What Makes It Great? featuring The American Quartet
The revered and longtime Stanford University-resident St. Lawrence String Quartet joins Rob Kapilow to explore and appreciate Antonín Dvořák’s American Quartet, perhaps his most popular work. Formally titled Quartet No. 12 in F, it was written in 1893, when the composer was summering in Spillville, Iowa, an emigrant Czech community. It was the second piece he wrote in America; his first was the New World Symphony.
