About This Item

Dvor�k composed the Quartet in 1893 during a summer vacation from his position as Director (1892-1895) of the National Conservatory in New York. He spent his vacation in the town of Spillville, Iowa, which was home to a Czech immigrant community. He composed the quartet (his second attempt to write a quartet in F major; his first effort, 12 years earlier, produced only one movement) shortly after the New World Symphony, sketching the manuscript in three days and completing it in three weeks. "As for my new Symphony, the F major String Quartet and the Quintet (composed here in Spillville) � I should never have written these works 'just so' if I hadn't seen America," wrote Dvor�k in a letter in 1893. In his description of the New World symphony, Dvor�k was more specific: "As to my opinion, I think that the influence of this country (it means the folk songs that are Negro, Indian, Irish, etc.) is to be seen, and that this [the symphony] and all other works written in America differ very much from my earlier works, as much in colour as in character...".

This edition contains the full score for two violins, viola, and cello. This is a smaller study edition (4"x6"). Published by International Music Company.
