Description Prominent Moravian composer Osvald Chlubna (1893–1971) was a pupil of Leoš Janáček both at Organ School and at his Master Class. To this day, even 50 years after his death, Chlubna remains one of the most active and loyal supporters of Janáček and especially Janáček’s theory. When Janáček was withdrawn from the Conservatory, Chlubna was the only teacher who continued with teaching Janáček’s Harmony in 1920’s. Chlubna wrote a multi-volume study on Janáček’s theory in 1965 in which he compares Janáček’s thoughts to other 20th century composers-theorists (Schönberg, Hába, Hindemith, Messiaen etc) and tries to prove the viability of Janáček’s theory. Chlubna offers examples from his own pieces (including String Quartets No. 2) and explains what parts of Janáček’s theory are used.
