Composer: Antonin Dvorak
Editor: Peter Jost
Format: Study Score, Urtext Edition
Instrumentation: String Quartet

Composed in autumn of 1881, Opus 61 is the last of Dvorak's "middle" quartets by chronology for which Beethoven and Schubert served as the most significant models. Beethoven's influence, from thematic development to motivic treatment, is particularly noticeable in this work in C major. It is only in the finale that the typical Slavic tonal quality usually found in Dvorak's music surfaces somewhat more prominently. Due to a lack of time, the composer - contrary to his usual practice - turned to older, either discarded or hitherto unpublished themes from other works for three of the four movements.

This reliable Urtext edition continues the comprehensive Henle series of significant works of chamber music by Dvorak.
