Description

Dvořák was only twenty years old when he wrote his String Quartet No. 1 in A Major, Op. 2 (1862). The work is considered to be the composer's second important work, after the String Quintet in A Minor, Op. 1. Dvořák did not return to working on Op. 2 until 1887, when he was revising his early works. He deleted sections from this substantial quartet sparing only the Scherzo; the other movements where all cut by up to a third. The work was finally premiered by orchestral musicians from the National Theatre, but a printed edition was not published until the middle of the 20th century.

This edition replaces the older H7625.
