Info:
The "American" Quartet shares the same hummable quality as the "New World" Symphony. In 1893, Dvorak was persuaded by his student Josef Kovarik to visit his hometown of Spillville, Iowa. The town had a large Bohemian community, and Dvorak felt completely at home there. It was in this conducive environment that he composed the F major quartet in a short period of time, and played through it with the Kovariks. The quartet remains one of Dvorak's most popular works.
