Dvorak, Antonin / Dvorak Quartet – “String Quintet In E-flat / The Cypresses” – [Crossroads/CBS]
Antonin Dvorak (DVOR-jack) wrote the Quintet op. 97 in the summer of 1894 in Spillville, Iowa, a settlement of his fellow Bohemians. Dvorak loved folk music and here he takes rhythmic inspiration from the drumming of Iroquois indians. He would later say the summer in Spillville was his favorite time in America.
