Waltz in A major, Op 54 No 1
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.
