Reviews

'How many string quartets play encores? Those that don't should have a listen to the Delmé Quartet's highly entertaining selection. The playing is excellent.' (Classic CD)

'This is quite magnificent' (CDReview)
Dvořák’s best known piano music, in the shape of the Slavonic Dances and Legends, are duets, but he also wrote numerous collections of pieces for two hands. One of these was a group of Eight Waltzes composed late in 1879 and the first two weeks of 1880. Later that year, for a concert of his own promotion, Dvořák arranged two of the dances, the first and fourth, for string orchestra. The first, in A major, is amiable and relaxed, although a more plaintive mood is struck in the slightly brisker Trio.
