Dvorak, Antonin / Dvorak Quartet – “String Quintet In E-flat / The Cypresses” – [Crossroads/CBS]

Hemroid The Leader   11/15/2016   12-inch, Classical

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.
B side is the Cypresses For String Quartet – originally songs. Elaboraations on the classical string quartet.
