Eight years after producing his first series, Dvorak
wrote a further eight Slavonic Dances
(1886) for four-hand piano. The outstanding success enjoyed by the first volume
ensuing revenue led Berlin-based publisher Simrock to commission a further series
dances. Dvorak complied with his request, but only after a period of delay and
reluctance to do so. If the mood of the first series reflected joyful
spontaneity with the use
of fast tempos, the second series was more lyrical in tone and contained
passages which contrasted all the more sharply with pieces constructed on
rhythms. In his choice of typical dances which, in the first series, was
Dvorak in this case incorporated into his second series a broader Slavonic
the south-Slav Odzemek [fast Wallachian male dance] and Kolo [round dance], the
Dumka and Polish Mazurka [folk dance in triple metre] were complemented by the
Spacirka [promenade dance], Skocna and Sousedska. This title is part of the
Complete Critical Edition of Works by Antonin Dvorak.
