Books | String Quartet

Publisher: Simrock
Composer: Antonin Dvorak
Format: Sheet Music | Parts
In the summer of 1893 Antonin Dvorak sat down and composed String Quartet In F, Op.96. This beloved quartet was written whilst Dvorak was on vacation in rural Iowa. It is a slow movement for quartet and the finale sweeps along on a energetic, syncopated rhythm in the second violin and viola that shortly transforms itself into a wonderful patchwork of shifting accents. The first violin sings, first randomly and then voluptuously, atop this motoric accompaniment. The quartet is written for 2 violins, viola and cello.
