String Quartet in G Major, Op. 106

String Quartet in G Major, Op. 106

Series: Henle Music Folios Publisher: Henle Urtext Edition Score & Parts Composer: Antonín Dvorák Editor: Peter Jost

In autumn 1895, after returning from New York once and for all, Dvorák took up his former position as teacher at the Prague Conservatory. This clearly had an inspiring impact on him because in the space of just four weeks he composed a new string quartet in G major. Together with the Quartet in A-flat major op. 105, it forms a glorious close to his chamber music oeuvre. Echoes of Bohemian folk music are here mixed with cantabile themes, while his motivic working shows him to be a master at the height of his power. Even today, it seems almost as if we can feel the composer¬ís satisfaction with this work: “I am working so easily and it is going so smoothly that I could not wish it better.”
