About This Item

Dvorák was twenty years old when he wrote String Quartet No. 1 in A major, op. 2 (1862). Scholars consider this work to be the composer’s second most important work after the String Quintet in A minor op. 1. Dvorák returned to working on op. 2 in 1887, twenty-five years after its initial publication, when he was revising his early works. He removed sections from this substantial quartet, sparing only the "Scherzo"; the other movements where all cut by up to a third. The work was finally premiered by orchestral musicians from the National Theatre, but a printed edition was not published until the middle of the 20th century.

This new Bärenreiter edition presents the main musical text from the Complete Edition of 1989 which gives the work in its final form, after Dvorák’s revision. The edition is based on the autograph and on hand-written parts.

- With updated foreword (Cz/Eng/Ger), which are based on the latest research findings
