Product Description

Woodwind Quintet (Score and Parts)

Composed by Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904). Arranged by Alejandro Zapata.

The String Quartet in F major, Op. 96, nicknamed the American Quartet, is the 12th string quartet composed by Antonín Dvořák. It was written in 1893, during Dvořák's time in the United States. The quartet is one of the most popular in the chamber music repertoire.

Dvořák composed the quartet in 1893 during a summer vacation from his position as director (18921895) of the National Conservatory in New York City. He spent his vacation in the town of Spillville, Iowa, which was home to a Czech immigrant community. Dvořák had come to Spillville through Josef Jan Kovařík who had finished violin studies at the Prague Conservatory and was about to return to Spillville, his home in the United States, when Dvořák offered him a position as secretary, which Josef Jan accepted, so he came to live with the Dvořák family in New York. He told Dvořák about Spillville, where his father Jan Josef was a schoolmaster, which led to Dvořák deciding to spend the summer of 1893 there.

I really love this quartet, and I really enjoyed arranging it for woodwind quintet. I hope you like it and I will upload the rest of the movements soon.
