DVOŘÁK Piano Quintet Op.81
A delightful Mozart appetiser is the prelude to a Czech family affair. Dvořák’s second piano quintet, featuring one of the composer’s most irresistible folk tunes, was an immediate popular success at its first performance in 1888. In his own Piano Quintet composed 5 years later, Suk also incorporated Czech folk and dance tunes, but he stamped his own individuality on this youthful piece with a beguiling blend of enthusiasm and melancholy. Five years after that Suk married Dvořák’s eldest daughter!
