this cycle for the first time.

Nine jazz minietudes III

Eduard Douša

The new piano cycle of Eduard Douša has been created to continue the successful jazz minietudes I and II for solo piano issued in 2012 and 2017. This time again the author has written nine very skilful jazz pieces for four hands and he says: “I tended to write pieces offering young musicians as wide style and genre contrast as possible.”…

Water lilies

Jindra Nečasová Nardelli

Water lilies by Jindra Nečasová Nardelli are inspired by famous impressionist paintings of Claude Monet. The cycle is composed of three parts – 1/ Morning light, 2/ Two willows and 3/ Glare of setting sun in the anticipation of night, which evoke in the realm of sound colour the atmosphere of Monet´s paintings. Sense and feeling for the instrument colour with impresionist ground lead young musicians naturally to work with piano sound.
