Sonatina In G, Op.100 was written in New York in 1893. Scored for Violin and Piano, it comprises four movements: Allegro Risoluto - Larghetto (Indian Lament) - Scherzo and Trio: Molto Vivace - Finale: Allegro. It was intended for the composer’s children, making the simple melodic lines and unadorned harmonies an accessible favourite of many young violinists. A delightful and rewarding piece, it is perfect for any recital.
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904) was best known for his New World Symphony, composed in the short time he spent in America – the rest of his career was spent in his native Bohemia and the rest of Europe.
