Dvorak: The Chamber Music Survey

concert 24 September, 2017 - 3:00 PM

[BBLA at Bohemian National Hall]


With New York Philharmonic musicians and friends. Presentation of Antonin Dvorak’s chamber music masterpieces as well his lesser known gems. This year’s concert—featuring outstanding New York Philharmonic musicians and friends—pairs Dvorak’s Piano Quintet in A, Opus 81 with his first String Quartet, written in 1862. The rarely-heard early work illustrates the mindset of the young composer, the starting point from which Dvorak developed his distinctive and well-known compositional style. In the universally cherished Piano Quintet of 1887, the audience will enjoy the soulful melodies and lively Slavonic dance rhythms that have made Dvorak world famous.

Followed by a reception to meet the musicians and Dvorak Room viewing.
