Dvořák’s famous “American” Quartet combines Czech tradition and music

What a joy for Antonin Dvořák, then director of the New York Conservatory, to spend his holidays in Spilville! In this small town in Iowa, he finds many compatriots from Bohemia, but also the calm of the countryside which contrasts so much with the noise and the fury of the city.

Who would have thought that the black songs would remind him of the popular music of his homeland, also characterized by the use of the pentatonic scale (the black keys of the piano). We find an echo of this in his “American” Quartet, a warm, spontaneous and so lyrical work – in particular his Lento described as an “authentic pearl”.
