The Thematic Catalogue is preceded by a brief introduction to the structure of the catalogue and a list of abbreviations used, and the catalogue proper is further divided into five subsections: Main Catalogue; Compositions from Childhood and Juvenilia; Torsos; Lost and Unrealized Compositions; and Dubious works. While the publication is in Czech, the names of instruments are in Italian which is also the language used in the incipits. One of the lists in the final section also provides established foreign (mainly English) titles of Kapralova’s compositions.
