DAHA's unprecedented multi-year Dvořák Chamber Music Survey presents the composer’s chamber music masterpieces as well his lesser known gems. This year’s concert—featuring outstanding New York Philharmonic musicians and friends—pairs Dvořák’s Piano Quintet in A, Opus 81 with his first String Quartet, written in 1862. The rarely-heard early work illustrates the mindset of the young composer, the starting point from which Dvořák developed his distinctive and well-known compositional style. In the universally cherished Piano Quintet of 1887, the audience will enjoy the soulful melodies and lively Slavonic dance rhythms that have made Dvořák world famous. Followed by a reception to meet the musicians and a viewing of the Dvořák Room. The Chamber Music Survey is organized by violinist Laura Jean Goldberg of DAHA.
