For chamber music fans: Dvorak's Sextet... the Allegro

• Jun 28, 2019 - 12:54

Musescore is amazing... one really gets the feeling one is both getting into the head of the composer and being the conductor/performer because of how Musescore manages playback. I'm having entirely too much fun with this.
A bit about this piece: (from Wikipedia) Antonín Dvořák´s String Sextet in A major, Op. 48, is written for two violins, two violas and two cellos. It was composed for the most part in May 1878 and was Dvořák's first work to be premiered outside Bohemia. Dvořák's German publisher Simrock offered the work to his friend and collaborator Joseph Joachim - a famous violinist and leader of a string quartet - and he together with other artists performed the work privately on 19 July 1879 before the composer. Dvořák' was enchanted by the performance.
This is the first movement: the Allegro. I have been working on this piece for the past month or so... I'm not a pro at this, but do endeavour to be as accurate as possible, as well as have the transcription reflect my favourite performances of the piece.
If you're not into chamber music, you might find this a bit bland; otherwise, please have a listen and let me know if there are any ways I could improve this.


Thank you.
