Dvorák’s Piano Quintet in A Major occupies a lofty place in the chamber music canon shared perhaps only by two other works for the same ensemble from Schumann and Brahms. Throughout Dvorák’s, the muscular drama freely intermixes with numerous sections of pure, euphoric beauty with a constant interlacing of magical dance music abounding with spontaneity and vitality. Dvořák’s direct and poignant lyricism begins with the very first bars of music for piano and cello and it continues to bubble up in fresh new springs of melody: in pools fountains and waterfalls across all four movements.
