The first rendition of Kašpar Rucký was given by the Singing Association of Prague Teachers conducted by Metod Doležel. The premiere took place in Prague in the Smetana Hall of the Municipal House on Wednesday, April 6, 1921. Compared to other Janáček's female choruses, Kašpar Rucký/Caspar Rutsky was performed with much less intensity, which was mainly due to its enormous technical difficulty.
