Zdeněk Fibich

Zdeněk Fibich Zdeněk Fibich (, 21 December 1850 in Všebořice – 15 October 1900 in Prague) was a Czech composer of classical music. Among his compositions are chamber works (including two string quartets, a piano trio, piano quartet and a quintet for piano, strings and winds), symphonic poems, three symphonies, at least seven operas (the most famous probably ''Šárka'' and ''The Bride of Messina''), melodramas including the substantial trilogy ''Hippodamia'', liturgical music including a mass – a ''missa brevis''; and a large cycle (almost 400 pieces, from the 1890s) of piano works called ''Moods, Impressions, and Reminiscences''. The piano cycle served as a diary of sorts of his love for a piano pupil, and one of the pieces formed the basis for the short instrumental work ''Poème'', for which Fibich is best remembered today.
