Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904) originally wrote the first set of Slavonic Dances op. 46 for piano duet. It was composed in spring 1878, and still in the same year it was orchestrated by the composer for large symphony orchestra. The present arrangement, which is destined for the standard piano quartet, is tuned to the needs of the established performing practice offering up to twelve optional instrumental combinations. Piano is employed here as a harmonic and rhythm base over which perform three melodic instruments as well wind instruments (flute, clarinet, bassoon) as stringed instruments (violin I, violin II (or viola), cello) and their mutual combinations. The author of adaptation of Slavonic Dances for universal instrumentation is Martin Hybler.
