Dvorak's "American Quartet" flowed out of his pen during the first three weeks of his 1893 summer vacation in Spillville, Iowa. Most of it had already been composed in his head during the previous winter in New York City, except for the repetitious embellishment in the scherzo provided by a local redwing blackbird one morning. The Keller String Quartet from Hungary gives it a loving happy performance, then with an extra violist plays the string quintet that Dvorak created right then for himself and the local Spillville string quartet to play. The Quintet is nice, but not as memorable as the American Quartet. I replay this CD often.
