Chamber Music Conversations with Dr. Bill Everett

The String Quartets of Smetana and Dvořák

In this episode, we’ll explore the string quartets of two legendary nineteenth-century Czech composers, Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák. We’ll hear how both composers combined Czech folk elements, autobiography, and a mainstream Viennese style to create some of the most intriguing string quartets in the repertory. This episode will feature performances of movements from Smetana’s String Quartet No. 1, “From My Life,” by the Shanghai Quartet and Dvořák’s autumnal String Quartet No. 13 by the Dover Quartet.
