Piano Quintet in A Major Op. 81
Very few really important works have been written for piano quintet – alongside the famous works by Schubert; Schumann und Brahms; the quintet that Antonín Dvorák composed in 1887 certainly numbers amongst them. It shows the mature master at work; who knew how to combine formal unity with melodic ingenuity and sweeping rhythms. With its ethnic-inspired themes the piano quintet has become one of Dvorák's best-loved chamber music works; indeed even of Romantic literature in music. So it was high time for a Henle Urtext edition – 60 years after the Czech Complete Edition was published; it was time for a fresh look at the sources; including the autograph in the National Museum in Prague.
