Antonín Dvorák (1841 - 1904)
|Editeur||Editio Barenreiter Praha|
This volume of the complete works publishes for the first time in their entirety the six piano pieces which Antonín Dvorák wrote presumably some time in early June 1880, and which he titled "Six Morceaux pour Pianoforte". The compositions come from the period when Dvorák consciously focused on creating shorter performance pieces, with which he wanted to satisfy the requests of publishers, who strived to obtain and publish some of the works of the successful composer (other works from this period include Silhouettes, Waltzes, Eclogues, Album Leaves, or Mazurkas). Of the six pieces, Dvorák designated only four for printing, they were published by the Leipzig publisher Friedrich Hofmeister (1881). The publication is part of the first Complete Edition of the Works of Antonín Dvorák. The Preface is written by Frantisek Bartos.
